News & Events at WYIS


Field Day is this Friday, May 17. Color teams are now posted in the cafeteria. 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.


There will be a check–out fair for all secondary students (leaving and returning) in the library on Wednesday, June 5, from 11: 30 until 1:00 pm. The check-out fair is a one-stop service for students to return all their textbooks, library books, electronic devices, and clear all outstanding accounts. The school librarian, registrar, IT office, and Finance Director will all be present during the fair and will facilitate the end of year check–out.

Because of the check-out fair, the Hankou bus and Golden Harbor bus will depart from the school at 1:00 pm. Students who wish to order a school lunch can continue to do so.


During Quarter 4, our EC5 students have been learning about buying and selling. Their final project is a market where you can purchase handmade items from the students.

The market will take place in the 5th floor cafe area from 1:30-2:45 on Friday, May 24. Parents, students, and staff - come join us in the market and help support our EC5 students. .


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).
