HS eNews September 15 – 20


Dear Parents,

The academic year is well underway and we now see the start of a wide variety of ASA (After School Activities), varsity and JV teams for girls and for boys, weekend language classes, and special events sponsored by the PTA.  This is in addition to their daily academic classes. It is very important that students be very selective in their choice of activities and give their best effort in each activity in order to be successful in experiencing and achieving full benefits of the core values promoted at SSIS: Academic Excellence, Balance in Life, Sense of Self, Dedication to Service, and Respect for All.

The PTA Family Fun Day

The PTA Family Fun Day will be held at SSIS, tomorrow, Saturday, 13 September from 9-12. Please come and enjoy a day of activities, food, drinks, snacks, and fun. Proceeds of the day go to charities.
