End of Year Picnic and Thank You Jacques Weber Celebration!
Friday, June 2nd, 4:30pm - 7:30pm
The PTO invites you to the annual AIS's end-of-year picnic and a farewell celebration for our Head of School, Jacques Weber. There will be food trucks and sweets, as well as music and other entertainment. Bring your lawn game and chairs to celebrate the end of the 2022/2023 school year. It would be appreciated if you would help us get an estimate of attendees for the food vendors by signing up. Looking forward to the fun and games.
From the 8th Graders - Alumni Day
SAVE THE DATE!!!!!!!!! Hello everyone, we are throwing an AIS Alumni Day! This day is for past 8th grade graduates to hang out with old friends and classmates, and celebrate graduation! We plan on having our past 8th grade graduates celebrate their memory by putting their handprint on a special ‘memory bench’, so they will always be remembered! This 8th grade ceremony will be at 5 PM on the 24th of May, 2023 Afterward, any past AIS alumni students are invited at 6pm on the 24th of May, 2023, for drinks, food and music! Right after the 8th grade celebration.
We hope that any past AIS alumni can make it to this party, but if you can't, we would love to hear news from you (where you go to school, when you graduated, etc). We also hope that our graduating seniors of high school (the CM2 class of 2018-2019) will be able to come and celebrate with us their accomplishments from all their years in AIS and their high schools.

Creating Spaces for Belonging in Schools Through Courageous Leadership
By Ariane Baer-Harper
We are excited to share this article written by our HOS Elect and published by The International Educator. Closing sentence- As school leaders, we have a responsibility to regularly question what school culture we are creating and making a reality for others, and we need to ensure that everyone under our care feels safe, seen, and heard.
