Middle School

This Week in Middle School

Mar. 11

Finishing this week with online learning was not desirable, but I am proud to say students and teachers are so skilled in this they can make a seamless shift from in-person to online learning over one evening. I commend TIS middle school students’ perseverance, learning, and engagement in their classes.

Beijing Model United Nations Conference

Mar. 11

The MUN season will end next weekend with the annual BEIMUN conference. The conference will be virtual, allowing our students to participate without traveling to Beijing. It involves many international schools throughout China. The experience exposes our students to others, growing in their understanding of the world and individual critical thinking, debate, and teamwork skills.

Student-Led Conferences

Mar. 11

Students have begun preparing for their Student-Led Conferences to be held on the half-day of school on April 13. Conferences will start at 12:30 p.m. and end at 5: 00 p.m. Students prepare a portfolio of their learning during the 2nd and 3rd quarters to present strengths, areas of growth, and overall academic goals for the coming term. The process helps students think about their learning, becoming more aware of their efforts in class and how they are responsible for learning.
All students will complete a portfolio, but students are only required to do one conference on campus with their advisory teacher and parent each year. If your child has completed an on-campus conference in the fall and has no academic or behavior concerns, they can complete their conference with you at home. A form will be sent out confirming the completion of this meeting.

Ocean Awareness Contest

Last year we had a middle school student win the Ocean Awareness Contest. And I’d like to let you all know entry in the competition is in June.

If you or your child needs support getting through the busyness of life, don’t hesitate to reach out to Ms. Rong, our school counselor, or a trusted teacher for help and guidance.

Students were given the following notice about the Ocean Awareness Competition if they were interested in participating. This is not a school-related or sponsored activity but a good opportunity for our artistic and creative students to build experience outside of school.
