Dear Students:

Are you looking for some good books to add to your collection? The PTA New Book Fair will take place everyday this week in
the FAT Lobby. Stop by to get a good book. During the MS Assembly we will have a guest speaker, Amado Angelo
Rodriguez Lacuesta (a.k.a. Sarge Lacuesta), who will talk to us on the topic What Inspired Me to Be a Writer. Mr. Lacuesta is
a Filipino writer and winner of several awards for his short stories, including the Philippine Graphic Award, the Palanca
Memorial Award and the NVM Gonzalez Awards. We look forward to welcoming Mr. Lacuesta to ISM. The PTA has also
planned a book trivia contest so be prepared to answer some questions.

There is a K-12 Dance Recital this Saturday, November 21 at 3:00 P.M. in the FAT. Come to see the amazing talent we have
here at ISM.

Remember to recycle your waste and keep our Middle School clean. It is much more pleasant to study in a clean environment
and shows responsibility for our surroundings.

Do you like rugby? There will be some exciting international games on the HS field after school on Tuesday, November 17
and Thursday, November 19. This is a good chance to see some talented competition. See the schedule for more details
