High School Back to School Night 

Thursday September 7, 2017 

6:30 to 8:45pm 

Dear Parents, 

The year has started with great energy.  Everyone is excited about our recent graduates’ success in their IB and AP finals and in the excellent range and choice of colleges and universities that they are heading off to attend this fall.  Check out the recent article on the ISB Homepage that shares some of these results by clicking HERE.

We have started the year on a positive note with a challenge to all high school students with the Happiness Challenge. We have asked students to find ways to find ways to enjoy their high school experience, embrace challenges around them as opportunities for growth, and focus on fewer activities in order to have a richer high school experience. I will share the research around this in our first High School Principal’s Coffee on Monday September 25th from 8:30 am – 10:00 am.

We are hosting  two outside groups next week that will have parent presentations. FCD (Freedom From Chemical Dependency) will hold a parent session on Tuesday September 5th from 10:00 am – 11:30 am in the Upper Gallery. They will help us understand how to best support our students to make good choices when it comes to drugs and alcohol.  On Friday September 8th from 8:30 am – 9:30 am we have two consultants who want to share with you current research on Mindfulness and how we can help our students reduce anxiety and improve learning.


You are warmly invited to attend our “Back to School” evening to be held on Thursday September 7th. This event is your chance to follow in your child’s footsteps at the High School by briefly attending classes and meeting teachers. “Back to School” night starts at 6:30pm and continues until 8:45 pm with 10 minutes for each class.  

The evening will begin in the Theater at 6:30pm with words of welcome from the Head of School, Patrick Hurworth and myself. 

All parents will be provided with a copy of their child (ren)’s schedule in the Lower Gallery outside the Theatre, before the opening remarks in the theatre. We would like to request your arrival at 6:15pm to begin collecting your child’s schedule in the Lower Gallery outside the Theatre prior to the start of the event. 


We look forward to seeing you on Thursday September 7th. 


Best regards, 


David Munro
