The Season is in Full Swing
I hope everyone enjoyed a relaxing 3-day weekend. As we head into the second week of ASAs and the official start of YAC MS Basketball and HS Volleyball seasons, I want to give a shout out to our boys’ and girls’ volleyball teams. We sent two girls’ teams to ILBC with Coach Just and Coach Johnson, as well as two boys’ teams to YIS with Coach Franz and Coach Saw Htoo. All four teams had a great weekend, our our girls Yellow team finishing second overall, and our boys Yellow team finishing third.
Please join us Tuesday, September 3rd at 4pm as we host YIS for the first regular-season volleyball games of the year. We will have a boys’ and a girls’ A & B level game. We would love to see many ISY parents, staffs and students there to support the Chinthes.
Good luck to the MS boys and girls A & B level basketball teams as they head to ILBC for their season opener on Friday, September 6th at 4pm. Its not too far to head over and support our MS athletes.
Finally, grade 4 & 5 Power Soccer teams have been invited to ISM for matches on Saturday, September 7th. We hope this is the start of a fun elementary sports season for our soccer players. We hope to offer more ES sports this year than ever before.
I am hopeful that most students are getting settled into their ASA schedules by now. If you have any changes or questions about schedules, don’t hesitate to reach out to me at lisom@or stop by my office in B Building.

Next week will be our last full week of school. There will be slides up until Thursday. On Friday the 5th of June there will be no slides, the teams will have conferencing type activities planned, they will communicate these to you. Report cards will go home on Thursday the 4th of June.
Thank you to all those who attended the parent meeting last night hosted by Dr Hedger. There is a lot of planning going on at the moment and as mentioned later in June you will be able to view more information on what the new school year might look like.
Another week of virtual learning fun and experiences is over. We love keeping the learning connections with our students. Our teachers are working very hard to ensure that your children have access to the best learning virtually that we can possibly give them.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the survey this week. The feedback you provide is so important to us. An email will be sent out soon that will summarize the feedback given.
See this weeks blog for a recording of the virtual coffee morning meeting.
I hope everyone received their child/ren progress reports and that you had the opportunity to meet with your child’s class teacher. This was a wonderful opportunity to remain connected.
