Welcome to the 2018-19 school year at AISB!

I am extremely happy to welcome you all to the 2018-19 school year at AISB. The school's numbers and program are growing steadily, the kids are glad to be back, and we're looking forward to a great year.  

We are happy to welcome 42 new students and 26 new families to our community, in addition to new members of our staff, who you can read more about below.

There are a number of important announcements and invitations in this month's newsletter so please take the opportunity to read through it.

Re-Accreditation Update
We are proud -- and relieved -- to announce that AISB’s Self-Study (all 230 pages of it, not counting supporting documents) is finished, and ready for submission to the Middle States Association. We are still awaiting final confirmation for the date of the Team Visit, but we expect to see a team of educators here with us sometime around the second week October. They’ll be looking forward to talking with all stakeholder groups -- you! -- as they build a clear and complete picture of our school.

We thank the many AISB parents and students who have contributed to this process, for your work in helping us to create the self-study and the objectives for growth, which provide AISB with a powerful vision for our next steps. You can view the student performance Objectives for reading and math here; our organizational capacity objective is there as well.

See you at school,
Brad Waugh
