From the Elementary Principal’s Desk
Today you will be receiving an email survey regarding our Language Arts program at BAIS. This survey is part of our curriculum review cycle. This year we are beginning a three year review of our Language Arts classes i.e. reading, writing, speaking, and listening. This first year is called the evaluation year. This is where we gather information on our strengths and areas of needed improvement within that subject. Next year is the examination year. We look at all the data and come up with an action plan on how to improve the program. This could involve purchasing new textbooks and resources. It could mean changing class schedules or offering different classes. It may even involve new training for the teachers. The third and final year of the review is the implementation year. This is the year we begin using the new resources, and we implement the new decisions that were put in place over the last two research years. Our ultimate goal is to continue to strengthen and improve our overall program at BAIS. The BAIS curriculum review cycle allows for ever subject to be reviewed within a 6 year rotation.
Now as we begin the review our Language Arts program, please take time to fill out the BAIS English Curriculum survey and give us feedback on the strengths and areas of needed improvement for this program.
Thank you so much for your help with this process.

One of the parents and team will perform a short traditional Indonesia dance, and will take the kids to go on parade with them. Please help the kids at home to make a small flag according to your nationality (a simple one, you can print at home, using a chopstick for the handle) and bring it to school for the parade.
