Sign-up now through January 16. To register for this class and get other important information, log in to PowerSchool.

YOUR FEEDBACK - WE'RE LISTENING

In December we posted about our feedback form, which we created so you could give us your questions, comments, or feedback about anything at any time. Many of you have used this form already, and we are grateful for that. Remember, you can choose to leave your name on the form so we can contact you about your question or feedback, or you can remain anonymous. The form will remain open indefinitely on our WeChat menu and our website.

ELEMENTARY MAP TESTING

Next week, we will conduct MAP® (Measures of Academic Progress ®) testing for elementary students. We conduct MAP tests regularly throughout the year, and this mid-year test for Elementary will allow us to track students’ growth from the test taken earlier in the year. To learn more about MAP, please visit https://www.nwea.org/parent-toolkit/ or contact your child’s teacher.

CROSS FIT CLASSES FOR PARENTS

At WYIS we strive to create a healthy community for our students and their families. With that said, we are offering CrossFit classes for parents beginning Monday, January 14. Classes will be at 8am on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.

This fitness class is for anyone interested in becoming a little stronger, a little faster, and a little more fit. The class will be one hour long and will be led by a CrossFit certified coach. No previous exercise experience is required. What would cost over 1000 RMB a month is offered for free at WYIS’ CrossFit facility, located in the Athletics Building. If you are interested in attending, please contact Ben Wilson, Athletics Director.
