Dear Parents:
Thank you to all the families who have contributed in some way to the school’s eorts to support vicms of Typhoon Yolanda. Be it through the purchase of a specially designed t
shirt or pin or through monetary donaon, all is appreciated. This week we were extremely fortunate to have Dr. Virginia Rojas on cam-pus. Dr. Rojas engaged our teachers in thoughul dialogues about eecve language instrucon and supporng English language learners. She com-mended the school in a number of areas related to English language instruc-on and also made recommendaons. Over the course of the coming months, we will review those recommendaons and work toward strength-ening our language instrucon.
MAP (Measure of Academic Progress) test results were sent home this week with your child through Advisory. Please keep in mind that the test results are a snapshot in me of your child’s progress. If you have any quesons about the results or want a fuller picture of your child’s progress and level of achievement, please contact your child’s English or Math teacher for infor-maon.
Tomorrow, November 16 is the PTA Family Fun Day Carnival. This event is one of the most ancipated of the year and will take place from 1:00 – 6:00 P.M. It sounds like it will be a grand me with acvies and games available for all ages. We hope to see you at the Carnival! Next week, the PTA will also hold the New Book Sale in the FAT lobby from November 18 – 22. On Thursday, November 21 we are hosng a Middle School Parent Coee in the Lile Theater beginning at 7:45 A.M. We will provide updates on the school
wide goal of assessment, the Bring Your Own Device iniave and the Advi-sory program. Please join us if you are available.
Have a resul weekend!
Yours in Educaon,

Campus Card Update: Seng up Individual Accounts v.s. Family Account
As you may know, for all those using the Campus Card, money that is loaded onto the individual cards are stored inially in your family account. We have been able to work with the developer of the program to allow students to have individual accounts, this will allow students to manage their own accounts and not be connected to another sibling. Please do keep in mind that this will require individual login’s and individual loading of cards. Should you prefer this sort of set up for your family kindly let us know on or before December 15, 2013 so this can be set up in the system and be ready by January 6, 2014. To request, please send an email to cam-puscard@ismanila.org.
With an individual account, parents with campus cards will be aached to the young-est child's account. Once this is set up, any remaining fund balance will be retained in the youngest child's account, therefore you will need to top up the other children's accounts so they can connue using the campus card. Please also keep in mind that all purchase history prior to the change will be listed under your youngest child in campus card reports.
A nocaon will be sent to your email once the individual accounts have been set up with the new log
in details.
The Campus Card Kiosk is now accepting dona- tions for the Disaster Relief Fund. Students and staff holding campus cards with cash can now do-nate with a touch of just a couple of buttons. Every little bit helps and we hope that each and every one of us can do away with that extra doughnut or cof-fee during the day and donate to the fund instead.
