Hear from the Head

TIS Family,  

I trust that you were able to have a wonderful and relaxing holiday during the Chinese New Year. My favorite part of the holiday is family time. I have wonderful memories from my childhood regarding holidays that I cherish still today, and I hope that I am providing those same joyful memories for my own children. Relaxing time with family is special, so if you were not able to do so, I do encourage you to look ahead to the next opportunity and intentionally do something with your children.

February is the month that LifePlus schools remember the importance of being persistent. Persistence is the quality that provides the strength to continue when circumstances are difficult and overwhelming. Persistence is often the difference maker between those that do achieve success and those that do not. Persistence is also a quality that can be directly linked to both internal and external factors that are necessary to move people toward succeeding.

VEX Robotics Tournament

Tianjin International School is excited to be hosting its tenth annual VEX Robotics tournament. This year we have thirty teams representing ten schools throughout China that are engaged in competition for an opportunity to participate in the VEX Robotics World Championships taking place in Dallas, Texas, USA later this Spring. A special thank you goes out to the Operational and Facilities teams that have worked together to make this event special for the students. Furthermore, I am thrilled to see the PTO involvement by many parents working positions in the event. Congratulations to all of our teams and their diligent work.

Enjoy the last week of February!
