Always the Stairs

The health benefits of climbing the stairs are undisputed. Talk to your Advisor or PE teacher for more information about why using the lift is an unhealthy choice but climbing the stairs is a healthy one. At NIS the lifts are there for people who need them. Students who are able to climb the stairs should be climbing the stairs and not using the lifts.  See for more advice….

Survey needed

Dear All,

Please take a few seconds to fill in the Survey and give us feedback of the system. Thank you!

If you have student coming into you this week, you would receive a form filled in by student and parent about themselves in your pigeon hole.  This was from a group of teacher who worked on the “HMW better transition our students into NIS?” last school year and it has be adopted into this year.

Idea: Investigate ways to effectively transition ELL students into NIS.

Purpose/Scope: Investigate ways to effectively transition ELL students into NIS. Consider the use of home language and sharing of personal information including family background in addition to educational background with the student’s teacher(s) before they arrive for their first day of school.

  • To get to know the student as person
  • Know, value and utilize their home language

Note for Arden & Andrei in Harare

As I mentioned at Briefing on Monday morning, some of you might like to write a short message to Arden and Andrei.

As you all know Zimbabwe is in turmoil, and it is a demanding and stressful situation for both of them.

I will put a large sheet of A3 paper on the table in the Staff Room with a pen for  you to leave a message. Kasson is “popping” over there to do some training for Arden and her team next week, and he will take it with him on Friday.





Research & citing help

Need help finding resources for a project or assignment? Not sure how to properly cite your sources? Help is available! Come to the library after school every Wednesday (3:15-4:15) for help with research and APA citations. As an added bonus, Ms. Lenk will also be there to assist with any EE questions!

Speech & Debate team early departure Friday, 25th January

To teachers of the students listed below…

Could these students have permission to leave a little early from their Block 5 lesson on the afternoon of Friday, 25th January? They have a bus to catch at 3pm from NIS to the stati0n. They would therefore need to leave your lesson by 2:45pm at the latest. They should mention this to you themselves and remind you when the time comes. Many thanks for making sure we leave on time!
