While students are away, we are hard at work making changes at SSIS over the summer. We can’t wait for you to see the new entrance, the new MS science labs, and new furniture for the Dragon’s Den (plus many other things as well).
Here is the information you need to make sure you start off the year right!
SSIS holds an orientation day prior to the first day of instruction for ALL new and returning SSIS students. During this orientation period, students and parents will complete required forms, provide a current copy of each student’s passport and visa, obtain school ID cards (as needed), update contact information in PowerSchool, purchase school uniforms and supplies (as needed), put money on SSIS Caterers account, and receive locker assignments and schedules. Student may wear school uniforms or free dress that is appropriate for school. There will be House League points up for grabs for the House that has the most House League t-shirts on Orientation Day!
Attendance at orientation and registration day is mandatory for all students, new and returning. It is also required for each middle school student to be accompanied by at least one parent. The Middle School program will run from 10:00am to 12:00pm. Uniforms are optional for students.
Please call Ms. Hang Vu (0854130901 ext. 12001) in the Middle School Office if you have any questions.
