We would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank-you for all of your support and flexibility over, not only these past two months during the campus closure, but throughout the whole school year. Despite some challenges along the way, it has truly been wonderful working together as a school community.
Transitions... a word we have become familiar with
We want to wish all of our students and families who will not be returning next year to AISL the very best in their new chapter. Whether that means moving to a new country and/or a new school, please know that you will be remembered. We always tell our students, "once a leopard, always a leopard" and we hope that you will stay in touch.
For those students returning next year, we hope that the fly-up session this past Tuesday was helpful in learning more about what to expect in the next grade-level. Below are some images from our afternoon sessions.
We realize that this is the time when we usually share next year's class lists with families; however, as we are still in the process of confirming class sections, we will share these with families closer to the start of school.
We recognize that the June/July holiday may present a very different routine compared to other years. For some families, depending on where they are and how their travel plans may be affected, that may mean remaining at home for some time. We wanted to share some ideas on how you might wish to continue bridging learning with your child(ren) over the holiday months. Our teachers and librarian have put a few 'Bridging Learning' resources together to provide some ongoing learning opportunities until we return in August. They are not mandatory, but rather, ideas to explore should you wish. Students can access these resources through Seesaw and you can click here or on the image below to access these resource ideas:
Please share your feedback with us
After eleven weeks of Distance Learning, we have grown stronger as a teaching team and as a school community. With the shifts and tweaks along the way, we would love to know how the experience was overall for your child and family. We would be grateful for a few minutes of your time to complete a feedback survey about your experience.
Wishing all of you a wonderful holiday break!
Our Primary faculty had some fun exploring Bitmojis as part of creating a farewell slide (coordinated by Jill Daley). We wanted to extend wonderful holiday wishes to each of you and let you know that we are grateful to have been part of a wonderful year.
We look forward to seeing many of you again soon.

The Leopard's Tale is our main medium to keep our families informed on such things as the day to day happenings on campus, after school activities, summaries of any arts and sports events, helpful resources, and important dates and reminders.
