Dear Parents:

Weekly Publication for Middle School Parents

ISSUE # 17
WEEK OF DECEMBER 07 TO 11, 2009

This Monday the Middle School will be celebrating Spirit Week. Each day has been assigned a specific theme and all students are encouraged to dress accordingly:

• • • • •

Monday – Pajama Day Tuesday – Crazy Hair Day Wednesday – Decade Day (dress up in 50’s, 60’s, 70’s etc. fashion) Thursday – Favorite Character day Friday – Free Dress Day

While we do want the students to enjoy the time out of uniform, please encourage your child to exercise sound judgment when choosing their attire so that they arrive at school dressed appropriately (no bare midriffs, spaghetti straps, baggy pants, etc.). If your child opts not to dress in the theme of the day, your child is expected to be in school uniform. To top off Spirit Week, the Student Council has organized the MS Party on December 11. Permission slips will be distributed to students through Homebase. In order to attend, your child must submit a signed permission slip and purchase a ticket. We encourage all students to attend and are looking forward to 100% participation. The party will be a great opportunity to spend time with friends, have some spirited fun and celebrate the end of the semester! On Tuesday, December 15 the PE Department has organized a Sports Day. Each student has been assigned to a house – Aklan, Baguio, Cebu, or Davao – and will have opportunities to participate in events throughout the day. All parents are invited to attend and cheer on their child. On Wednesday, December 16 students will be dismissed early at 12:00 noon. Please make the necessary transportation arrangements so that your child is picked up promptly at dismissal time. Sincerely, Danielle Fredericks Middle School Principal Clarissa Sayson Middle School Assistant Principal

Please donate your glossy magazines to PCF! WHY? Glossy Magazines cannot be pulped and recycled like regular clean paper here in Manila so if you don’t ensure that they’re made into something else… they just end up in a land fill. WHAT does PCF do with them? Parents of the school children are employed to make beads out of them which, in turn, get made into jewellery and bags. HOW does this help families? The money from the products generates income for them so that they can afford to buy food and clothes for their children. WHERE? Collection boxes can be found in ES, MS and HS offices Thank you for your support! "Dream the world you want and deserve to live in. Write it down. Communicate your vision passionately, as if your life depended upon it!" (Randy Hayes, Founder of Rainforest Action Network) www.ism-online.org/gogreen/
