    Winter Festival Postponed


    The Winter Festival depends on the ice rink, and the weather hasn't been cooperating.  As of right now, Winter Festival is postponed one week, and we will continue postponing by one week until the rink is able to freeze.  Our ice experts :) expect to have to wait until February, but we'll see.  We'll have to be flexible and somewhat spontaneous about the actual date of the festival.  A Winter Festival with no ice rink would be no fun!  We'll be sure to announce by email and SMS  when the rink freezes.

    AIS Weekly Memo

    January 8-11, 2019

    Keeping Safe Parent Workshop:  
    Wednesday, January 16 from 2pm-3pm

     

    Since August, our teachers have been preparing for implementing the Keeping Safe Child Protection Curriculum (KSCPC) starting in January 2019.  The teacher training component of this program is complete, and we are on schedule to implement the curriculum after Winter Break.  Prior to classroom implementation, we will host a Keeping Safe Parent Workshop, which is designed to present information about the program to parents and to allow parents to ask questions.

    The KSCPC was developed by the Department of Education in South Australia.  QSI chose this program to be implemented in all QSI schools.  Almaty International School is one of the earliest schools within QSI to begin full implementation. The KSCPC is designed to teach our students strategies to be safe in a wide variety of developmentally appropriate ways.

    We would like as many parents as possible to join us for this informational workshop on Wednesday, January 16th from 14:00-15:00.

    Greetings AIS Community,

    AIS Winter Sports are off to a fantastic start.  AIS JV and Varsity swimmers competed on Tuesday, 4 December and placed 1st in the event!  Tulpar (U9) and Kyran (U12) swimmers competed on Thursday, 6 December and captured 
    2nd .
     
    Another COASH swimming event will be held in March.  The AIS Swim Team will continue to practice from January through the event in March.  If you are interested in participating, please let us know.
     
    AIS Badminton teams attended the COASH tournament Saturday, 8 December.  AIS had strong teams and we were able to win the boys and girls Varsity singles, girls Varsity doubles, and boys JV doubles titles.
     
    Please congratulate the swimmers and the badminton players.  They worked very hard and showed lots of improvement.

     
     
    Kyran (U12), JV and Varsity Basketball games will begin the week of 14 January.  Schedules will be released before Winter Break.  Please use the game schedule to help us anticipate and determine any conflicts.
     
    Please register your player for Basketball, Badminton, and Swimming via
    COASH (student registration) for the local leagues and events.  Also, use the AIS Sports Calendar to keep track of practices and games.
     
    The crowds of AIS fans at the events continue to grow.  The participants truly appreciate your support and enthusiasm.  You make the events special.  Wear blue.  Cheer loudly.  Cheer proudly.  Support everyone involved and keep up the AIS spirit!
     
    Please do not hesitate to communicate.  I look forward to seeing you on the sidelines.

     
    Sincerely,
    Patrick Binder
