Dear Middle and Upper School Teachers, the new flat screen upstairs is primarily to showcase student learning from our Grade 6-12 students. If you have something suitable to run on this screen please let me know. This is a screen for all MYP/DP teachers to use. Thanks Ruth
Dear Grade 11, As we get deep into the Extended Essay process you may want some help or support or just a quiet place to work. Today after school I will be in the Library to support you 3.15 – 4.15pm. See you there!
Are these yours? Please come and see me if these belong to you..
Dear Grade 7 and 8 students,
If you were in SCISAC Volleyball last week you did not take the Writing B ISA test. You will take this test during Today during Extended Advisory instead.
Please go to D218 after you have registered with you Advisor (latest 8.10am) with your fully charged computers.
Today (Friday) during the Extended Advisory time some grade 7 and 8 students will be taking thier Writing B ISA tests as they were away at Volleyball when the test was taken last Thursday. Please see the list attached. They will need to go to room D218. Thanks.
Dear Grade 11 and 12 Students,
This week I am prototyping Space Hopping with Grade 11 and 12 students. This is an idea to provide supported independent study in the Library during time you would usually be studying in the lounge and, for Grade 12 students between mock exams. This means that you can work independently in the Library with a member of staff available to support you. The aim is to help you be more productive and focused during school study time. Interested? The prototype will be happening at these times this week:
Monday 10.40am Tuesday 11.45am Thursday 8.10am
You can only attend if you would usually be in the lounge or taking an online course at this time. I will meet anyone interested in the lounge at the start of the block.
Students in Grades 7 & 8 you will have your final ISA tests today.
Block 1: Grade 8
8A: Mr Messom D240
8B: Mr Orteza D343
Block 2: Grade 7

Please note the ISA testing schedule below that will necessitate some disruption to classes on Wednesday and Thursday next week. Apologies for the inconvenience and thanks for your patience. Invigilators have been notified. If you normally teach this grade during the testing time and you are not invigilating, your class will be cancelled. This is a change to previous years as the tests are online and are for Writing only.
Dear Teachers, If you are invigilating an ISA test next week please attend the training session that Cindy will run on Monday February 20th at 3.45pm. Bring your computers and the ISA testing handbook.
