HS Open House & Parent Conferences by appointment

We have scheduled an Open House at the High School for Friday, March 18.  High School parents are welcome to visit school and attend classes with their students.  This will give you an opportunity to meet teachers and see the instruction that is taking place in our classrooms.

We will also be scheduling Parent Conferences by appointment for the afternoon of Monday, March 21 from 3-5 P.M. and for the afternoon of Friday, March 25 from 12:30-3:00 P.M. Parents may contact teachers to request appointment times.  Teachers and counselors have begun contacting parents to request appointment times as well.
 —-
Parents are always welcome to schedule individual meetings with teachers at alternative times at any point in the year.  Our teachers would also like more opportunity to partner with parents to support student learning.  We are hoping to find ways to proactively share more specific information about what is happening in classes on a regular basis and to help parents feel more comfortable addressing teachers directly if they ever have question about course content or student progress.

Thank you for your continued partnership and support.

Short Story Competition

Dear HS PTO,

 

A HUGE thank you from the freshmen English teachers. The mini-grant helped make this year’s short story competition even more successful than last year. We used the money to purchase gift certificates to Kyobo Books. Additionally, we hosted a lunch party for all the finalists, 18 students in total. We purchased sandwiches from Quiznos and ordered drinks as well. The incentives (lunch party, gift certificates) added momentum and interest in the competition.

This was all thanks to you. The support that the PTO provides ensures the improvement of teaching and learning at KIS. We look forward to another great year in 2013-2014!

 

Anthony, Natalie, Helen

Thanks from Ms. Cali – Mini Grant Award

Dear HS PTO,

I could not thank you enough for the mini grant you awarded the Theatre Department.  As you know, the musical was very expensive this year, and your grant helped us reach our goal of producing this show.  With the 300,000 KRW that you gave us, we were able to purchase the individual lights for the show, which was very important in the opening number and in the second act.  More importantly, however, the lights will benefit many future productions, in our classes and on the PAC stage.  These lights are very versatile, and can be used in a variety of different ways, and we couldn’t have purchased them without your help!
Thank you!  Please enjoy the attached photos from the show.
Thanks again for all that you have done to make this musical such an incredible success!  We couldn’t have done it without you!!
Best regards,
Erica Cali
