Dear Families and Friends,
This month I feel compelled to highlight the very special nature of our international campus. No matter what is happening in the world around us, whatever pandemic hits or difficult political situations arise, our students are always there for each other. With over 30 different cultures on campus, our students have gained the incredibly important skill of making friendships without judgement - of supporting each other through the great times as well as the more difficult times.
A phrase that I use often with students is:
‘Surround yourself by people who only want to lift you higher.’
I am proud to see students lift each other higher on a daily basis. ES Academy and American School really is a very special place.
Please remember our first day back after the holidays (Tuesday 19 April) is our special excursion to Godò, for all 5th to 12th graders. Our younger Elementary students will have school as usual, and our teachers will be taking part in a professional development day.
Have a wonderful Spring Break everybody.
