16″ Softball! Play Ball

Come out to the field at 4 to play some good ol’ fashioned Chicago Style softball (weather permitting). All teachers and students grade 6 and above are invited to come! No experience necessary. Let me know if you have any questions.

If you don’t use inches, here is a diagram with a coin, wiffle ball, magic 8 ball, softball, and cantaloupe to show you exactly how big a 16 inch softball is!

Easy to catch and easy to hit!

Vegetable Sale today in center foyer

Weather permitting, there will be another vegetable sale in the center foyer at 4 PM this afternoon.    (Wednesday May 27th).

The Green Team would like to apologize for mistakes made last week in the vegetable sale.
It turns out that the radishes were not very fresh. The Green Team knew that they were grown out of season but we had no idea that the radish tasted like wood.

As a gesture to our customers, the Green Team will offer free spices and herbs this afternoon.
Rosemary, coriander and mint will be freely available this afternoon to anyone who would like to spice up their dinner.

Pfrang Flower Vases

We are missing 19 of these vases that were used for the Pfrang Gala. Could you please return them to either my pigeon hole or to Kath’s? If you would like to buy it from the Pfrang community, it’s only about 20 rmb. Thanks,

What are those walls all about?

Do you feel like you are at Hogwarts with the hallways changing all the time? Old paths gone, new paths created. Have you run into a wall lately?

The Learning Support, PYP Mandarin and a few office areas are being redefined to better meet the learning needs of our school.

Grand opening in August!
