FOR A COMPLETE LISTING OF ALL SCHOOL EVENTS, VIEW OUR WEBSITE CALENDAR.
Parent-Teacher Conferences (PTC) will be held Friday, October 29 from 9-5.
At PTC, parents are invited to meet with their child’s teachers to discuss student progress and goals. The time is planned to be reflective and action-oriented. Conferences can be an important part in the education process, giving parents time to ask questions and to work together with teachers.
Upper elementary and secondary students are welcome to attend conferences. They may benefit from the opportunity to discuss their progress in an open forum with teachers and parents. Lower elementary parents are asked to attend without their children to allow for the most effective time with teachers.
Registration for PTC is now closed. If you have questions or problems with your PTC appointment, please contact the office. All conferences are in person at WYIS. At this time, we do not offer an option for meeting online.
Thank you for your support. See you Friday at PTC!
UPCOMING ONLINE UNIVERSITY SESSIONS
If you have an older student and are considering universities for their future, please spend some time visiting university websites to learn what they have to offer. Here are some tips to make your online browsing more successful:
- Make sure you are visiting the undergraduate section, then explore the academic programs and admission requirements.
- If you are looking at a school in a country where you are not a citizen, make sure you look in the international section.
- Look for online information sessions, which many universities offer. The list below is only a small sample of upcoming events. Click the links below for more information. (In most cases, students or parents must first register to attend. Please note, these are not private sessions for WYIS.)
-The University of Hong Kong: Saturday, October 30 (Must register to see the time)
-The University of Sydney: Sunday, November 7 from 1-3 PM (CST)
