PTO WELCOME TEA
All WYIS parents are invited to join us on Friday, October 22, for our PTO Welcome Tea. The Welcome Tea offers a great opportunity to connect better with other parents and our school team. Join us to connect with others, learn what's happening in PTO and the school, and to help build a stronger community. The Tea is from 1-3 in the Performing Arts Building lobby.
Spirit Week will be the last week of October, the 25th-28th. We encourage all our students to dress up in the day's theme to have fun and show their school spirit. Below are themes for each day:
• Monday: Pajama Day - Wear school-appropriate pajamas to school!
• Tuesday: Color Day - Wear as many colors as possible, or maybe only just ONE color.
• Wednesday: National Pride Day - Wear something from your country that makes you proud.
• Thursday: Character Day – Dress up as a character from one of your favorite books or movies.
If a student chooses not to dress in a theme for the day, that's no problem, but they must wear their appropriate school or PE uniform for the day. Have fun with this, students, and show your WYIS school spirit!
Parent-Teacher Conferences (PTC) will be held Friday, October 29 from 9-5. Registration will open on October 18. View the complete PTC announcement here.
Please note: PTC is a day off of school for students. Parents, if you are not able to get the appointment time you need with your child's teacher, please email them separately to schedule a time to meet. If you would like to book an appointment with a staff member who is not on your booking list, please email the school office at email@example.com.
UNIFORM FOR COLDER WEATHER
As temperatures drop outside, students may choose to wear layers under or over their uniform. Below is a reminder of what layers are approved. For the complete uniform policy, please view our Parent-Student Handbook.
LAYERS UNDER UNIFORM CLOTHING
Students may choose to wear layers under their uniforms (both regular and P.E.) for warmth or for other reasons. If a student chooses to wear layers under his or her uniform that are visible outside the uniform (leggings under shorts, for example), the layers must adhere to the following guidelines:
- Layers must be solid colored and either navy, grey, black, or white.
- Any logo, words, or other motifs must collectively be the same size or smaller than a student ID card (8.5cm x 5.5 cm).
Students may wear their choice of outerwear to school to protect from cold temperatures. Inside the school building, however, students may only layer over their uniforms with official WYIS outerwear. Any visible outer layers (vests, jackets, etc.) must be the WYIS uniform or outerwear.
Picture Day will be next Tuesday and Wednesday, October 19 and 20, 2021. Group photos (classroom, advisory, etc) will be on Tuesday. Individual student photos will be on Wednesday. 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.
