It was wonderful seeing so many of our parents at Back to School Nights across all of our campuses. The evening is a great first step towards developing the home-school relationship with educators to help ensure a successful year.

Administrators and teachers were on hand in their classrooms to meet the parents of our community and discuss their expectations for the coming school year. Back to School Night is a great opportunity to learn about what’s happening in the classroom and the great work and curriculum that are being implemented at SCIS.

Becoming involved in children’s education at school and in the community is a proven way to improve a student’s achievement, motivation, and well-being.

“Whether it is through attending one of the many learning celebrations that will occur during the school year or simply discussing learning experiences at the dinner table; the research on the positive and long-term impact of parent involvement in schooling cannot go unnoticed, ” comments Liz Gale, Lower School Principal at SCIS Pudong.

Throughout the school year, there are many other ways that parents can get involved, and we encourage our families to stay connected and excited about their child’s learning.

We look forward to an exciting and eventful academic year ahead, and many more opportunities to cultivate parental involvement.
