- Parents' Association
Today marks the last day of a week-long celebration of appreciation for our faculty and staff who work tirelessly throughout the school year.
As a yearly tradition, our fantastic Hongqiao Parents and Friends Association (PAFA) schedule a week of events to celebrate the hard work and dedication of our staff.
A week-long celebration
Every day of the week, our faculty and staff were treated to a variety of sweet and timely treats, such as chocolate "tablets", bubble wrap stress relief remedy, and heartfelt hand-written thank you notes.
To wrap up a wonderful week, a collection of hand-picked gifts were prepared as mementos of the support from our parent community.
Along with the gift bags, a lucky draw was held with all faculty getting a chance to bring home some amazing prizes. Raffle winners received wines, gift cards, discount coupons, and lots more goodies!
Our generous community
We would like to express appreciation to the following SCIS community members for their generous donations:
- Michael Chan, PAFA Lower School Rep, owner of Skin City 5.5 Salons;
- New York Dental;
- Bryce Jenner, owner of Pistolera and Big Bamboo Restaurants;
- Oriflame Sweden;
- SCIS Korean Parents Association;
- Epermarket Online Grocery Store.
While traditionally, PAFA members have been able to visit our campus during the week to personally hand-deliver gifts, this year was a little different. Nonetheless, their presence was felt all week and we are ever-thankful for such a kind and caring community of parents.
"On behalf of the PAFA Executive Committee, I would like to wish you all a very happy Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week (TASAW)! Thank you all for the different ways in which each of you contribute to making our SCIS Community special! We hope to be back on campus to celebrate TASAW with our teachers and support staff next year!"
- Lisa Chu, PAFA President at SCIS Hongqiao.
