Hello Middle School!,
Thanks to those of you that were able to tune in to this Wednesday’s “Let’s Chat” webinar. The Middle and High School administrators were joined by Sue Perez, our School Community Organization’s Communications (SCO) Officer and Garry Reichart, the SCO’s Middle School Chair. It was a great discussion around navigating learning, family, and routines during these uncertain times. Thanks to Sue and Garry for joining and sharing and thanks to the High School for continuing to share our 6-12 message of student and family support.
Parent – Student – Teacher conferences begin on Thursday 23rd and run through Wednesday 29th. We encourage you to use conferences as a time to celebrate your child’s accomplishments, hear about the concepts and skills they have been learning, ask questions, and set goals. Our teachers are looking forward to this opportunity to showcase what has been happening in their courses, listen, and offer support. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask by contacting Ms. Nhung our MS Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please take a moment to read the TinTuc entry from Daniel Cooper, our IB Middle Years (6-10) Programme Coordinator. Dan, in consultation with the IBO, has taken the lead in consolidating teacher agreements that will drive reporting and assessment for the remainder of the year. The purpose of Dan’s work has been to simply and clarify expectations – for all members of the UNIS Hanoi (MYP) school community.
In closing, we want to share with you what we’ve been reading as Distance Learning continues

Thank you for reading and for your continued support. Enjoy this film we made to thank and applaud your children!
Marc, JJ, and the MS Team
