Remember to Turn In Move-a-Thon Pledges
Please remember to turn in your pledges (or pay online) this week. We will of course continue to accept pledges as long as they keep coming in, but the class prizes will be determined by the funds that come in this week.
PTSA meeting material
In addition to a presentation from members of the Green Team and a discussion of sustainability projects at the school, you also missed informative overviews by Principal Dedy and by Dr. Michele Aoki, International Education Administrator for SPS. If you would like to learn more about JSIS data & assessments, and the vision for immersion in SPS, take a moment to read their presentations (see below). Q&A was lively, especially regarding immersion continuation at Hamilton, and Dr. Aoki graciously offered to return for a future meeting for more discussion.
