Would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who were involved in making this year’s China Day a success.  Many thanks to Sunny Shang who spent endless hours.  To all those in the Student Service Club who faithfully served throughout the Day. Those guest performers and teachers; Narnia PreSchool, Oak Trees Early Childhood Centre and Princess Shera’s Dance School.  And of course, to our own students’ performances, who learnt Chinese dances and poetry to share with us all.  And last, but most definitely not least, to our very own TIS Kitchen, Manager Liu JinWei and staff who put together the “Lunch Boxes.”  Thank you all for another very informative, educational, cultural, and entertaining China Day!! Happy New Year!

Middle School Play

On Monday after school was the first play informational meeting. About 14 students went to the meeting, but there is still a possibility of joining the production. Please talk to Mrs. Way for further information. Taking part in this activity is a great way to build skill and experience on or off the stage.

To Parents

This week we just passed the middle of the third quarter. Parents are encouraged to find a special time to sit with your son/daughter and review your child’s progress in their classes, reading teacher comments and looking their grades for far this quarter.


AMIS High School Honor Choir

We have two students that will be traveling to Germany to participate in this international event. Please remember to support them in all of their diligent work.




We have just finished our season two of sports and are excited about season three. Please support our high school soccer teams as they begin practices this week.


High School Lock-In

Please note your calendar for March 2nd – March 3rd. Many memories will be built and enjoyed as we enjoy this great all night activity. Please look for announcements from our StuCo leadership concerning this event.


AP Exams

As students are challenged to learn material at this advanced level, please encourage them in their struggle. AP courses take a significant amount of work, but remember that our teachers are prepared and excited to help your student. Before your child becomes overwhelmed with the challenge, please encourage them to speak with their teacher about extra assistance. AP students asking their teachers for extra help is a normal routine for AP courses.
