Family Fun Day Carnival Plans - April 4
We are in the planning stages now of our big fundraising event - Family Fun Day Carnival at BEIS.
Parents should be contacting their classroom representative to plan a food booth to sell items to hungry students and parents as well as a game booth to help raise money for the school's technology goals. Teams of parents will provide different entertainment options for the whole family.
Teachers are working on the Talent Show, a hit from last year that we want to repeat again this year. Students are rehearsing their songs and dances in order to be seen by friends and family.
Pitch in to help make sure this day is another amazing event for BEIS families and the Boracay community!
As we start term 3, we are looking ahead. Students will be learning more about the EDSA revolution in their KP classes, and everyone is planning for the first week of March with Book Week - a chance to share our most treasured books and poems with the class and the whole school in an assembly. Most of the students are excited about Family Fun Beach Day on 14 February. This will be a day of games and BBQ to gear up for the big Family Fun Carnival in April.
Our students completed half the school year along with their exams in January. We celebrated both the 100th day of school and the Chinese New Year on 31 January with a BEIS Social/Sleepover event sponsored by our student council.
The BEIS Board is busy planning for next year already - looking at the possibilities of electronic textbooks for upper grades. The board approved the purchase of 15 new computers for our ICT Lab, and students are excited about the new educational software supplied by the vendor. We have also upgraded our WiFi at BEIS thanks to the funds raised by the PTA at United Nations Day. Our school is growing and we are making sure that our students have access to the latest technology as we grow. We are now looking at options for laptop computers, tablet computers, LCD projectors and eReaders for classroom use to make sure that our students and staff are familiar with using all kinds of technology in their learning and in their presentations.
February should be a good month with a fun Family Beach Day mid-month. Look for more information from your homeroom teachers about the event at Boracay Terraces Resort on 14 February. It will be a day of games and swimming and relaxing with friends and family.
Boracay experienced the edge of the "worst storm in human memory" according to some sources. We're back to business as usual, with an eye toward helping those locations in the Philippines who were not so fortunate as we were.
What an amazing month! United Nations Day and Animal Day were huge successes... you can see the photos of the events at the BEIS Student Newspaper Online - Koleksyon
We are preparing for our Term One Exams and our Parent-Teacher-Student conferences. Please check with your child's homeroom teacher to confirm your conference appointment before Wednesday, 23 October.
Our Student Council is also preparing for the first-ever BEIS Halloween Dance for grades 4-9 on 23 October. Permissions slips should be returned to homeroom teachers no later than Monday, 21 October, if you're going to attend this costume-themed holiday event.
We have just had a fun and successful Roald Dahl Day this week, and we're looking forward to the next two weeks of activities.
Our first-ever student newspaper, Koleksyon, has gone live. The students in grades 6-9 have been learning about journalism and online publishing in their ICT classes. The student news can be read by going to this link: Koleksyon.
On Friday, 27 September, we are holding our renamed "Animal Day" - a day of awareness about native animals, farm animals, our domestic dogs and cats, and other ways we can help out with animal welfare on the island and in the Philippines. We plan to have some guest speakers and some field trips, so be watching for teacher information about those plans.
We have moved our United Nations Day Celebration from 24 October to 4 October. We wanted our students to be able to enjoy the UN Day in advance of our end-of-term exams. Teachers have signed up for their class countries and should be sending home information about how you can participate. We will be holding the event at the Boracay Regency hotel, similar to years past. We will hold our parade along the white sand beach at 9:00am on the morning of 4 October and begin our showcase of student talent at 10:00am. A buffet lunch and bingo games will follow to round out the day.
