New NIS T-Shirts and Shorts

On Thursday 23 March, 2017 PTA will be launching advanced sales only of a newly designed NIS t-shirt.  Available in two colors, this t-shirt has been specifically designed to compliment and co-ordinate alongside the athletics department apparel (please see attached flyer and order form). In addition to the t-shirts, navy blue shorts will also be available. 

T-shirts and shorts samples/trial sizes will be available for you to view before and after-school on March 23, March 24, March 27 at the PTA Shop. Order forms can be picked up at the PTA Shop as well. Orders are submitted to the school cashier and must be received by Wednesday, March 29 at 4:00pm.  

PTA very much hopes that the addition of new items such as these prove popular with students, faculty and parents alike.

A dell.

MUN Room Clean-Out

Hello All,

D248, otherwise known as the “MUN Room” will begin a repurposing on Friday, March 24th. The Maths teacher and MUN supervisors have done a great job removing relevant materials, now it’s your turn. Please consider this a “last call” for any and all materials in this space. Highlights include notepads, water bottles, and a mountain of shredded paper!



It’s World Poetry Day!

Today, March 21 is the UN World Poetry Day! The PYP will be celebrating with a “Poem in Your Pocket” so MYP/DP students are encouraged to stop a little person in the hallway or playground and have them read you a poem (or better still- have a poem in your pocket ready to share with them as well!).

The library will have classic poetry books available on the back tables for those who would like to indulge in some of the classics- Wordsworth or Thomas, Plath or Dickinson, Longfellow or Poe, Rumi or Whitman, Teasdale or Blake. Expand your horizons!

Hope to see you in the library-
