Hello Middle School!
Amazing! Here we are on the last day of school. What a complete blessing to have had our students back on campus for these past weeks. They showed incredible resilience and determination during Distance Learning and came back motivated to ensure that they were in stride with our Learning Outcomes and Grade Level Expectations. Our reports were sent via the Veracross Parent Portal yesterday. We hope you take some time to cover the report with your student and to celebrate the learning that has occurred this year. We are very happy with the growth and results that our students have exhibited. Congratulations!
For those students taking advantage of the Summer Programme, the weeks ahead look to be full of fantastic experiences and fun. We thank all of our Middle School teachers that have stepped forward to be part of this community building program and our Co-Curricular Office for helping to organize it. Please encourage your students to read for pleasure over the summer. Research clearly shows that Middle School student brains benefit from reading, both academically and on a social and emotional note. Encourage reading in both home language and the language of acquisition.
The Vermeires are leaving the school at the end of July, and my family and I want to thank the students, parents, teachers, faculty and the wonderful Vietnamese Staff here at UNIS Hanoi for 7 years of support. It has been a great experience for us to be part of the school, Hanoi, and Vietnam.
Have a great summer and see you around!
