News & Events at WYIS


Good news, School: WYIS will be open as usual during the World Military Games.

Private transportation will be somewhat affected during that time. According to information we received from the Traffic Bureau, traffic on neighboring roads may be limited. Our Hankou and Golden Harbor buses will be operating as usual. If any non-bus riders would like to take the school bus during Military Games, please email bus@wyischina.com to apply.

If traffic hinders you from getting to school on time on October 17 or 18, WYIS will offer an excused tardy or absence for your child.

We're in touch with the Traffic Bureau each day and will keep you updated as we know more information.


Join us for Fall Concert on Monday evening, October 21. Fall Concert features our Secondary Choirs, Secondary Bands, and Children's Choir.

Tickets are not necessary. Join us!


Picture Day is THIS Thursday and Friday, October 10 and 11.

Group photos (classroom, advisory, etc) will be on Thursday. Individual student photos will be on Friday.

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 both their polo uniform top and appropriate bottoms to change into for the photo.


T-shirts are here with our NEW mascot design. We have both youth sizes (starting at 110) all the way up to adult XXL.

The shirts are high-quality Gildan brand made of 100% cotton. Price is 70 RMB.

Get yours today at Buffalo Goods in the lobby.


Instead of our usual Fall costume time at WYIS, this year Student Council (STUCO) has organized an all-school Spirit Week. Spirit Week will be held the last week of October, October 28 through November 1.

Students who choose not to dress up in the theme of the day must come to school in their regular school uniform.

Get ready, get creative, and show your WYIS school spirit!


Reports from September's MAP Testing are now available in DocBox on PowerSchool. Please log in to your PowerSchool Parent Portal to view your child's report.

We will also have a Parent Workshop on Friday, October 25, from 2-3. At the workshop we will share with you how to read these reports so you can understand how your child is progressing. To get the most out of this workshop, plesae bring a printed copy of your child's report. Please come, bring the questions, bring the reports, and learn together how to better understand these regular MAP tests your child takes here at WYIS.

Translation will be available.
