HOPE FOR THE HOLIDAYS: WYIS Water Buffaloes Toy & Clothing Drive Event
Next week begins Hope for the Holidays, a toy and clothing drive event led by our students. We encourage you to donate new and gently used toys and clothing items to benefit underprivileged families both in Wuhan and in the Philippines. Information is being sent home with students this week with more information about how you can participate.

Students must wear their uniform polo for all photos - white and green are both okay to wear. If it is PE day, students must bring their polo uniform to change into for the photo.
AFTER-SCHOOL ACTIVITIES UPDATE: TABLE TENNIS SIGNUP
We will finish our last table tennis practice on December 14. If you would like your child to continue learning table tennis after school, please sign up for the second Table Tennis Club beginning December 10 at 8pm. If you have questions, contact Susie Xiong, After-School Activities Coordinator, at Susie.email@example.com.
ELEM. SOCCER GAME DECEMBER 9
Come to campus on December 9 to cheer on our younger WYIS Water Buffaloes in a soccer game. We are having an elementary soccer game with Wuhan WEDZ Experimental Primary School at 4pm on Wednesday, December 9. If it rains that day, the game will move to December 16. Students who will participate in the game are mostly 5th graders, with some from grades 3-6 as well. Go, Buffaloes!
POWERSCHOOL REPORT CARDS & ATTENDANCE
As you may know, you can access report cards for your child through Doc Box on PowerSchool. We are having an issue with attendance not showing correctly on the report cards for secondary students, so all attendance and tardies show a 0. This may not be accurate for your child. To see an accurate record of attendance and tardies, please log into the parent portal and view Grades and Attendance for your child. If you have questions, please contact Agnes Liu (firstname.lastname@example.org).
