I would like to extend a very warm welcome to all of you for the school year 2018/2019. A very special FIS welcome to our new families. I trust your journey with the school and your time in our region is a fruitful one. I would also like to welcome our new staff who have come from all over the world, bringing with them an exciting mix of experiences.
Apart from the weekly Newsletter, I encourage you to follow what’s happening at the FIS through the website and social media posts including Facebook and Instagram. These sites will be regularly updated and will provide an accurate snapshot of what is happening at the FIS.
There is a lot to be excited about as we begin the school year. We are in the second year of our Strategic Plan for 2017-2022, we are seeking Middle Years Program (MYP) authorization and there will be various school-wide celebrations throughout the year to commemorate our 20-year anniversary as a school.
Parents are an integral part of our school community and I extend a warm invitation to be active participants in the extensive offering of events throughout the school year.
The PTO Welcome Back BBQ will be held on Saturday, September 8, from 11:00 until 15:00 and I look forward to seeing many of you there and throughout the course of the school year.
Wishing everybody a strong start and a successful school year.
