ELEMENTARY FINE ARTS SHOWCASE THIS FRIDAY

Last Friday's Secondary Fine Arts Showcase was spectacular! Join us for the Elementary Showcase this Friday, May 10, at 8:30AM.

The 2019 WYIS Fine Arts Showcase entitled “We Are the World” represents a celebration and expression of us, as people of the world. The world doesn’t always fit inside national borders, educational circles, or socioeconomic classes. Instead, we - along with our individual nationalities, cultures, languages, passions, abilities, values, appearances, experiences, and dreams - are the world. Each person was created intentionally with purpose, and we all have the ability to make a difference for good.

Through this showcase, we hope to use art and music to express our uniqueness and to share our individual dreams of how we can change the world. Standing together while celebrating our individuality is one small way we can begin to make the world a better place.

If you are the parent of an elementary student, please read this letter containing what to wear and other important performance information.

FIELD DAY

Field Day will be held on Friday, May 17. Color teams will be posted in the cafeteria on Thursday, May 9. The competitions begin at 9 and end shortly before 12, with various activities in the afternoon.

As you prepare for Field Day, please remember the following:

  • Wear your team’s color and dress appropriately for the weather
  • Since games are held outside, we suggest bringing a hat to shade from the sun and a water bottle to stay hydrated.

If you have any questions, please contact Aaron Householder at aaron.householder@wysichina.com.

PARENT WORKSHOP SUCCESS

We had a wonderful turnout for a great afternoon of sharing and learning at last Friday's parent workshops on Child and Adolescent Development!

We would love your feedback about the workshops. Tell us what you would like to see done differently, or share what you thought went well.

PROCEDURES FOR EXITING FAMILIES

We understand that some families will exit from WYIS at the end of year. We would like to make your leaving process as smooth as possible. If you are planning to leave WYIS at the end of year, please fill out the Notice of Departure form by May 22. This will help us to prepare all the necessary documents for you. All of the documents for exiting families and graduating students will be available for picking up from our Registrar Ms. Agnes Liu from Monday, June 10 between 9 am to 3 pm. All the yearly report cards for returning students will be available over the summer vacation or during the 2019/2020 school year.

Please make sure you have no outstanding books, equipment, instruments or payments due before the last day of school. According to our policy, the registrar cannot release any documents before everything is clear. If there are any refunds you believe are due to you, please discuss this with the Finance Office directly.

Please contact our registrar if you have any questions (registrar@wyischina.com).
