We were honored to have two extraordinary visitors here at WISE last week. They are representatives from San Francisco University and Arizona State University. As an international school, WISE has always aided students in acquiring the abilities necessary for academic success at any university and thriving in the modern, globalized society after graduation. We make every effort to give our students access to all resources for future planning, particularly concerning college admission. The offices of our principal and vice principal are always open to students.
Our elementary teachers at WISE create a variety of activities each month to ensure students have a rich school experience. Students still talk about our October crazy hair day. Regarding this month, students were invited to dress up in their best neon attire for Neon Day last Friday in our elementary building. The teachers used glow sticks to decorate the classrooms for the theme. Watching the students' creativity as they used the glow stick to make their own accessories is always pleasant. With their golden smiles, they had truly shined bright like a diamond.
We held a series of thanksgiving activities yesterday. Elementary students have a lot of fun during the day. The student council was assisting the game booths. The interaction between the student council and elementary students was so lovely. We also held a potluck party for elementary students. They share food and drink while enjoying games and movies with friends and teachers. For the thanksgiving feast this year, ‘International’ is our theme. The chef made us cuisines that represent different countries. We hope our international students and teachers enjoyed the meal.
Basketball is now all the rage as the former NBA player Dwight Howard came to Taiwan. WISE Basketball Team has always been one of the students' favorite school teams. Every time after class, students holding basketballs and learning from each other to improve their skills can be seen on the court.
Back to the 60s, midterm VAPA show.
There are multiple ways to celebrate Halloween. Such as carving a pumpkin, dressing up, or going trick or treating. Aside from all of the exciting events at WISE, our librarians have also provided our students with an unusual way to celebrate Halloween. One of the goals of our school is to introduce students to the world of reading and awaken their interest in books. with this, our library would like to introduce small Halloween-themed activities this month. One idea is to read a spook book and create your own poster.
This semester's PTC has also been split into two days: one for elementary students and one for middle and high school students. To share with parents, our teachers have prepared examples of students' schoolwork, relevant test scores, and observations of the student's class participation, academic work, and social growth. When the parents return home, they can still view their children's test scores and assignments via the school system.
Friday’s crazy hair day was a colorful blast of fun. We are always in awe of the creativity and effort. We want to thank all of the parents for their hard work and dedication. The kids all looked great, and their hairstyles were very creative. Can you spot your favorite hairstyle in the photos?
Education can change the world.
Earthquakes happen frequently in Taiwan. To avoid disaster when an earthquake strikes, we should all be prepared at any time. On National Disaster Prevention Day on September 21st, WISE conducted the earthquake drill for students from grade 1 to grade 12 in accordance with the government. Students had to follow the steps of Drop, Cover, and Hold On, and evacuate to the open space before aftershocks occur.
We hope that through this drill, students will be able to keep calm and make the correct decision when accidents happen.
