Issue 23: February 14, 2020


From the Athletic Director

BAIS Family,

“To thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.”

Shakespeare

My grandmother quoted lines of Shakespeare to my sister and I when we were young. Honestly, at the time I rarely understood the context or meaning behind her sporadic monologues. Now I am looking forward at my to-do list and the line ‘and it must follow, as the night the day’ sprang from the hollow caverns of my brain to the forefront of my memory. Seasons change, time marches on. February 23rd marks the end of this year’s basketball season and the second trimester of after school clubs/activities. And as the night follows the day, season three is right around the corner. I am habitually humbled and impressed by BAIS parents, students, teachers, and staff that invest so much time and energy into the lives of our students and community. Thank you for your continued involvement in and dedication to our school. I recognize that we have been able to offer many different after school activities because of our parents’ willingness to volunteer and make connections to outside club sponsors. A special thanks to those that have offered to lead new clubs, volunteer at school events, play in staff games, or have come out to cheer as fans.

On Thursday our basketball teams will leave for Surabaya for this year’s IISSAC basketball tournament. Our boys got second place in the local Bandung Activities Conference (BAC). We look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of both our IISSAC teams. BAIS is an amazing family to have been adopted into. I appreciate the opportunity we have to go to Surabaya and represent ourselves, our school, our community, and God. I am grateful that our students continually do an admirable job at representing who and what BAIS is. If you see a BAIS basketball player this week, please encourage them and ask about their season. Our hope is that the students at BAIS not only receive a quality education but are also provided with a loving, supportive community where they can participate in a variety of new and exciting activities. Our students are impressive young men and women. My prayer for them is that they seek to be their true self while they are in the safe of BAIS. Our seniors will graduate at the end of this third season (of sports/clubs). I know the transition into life post-high school will be difficult and scary and rewarding… a tsunami of new emotions and experiences are inevitable. My prayer is that their time at BAIS helps them know their true identity as a son or daughter of God and they live a life false to no man.

Thank you for being a part of our BAIS family and all you do to contribute to its success.

Sincerely,
Mr. Justin Powers

School Clinic Info

This week and last we have seen several students with upper respiratory symptoms and fevers. As per the parent student handbook, students will be sent home if any of the symptoms/diseases listed are present (“determining Illness” and “sending a student home”). Check your child(ren) daily for any fever before they leave for school. Please take the following actions to protect yourself and others:

  1. Try to avoid close contact with sick people.
  2. Wear a mask if you have a cough or runny nose.
  3. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.
  4. Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
  5. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs spread this way.
  6. Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.

Together we can stop spreading the germs!

Thank you,
Dr. Mayke Rosalina
School Doctor
