12.15 Family and Student Update
Dear Parents and Students,
It is difficult to believe, but we have now reached the final school week of 2023, and the Winter Holidays are just around the corner. As we head into the festive season, I wish you, your family, friends, and loved ones, a wonderful and well-deserved break, on behalf of the AIS Leadership Team. Together, we have achieved and done so much! May the holidays bring you joy, love, peace, and lots of laughter.
Wonderful Winter Fair
Thank you for making our annual Winter Fair the successful event it was! We’re grateful to all of the parents and students who attended and to everyone who made donations big and small to help make the fair even more special. The Grand Prizes were fantastic, thanks to the generosity of our parents!
As you might imagine, our amazing PTA Executive Team deserves our sincere appreciation for the incredible role they played in coordinating and planning the festivities. Please join me in thanking Jane Lam, PTA President; Lesley Wong, PTA Vice-President; Wing Zhai, Treasurer; Collie Ng, Sourcing Executive; Jennifer Lui, General Executive; and Meg Ding, General Executive for their leadership and dedication. These ladies are truly inspiring! It took many hours of dedication and so much passion to coordinate the 96 volunteers who all pitched in, on behalf of our students and families, and, what is really special about them all is that they always did everything with a smile. Thank you, PTA!
Parents Make The Difference
The December issues of Parents Make the Difference newsletters are here and ready to use. As always, these resources are wonderful tools to support you with practical parenting strategies and ideas for each age and stage of your student’s learning journey.
Be sure to check out the Daily Learning Planners, as they have many terrific prompts that you may find helpful over the Winter Holidays!
Happy New Year!
I wish you health, prosperity, and a fabulous New Year ahead. May 2024 be everything you’re hoping for!
