CISSA touch rugby

Training is on today at 3.10pm on the field for anyone in Grade 5-8 wanting to take part in the CISSA touch rugby this year.  Also,  please remember to sign up to the team on Veracross. See you out there, coach Marsh, Kay and O’Brien.

Cafe use for MYP/DP Students

Due to a shift in our approach to Cafe use, only students in Grade 10 and up are allowed use of the Cafe without parental supervision. This means that MYP students in Grades 6-9 MAY NOT use the Cafe during break or lunch (nothing new), or after school without THEIR parent with them.

This means that the only time a 6-9th grade student should be in the Cafe is with their parent, not their friend’s parent… not someone’s friend’s, buddy’s, cousin’s, aquantance’s parent… their parent.

The downstairs portion of the Cafeteria, however, is a cool, comfortable, climate controlled area that IS available to MYP students until 4:15pm each school day for those that need to remain for ASA’s.

Please see Mr. Bratton with questions.

Changed access to the Café after school

Dear Students,

Please remember that only students in Grades 10-12 may access the Café in the Centre after school.  Students in Grades 5-9 who are registered for an activity that starts after 4:00 may wait on the first level of the cafeteria.

Thank you,

Mrs Tyoschin

Updates: Amy Yang

Amy Yang will come to attend the MYP Assembly at 2:30PM Fri Aug 14.  She is going to receive the Certificate of over 10 Years Service together with other 15 colleagues.

We will also take this opportunity to send her our greetings for her birthday on Sat Aug 15.  I’ll put a birthday card in the Staff Lounge at lunch time today for all of us as her friends at NIS Community to sign.

Language Acquisition

MYP English B Phases

Phase 3

Phase 3 students understand and respond to simple spoken and written texts. They interact and share information in a limited range of familiar situations, using basic language appropriate to a limited range of contexts.

Phase 4

Phase 4 students understand and respond to a limited variety of spoken and written texts. They engage in conversation and write structured text to express their ideas, opinions and experiences in a range of familiar and some unfamiliar situations.

Phase 6

Phase 6 understand and respond to a variety of spoken and written texts. They engage in conversation and write structured texts in a range of contexts. They can communicate substantial information containing relevant and developed ideas.

 

At NIS we have a couple of students in some MYP grades who have not yet reached the standard of Phase 3, but who are assessed against the criteria for phase 3 and as such are on Veracross as phase 3 students. A list of these students will be distributed to the relevant teachers by the end of the week.
