The Middle School GIN club accepted the Ice Bucket Challenge made by Orphan Impact in order to raise awareness for Orphan Impact. In return, the SSIS MS GIN club nominated the Fay School GIN club (located in Southborough, Massachusetts), the UWC Singapore Middle School Principal, and the SSIS MS Mathletes. In addition to getting a bit chilly, the MS GIN students raised $250 last year for Orphan Impact. Orphan Impact serves orphaned children in Vietnam providing training in technology.

This morning, the Grade 3 students launched their SuperUnit by "walking in the shoes" of someone who works at SSIS. Students learned about jobs like: the Admissions Director, a Gardener, an Assistant Principal, a PE Teacher, and so many more!
In one case, Annie, Han-Bee, and Apolline followed Mr. Nesmith (our Marketing Producer) through what it's like to find an interesting story on campus, compile video footage, record a Voice Over, select music, and share the story on the Internet.
Stay tuned: pics from many other different SSIS jobs to come!
