Welcome from Principal Presswood

Welcome to all of our new cub families and welcome back to all of our returning cubs families! Can you believe that summer is almost over and we are almost ready for a new school year? We are so honored that you have entrusted us to educate your child and prepare them for a bright future. I cannot wait to see all of our scholars smiling faces on the first day of school, Tuesday, August 16th.

Our devoted staff has gotten a head start on planning and preparing for your scholar. Our amazing office team is registering new families and we have order much needed school materials and supplies. Our custodial staff has been hard at work ensuring the school is clean and sanitized, ready to go for the first day.

This year our theme is "GOING FOR THE GOAL". We are planning for another incredible, productive year here at The International School At Salyers and we intend to reach all of our goals and beyond, making this our best year yet! We are excited to start year two of being an International-Global Studies school, which is going to help us shape our scholars into well rounded, globally competent individuals. In addition, we are excited to announce, our campus is one of eleven campuses that was selected to be a Blended Learning pilot school. Please read the information below to learn more about our Blended Learning initiative.

I am truly blessed to serve as the principal for the International School At Salyers and I am looking forward to seeing all of you soon! Enjoy the rest of your summer.

Welcome from Assistant Principal Willis

Dear Parents and Students,

On behalf of the International School at Salyers, I welcome you to the 2022-2023 school year. I am thrilled about having our scholars back after a relaxing and fun-filled summer! I also would like to extend a very special welcome to all of our new students and their families. I am confident that we will have a productive and successful year together! You can expect periodic newsletters from classroom teachers and myself to keep you informed about what is happening at our school. Please help us by effectively communicating with school staff and myself.

We are a Blended Learning campus this year, with a focus on Global Studies. We want to cultivate well rounded students in a positive and caring learning environment. That happens when parents, teachers, and students work together and we look forward to building positive parent-teacher/parent-student relationships.

We want to ensure all members of our school community feel welcomed and valued; therefore, we are excited to meet all of our parents/guardians and students at our Back to School Block Party on Friday, August 12th from 4:00pm – 6:00pm. Our desire is to provide the best education possible for each scholar and together diligently work as we are “Going for the Goal” to ensure a great school year!

Office Hours

For the convenience of our families, starting on Wednesday, July 27th we'll go back to full-time office hours 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Returning Student Registration

To get a jump start on the school year, please remember, we need all parents/guardians to complete the returning student registration beginning, Wednesday, July 27th. You will do this by logging in to the Home Access Center (HAC) and selecting Returning Student Registration. Please make sure your contact numbers, email address, and emergency contact information is correct. During the year we send important messages, newsletters, and flyers to your email and most importantly, we need a current phone number to contact you about your scholar. I look forward to seeing all of you soon!
