MAP Assessments Continue

Our Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) assessments will continue next week for CM1 and CM2 the week of November 9th. Testing will primarily take place during morning blocks and students will have flexible testing time and the opportunity to make-up tests in case of absences. Please ensure that your child eats well and gets plenty of rest so that they are ready to do their best.


Merci d’être venu ! ¡Gracias por haber venido!

Thank you to our amazing AIS parents and guardians for your attendance at this year’s virtual PTCs—another first for our community! We hope you appreciated this opportunity to connect with your children’s teachers so that we can continue to work in partnership to support our eager AIS learners. Our next set of PTCs are scheduled to take place in April of 2021. We look forward to seeing you then!


Middle School Swap Day-Wed, 11/11

Next Wednesday, November 11th, we will be having a special Swap Day in order for our CM2 students to discover our AIS middle school! That's right, our middle school students will be engaged in learning with the CM2 teaching team while our CM2 students head to middle school! We look forward to the exchange.


Virtual Middle School Night-Thur., 11/12 4:30-6:00 New Time

After the Swap Day, we invite our CM1 & CM2 families to join us for a virtual Middle School evening to get more information about our program and meet the Middle School teaching team.


International Week-11/16-11/20

Are you ready to learn about the Ivory Coast, Dominican Republic, Portugal, Demark, Poland, Ethiopia, and more? We certainly are! We are excited to celebrate International Week at AIS the week before the Thanksgiving Break. Students will study different countries and will exchange their learning experiences with other classes. While we cannot host our typical community potluck, we look forward to showcasing our students’ work with you through our International Week Padlet! Stay tuned for more information from your child's teaching team.
