Dear Elementary Families,
As we sign off for the summer, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our entire community – together we have weathered an enormous storm, and kept our students’ learning, wellbeing and safety at the centre of every decision, every day.
To our students – thank you for making us smile every single day this year! Each and every one of you are the reason that our school exists, and the reason your teachers come to work every day. You have shown strength and perseverance this year and we’ve made some wonderful memories together. Thank you for your beautiful singing yesterday as we celebrate the passing of another year.
To our parents – thank you for your partnership, your understanding and your grace through the rollercoaster ride of school closure and Distance Learning. This was the year for us all to lean into our value of ‘community’ and really dig deep with our home-school partnership. Together, we have ensured a strong year of learning for your children.
To our teachers – thank you for your tireless dedication to your students. For collaborating on and creating an entire Distance Learning platform in under 24 hours, which we refined and improved every single week. For engaging with your students and their families around the world and ensuring that learning could continue despite all of our challenges.
To our Elementary leadership team – for solutions, support, systems thinking, strategic visioning, and laughter.
I am so grateful to be part of this dynamic, resilient community. We look forward to welcoming you all back in August. For those leaving us, we are so glad to have shared part of your journey with you – thanks for stopping a while at UNIS Hanoi – you leave us as part of our Phoenix family.
