Week 42

International School of the Stockholm Region
On Friday, October 24th, UN-day will be
celebrated around the school. This day we will
celebrate that we are all Global Citizens.
MYP and DP students will listen to a lecturer
and then be divided up into mixed groups. They
will work on activities around the theme. After
school there will be a mingle for MYP and DP
students, run by CAS students.
The PYP students will prepare an assembly
around the same theme. The PYP classes will
need the support of parents to prepare and
organize an international lunch in each of the
classrooms. You will receive more information
from you homeroom teachers
Leave of Absence
On October 15th and 16th school ends at 12:00 for all
PYP and MYP students. Lunch will be provided that
day. Development conferences will take place in the
afternoons on both days. Students will attend the
conference together with the parents.
You will receive an email from school with
directions on how to sign up for conferences. The
sign-up will be online.
PYP parents will sign up for a time slot (20 min)
with the homeroom teachers. Single subject
teachers will also be available at school if you would
like to see them. Fritids will be open all afternoon. If
your child is in fritids, parents will have to collect
them to bring them to the conference.
MYP parents sign up for time slots with the subject
teachers they would like to see. Please bring a print
out of your times.
It is strongly discouraged to take children out of
school to travel. Families may take children out of
school for up to 2 school days due to travel/
vacation plans. Beyond the allotted 2 days only
special events (decennial birthdays, weddings, and
funerals) will be approved by the administration.
Traveling without approval from the administration
is at the responsibility of the parents and no work
will be prepared by the teachers.
