Inter house spelling competition

On Thursday the 15th of January we will be holding the inter house spelling competition.  Your house needs 2 boys and 2 girls from grade 6-8 and 2 boys and 2 girls from grade 9-12 who are keen to compete in a new and improved spelling competition.  We have revised the previous format and instead of an individual effort you will be working in house teams to topple the opposition. Contact your house leaders and/or captains.

See you there!

Friday Assembly: A New Era is Born…

This Friday, January 9th 2015, the NIS MYP/DP will usher in a new era in assembly planning and execution.

Our Mission: To avoid running over time.

Our Goal: Happy Block One teachers.

Our Dream: 60 minutes of uninterrupted learning each and every Friday AM.

The Plan:

Students-Please put your bags in your locker and report directly to the theatre. No homeroom required! Why not help your hardworking HR teacher but sitting together with your fellow “Homeroomies” to make attendance a breeze. Late? Check in with the nurse, put your bag in your locker, and get to the assembly! We believe in you.

Teachers-Please remember to bring your laptop to the theatre to take attendance. Your little angels will be sitting together eager to be counted.

Thanks for your flexibility, can-do attitude, and willingness to participate in this epic undertaking. If this works, we’ll do it again. If it doesn’t work, we’ll fix it. If it really doesn’t work, we’ll bin it. Risk takers unite!

Get caught in a random act…

Read something really great lately and wish you had a place to share it?

Bring your lunch and join us in Random Acts of Reading Thursdays at lunch in room C115 (the strategy zone).  Share what you’re reading that really excites you or maybe you’ll find inspiration from others.

Readers of all types, speakers of all languages,  and students in grade 6 and above are welcome!

“Reading without reflecting is like eating without digesting.” -Edmund Burke

Thanks so much to those of you could make it to our coffee today! I have attached the slides and the homework guidelines to this post as a reminder to those that were in attendance and as an FYI to those who could not make it. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns regarding these or any other topics. Looking forward to our next opportunity to connect!
