A big thank you to all the families that are hosng the vising musicians and to Marsha Hillman and Guime Odendaal for all their eorts in organizing a memorable experience for the students.

Next school year we are implemenng a Bring Your Own Device iniave for grades 7 and 8 and we would like to see all students bring a personal laptop to school. We have discussed this iniave on a few occasions in Parent Coee meengs since the start of the year and informaon is also available through the Middle School blog. Please re-view the informaon on the ISM Connect pages which can be accessed through the link hps://sites.google.com/a/ismanila.org/byod/home.
