Hear From the Head

Dear TIS Family,

I am excited to say that we have entered December, which means we have only two more weeks remaining of the semester. Two weeks ago, we kicked off the Christmas season with a wonderful drama, and over the next two weeks, we have more festive events scheduled. I look forward to seeing you at school during these events. Until then, here are some updates to keep you connected.

New Staff Update
I'm pleased to say that as of this week, ALL staff are in China! Here is the current status of staff that have yet to make it on campus.

Musser Family: Quarantine completed. Arriving in Tianjin tomorrow.
Cotton Family: Complete quarantine next week.
Ferguson Family: Began quarantine on November 30.
Nicholson Family: Began quarantine on November 30.

Christmas Celebration
We are excited to invite you to our Christmas Celebration on Friday, December 17. This festive morning is sure to be a combination of learning and enjoying treats from around the world. The goal of this day is to celebrate the historical elements of Christmas traditions from a variety of countries represented in our school.

Parent Workshop
Many thanks to Mr. Andrew Sickler, who ran the parent technology workshop earlier this week. For the parents who attended I hope that you have been able to implement some of the helpful parental controls available and build healthy boundaries around your child’s technology use.

Main Gate
This week you may have seen a new structure by the guardhouse at the main gate. This temporary structure will primarily be used for the purpose of mail delivery. As we comply with campus security requirements set out by authorities, all mail packages will now be opened outside by the recipient before entering the building.

Please come and enjoy the Secondary Christmas Concert tomorrow night. Our band and choir directors, and students have worked tirelessly to provide us all with a wonderful experience.

Warm Regards,

Mr. Ryan Witt
Head of School
