From the Athletic Director’s Desk

BAIS Family,

I am frequently humbled and impressed by the number of parents, teachers, and staff that invest into the lives of our students. Thank you for your continued involvement in and dedication to our BAIS community. We have been able to offer a variety of new after school activities because parents have helped connect us to outside club sponsors. A special thanks to those parents who have offered to lead new clubs, volunteered at the swim invitational, and played in our staff games.

Next week is our final week of season one after school activities and IISSAC soccer. Thanks to the sacrifice of many teachers and members of the community, we were able to offer twenty different extracurricular activities to our student body! Please consider leading a club/activity in the remaining second and third trimesters of this school year. The new trimester begins November 5 and we are excited about some of the clubs that will be available. Registration for season two and IISSAC basketball tryouts begins Tuesday, October 30. This coming Thursday morning our BAIS soccer players will leave for Bali to compete in the IISSAC Soccer Tournament. In Bali, BAIS will contend with five other schools, Friday through Sunday, and return to Bandung Sunday evening. When you see a BAIS soccer player, please encourage them and ask about their season. Our hope is that the students at BAIS not
only receive a quality education but also are provided a loving, supportive community where they can participate in a variety of new and exciting activities.

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

In Christ,
Mr. Justin Powers
