This weekend I attended a PYP Administrators course in Birmingham, UK. It was a busy two days. However, at one point I realized, “we can do this!” Part of that confidence was due to the hard work and leadership of our Director of Teaching and Learning, Carol Jordan. Thank you Carol!
Speaking of the PYP, please mark your calendars for the upcoming visit of our new PYP Coordinator, Miranda Rose. Miranda will be offering a parent information session on Wednesday, March 30 at 8:45 AM in the MPR. I hope you can join us.
This week is very busy. We will welcome the US Ambassador on campus to visit classrooms and to meet with the Administrative team on Wednesday. On Thursday, we expect to see all families for our Parent Teacher and Student-Led Conferences. Finally, on Friday, there is no school for students, however, Faculty and Staff will meet for a day of professional learning.
Have a wonderful week!
