Feedback and Performance

October is upon us and there is a lot going on in the ISB High School.  We hope you had a great Autumn Festival break.  We have recently opened up the new Parent Portal for our grade book so that you can get feedback on your daughter or son’s progress. The link is on Dragon’s Gate or you can use the link here at: //sis.isb.bj.edu.cn/public/home.html

We will be posting progress reports on October 14th and Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on October 15th and 16th. This is an excellent time to gather feedback on student progress and use the feedback to guide studies for the rest of the semester. Here is a good article on making the most of Parent Teacher Conferences from NPR (click here).

To make flu vaccinations convenient, shots will be available for ISB students and parents on October 8 and 9 between 3:30 and 6:00 pm in the MSHS Nurses’ office (room 1206). The vaccines will be administered by Parkway Health at a cost of 75RMB each, payable in cash only. Students who get a shot will also get an ice cream, courtesy of our PTA.

 To ensure enough vaccines are ordered, please email bj.customerservice@parkwayhealth.cn (include the names and ages of the people getting the shots, as well as the date you would like to attend).

October is also a big month for performances. Our Varsity teams will be traveling to many locations for their end of season competitions for ISAC and APAC.

Our teams will compete at the following locations:

·         APAC Volleyball – Shanghai American School, Pudong

·         APAC Baseball – Shanghai American School, Puxi

·         APAC Rugby – Hong Kong International School

·         APAC Tennis – ISB

·         APAC X-Country – Brent International School, Manila

Our High School play ‘Bone Chiller’ will be performed on October 29-31 in the Theater.  Please come out and support our theater production one of those days.

We look forward to seeing you at school at the Parent Teacher Conferences and at Bone Chiller!
