It is my great pleasure to welcome you all to CIS for the 2016-2017 school year. I am looking forward to seeing familiar faces and am excited to greet our new incoming students and families. From my past 2 years of experience as the PYP Coordinator I know that CIS is a place where the collaboration between students, parents and teachers optimizes the learning experience for all.
All the new teachers safely arrived in the Philippines. They have been busy getting classrooms ready and familiarizing themselves with the curriculum. All our teachers are enthusiastic, qualified and experienced teachers who will facilitate the kind of learning that develops inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people. It is our mission to cultivate the whole child by encouraging them to become positive, resilient and flexible learners. Our program is designed to teach rigorous standards through which they are encouraged to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners. In this day and age it is imperative that we teach our students about intercultural understanding and respect of all people- with their differences- so that they become future leaders that help create a more peaceful world.
In my roles as the Elementary Assistant Principal and PYP Coordinator I look forward to working with our whole school community to provide guidance and leadership to ensure we have an outstanding school year of learning.
Please feel free to come and talk to me regarding our program or experiences at our school. The more you know and understand about our program and the more we know about your perceptions and experiences, the better learning experience we can provide for your child.
I am looking forward to this new and exciting School Year.
