Happy Fall Break!

Dear QSI Skopje Community,


It was an exciting week at QSI Skopje! Last Saturday, many of our families attended the Community Campout hosted by the PSG. It was a fun night of food, games, and family! Thank you to the PSG members who organized this event to help our community reconnect and re-engage.


We held the first Community Time assemblies today to celebrate the Success Orientations. Due to the weather, we had to split our students into two assemblies held in the gym. Thank you to the parents who attended via Zoom! We are grateful to have the capability to provide an opportunity for parents to attend events like this when it is not possible to include them on campus. During Community Time, we rolled out our new house system and students had the chance to earn points during a fun house game. After the break, students will learn how they can continue to earn points for their house throughout the year. Students are excited to work together with their class (house) in a fun, new way!


Fall Break is next week (October 11th-15th). We hope you get the chance to rest, relax, and recharge while enjoying your family. Everyone deserves a break after a successful first quintile!


Thanks,
Heather

IMPORTANT: Parent-Teacher Conferences

Parent-Teacher Conferences provide the mechanism for teachers to invite parents into their child’s educational process. These meetings allow teachers to update parents on academic progress and growth, strengths, and areas for improvement. In addition, conferences allow parents to ask questions and make suggestions about how the school can better support their child’s development. Parent-Teacher Conferences provide a valuable link between the classroom and home learning activities.


Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held on October 21st-22nd. Students will be dismissed at 12:00 and conferences will begin at 1:00.


Please schedule a time with your child's teachers using the links below. Parents are welcome to schedule a conference with any teacher they would like to meet with. If you have any questions, please contact your child's homeroom teacher.

10YOC Mathematics with Mr. Sherwood

It has been a blast understanding and practicing long division and multiplication in the 10YOC Mathematics class. We have been learning about decimals, place values, and a variety of other mathematical concepts. For review, the students created mathematics-inspired games that reinforced the long division and multiplication skills that we have been working on for our current unit. We all had a lot of fun playing the games once they were completed. I'm excited to see what new and imaginative creations these students will think of next!

PSG: Building Community

QSI Skopje recognizes that parent involvement is crucial for our student's success and the success of the school as a whole. It is because of this that the school leadership works to establish an active Parent Support Group (PSG). All QSI parents are encouraged to become actively involved with the school through the PSG. Through our PSG's monthly meetings, this dedicated group of parents works to support the school and build community. Our PSG works to make the learning environment at QSI Skopje the best possible place for children.
