Dear QSI International School of Bratislava Community,

I am pleased to announce that the construction of the new Samorin campus remains on schedule for our 8 January 2018 grand opening.  About 25 QSI Bratislava teachers and staff members visited the new buildings and saw their new classrooms on Sunday.  Although, it was cold and a bit rainy, everyone was able to see the beauty of this new building and the quality of the building materials...even the beautiful landscaping!

On this same note, please see the enclosed RSVP for the Parent Tour on Tuesday, 12 December.  We will have snacks and refreshments, as well as teachers, students and administrators showing you around the new campus and answering any and all questions.

Lastly, please enjoy the extended weekend, as our teachers and paraprofessionals will be off to the QSI International School of Papa (Hungary) for a two-day Professional Development.  Each year we all go back to school, exploring strategies and methods to improve on the craft of teaching.

That's all for now...have a great week!

Best regards,

Daniel

CLASSROOM NEWS
6 Year Old Class
The 6s finished up learning how to write a letter by taking a trip to the local post office and mailing their own hand written letters!  They were so excited they asked to do it every week!  Look out parents, you may have some full mailboxes soon!
 
8 Year Old Class
The 8-year-old class has been busy learning about fossils and how they are made. Then, we made our own fossils!
 
9 & 10Year Old Class
Exploring Trustworthiness with the 9 and 10 Year Olds

The Success Orientation for the month of November is Trustworthiness.

Last week, Mrs. Varney worked with the two elementary groups on determining what it means to be trustworthy. Using posters to accent the four tenants of Trustworthiness: Be Honest, Have Courage, Be a Good Friend and Be Reliable, Mrs. Varney had the students share their understanding of each phrase. Next, she read the story, The Wolf Who Cried Boy! and had the students break up into mixed age groups to write or draw an example of when they had witnessed or demonstrated the tenants of Trustworthiness.

To complete this valuable time, the students participated in a Trustworthiness Game called the Zipper Line. The students stood in two lines facing each other and held hands while one student ran through the line. As that one student ran, the other students needed to release their hands quickly so the student could pass without stopping. It really did require a lot of trust for both the runner and those holding hands and it was evident that the students really enjoyed both activities.

Thank you, Mrs. Varney!
