September Is Here!

Dear Parents,

It is hard to believe that we are already 4 weeks into school and classes are well underway.  The High School Principal’s Blog will be updated monthly to give you an idea of what is coming up in the high school each month.

Over the course of this month we are making a concerted effort to inform students of the impact drugs and alcohol may have on their lives as they face difficult decisions in their high school and college years.  We had a visit from a DEA agent who shared the dangers of illegal substance consumption in China. As a follow-up, our mentoring sessions worked on problem solving in difficult situations.  We had a visit from the Freedom From Chemical Dependency group from the United States last week. They worked with students on decision making skills and they shared data about making healthy decisions. On September 16 ISB will host the first ever International Schools Drug Education Forum in our theater starting at 6:30 pm. We encourage you to attend the forum and learn more about drugs and their impact on the community.

We are hosting the High School Principal’s Coffee Morning on September 17 from 8:30 am – 10:00 am in the Multipurpose Room.  Everyone is welcome to attend and there will be a wide range of presentations on what we have in store for the ISB High School this year.

Erma Anderson is a visiting math consultant and she will be hosting and evening for parents.  Erma will speak with you about the shifts in math education to support students who not only can “do” math, but students who understand and apply mathematical skills and thinking. Erma is an engaging presenter who will push your thinking about what is best for students in math education. The presentation will be held in the High School Cafeteria from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm on Thursday September 24th.

These are just some of the exciting things going on this year at our school.

I look forward to meeting you this year!
