Once a Gecko, Always a Gecko!

Congratulations Seniors!

BY: HATSUKO BEARDEN(12)

The school year has come to an end and the senior class of Saipan International
School are up and ready to continue their journey to a new life. The dreams to
become civil servants, business owners, engineers, teachers, architects, etc. are
slowly becoming a reality for many of the students. College is a big step to
achieving these dreams and the majority, if not all, of the senior students have
decided on what college/university they will attend. Please Congratulate the
students who have been admitted to their colleges.

Colleges come in many shapes and sizes, populated with multiple different
ethnic groups. As the senior class enters a new world and new environment,
they will learn a whole new different aspect in life. Already having plans for
the future and already decided on a college, the seniors are up and ready to
become adults.

Pennies for Peace

The 8th Grade Class, in partnership with the Central Asia Institute, have culminated today the
Pennies for Peace Program in commemoration of World Diversity Day. The Pennies for Peace
Program encourages any individual or group of individuals in building peace, one penny at a time.
The proceeds of the collected pennies from our school will help the literacy program for children
caught in the middle of the war zone in Middle East. Thank you #sisgeckos for your generosity.

Educational Tax Credit(ETC)

คุณ ขอบคุณ

Si Yu’us ma’ase

ETC’s are very important to us. If you own a business on
Saipan, you have an opportunity to directly help any school
on the island through Public Law 10-73. Please consider
giving your ETC to SIS to help purchase new books,
materials and technology for our students. It is a simple three step process:
1. Write a check to SIS between $10 and $5,000.
2. SIS will give you a receipt.
3. Attach the receipt to your monthly or yearly tax return.
SIS is one of only a few schools on Saipan that operate without regular
funding from a religious or corporate organization. Please help continue the
SIS tradition of excellence in education. Donate if you can or kindly help
spread the word about ETC donations to friends with businesses. Please
contact the office should if you need more information. We have ETC
information packets in English, Korean, Japanese, Chinese or Russian.
