Hello Superstar Students,
Tomorrow’s Break will last from 10:05am-10:30am. An FYI that the football pitch, bamboo forest, and gaming room will be closed. Thanks for your help with this. Also, a reminder that school finishes at 11:00am tomorrow as well.
The schedule is here as a reminder. Have a great day!
A slight adjustment has been made to tomorrow’s schedule out of respect for the annual anniversary of the Nanjing Massacre. The plan is to delay the break until approximately 10:05am, after the symbolic air raid siren at 10:01am concludes. Please keep students in class until the siren finishes sounding. At that point students are welcome to go to break and teachers are invited to the staff lounge for some last-school-day-of-2019 treats. Our leadership team will cover break-time teaching.
Also of note is that the only NIS “bells” that will sound tomorrow should be the 7:55am “get to class!” bell and the 11:00am dismissal. Beyond that it will be up to all of us to help students move between Homerooms/Advisories, assemblies, and Break based upon the schedule.
Many thanks for your efforts!
