Dear Incoming 6th Grade Families,

Welcome to International School! We are so excited to have you join our community and we are looking forward to meeting you. Each year, International School has a tradition of welcoming our incoming 6th grade students through our 5th Grade BBQ event. Keep in mind – it is not actually a BBQ, but often the lunch served is BBQ style and thus the name.

This year’s 5th Grade BBQ will be on Thursday June 9th from 11:15am – 12:45pm at International School. Your incoming 6th grade student will participate in getting to know you activities and tour the school with our high school student leaders while you learn more about International School and meet other parents.

Students will check in and meet their high school leaders in our Commons at 11:15am, get to know each other, have lunch, and tour the school. Parents/Guardians will meet in our Main Gym to learn more about International School, meet our administrators, then mix and mingle with each other and current PTSA members.

Soon, you’ll be receiving communication from your future middle school counselor, Arty Christianto, to RSVP and additional details for the event. This is an optional event and we realize that it is during the school day. There will be limited parking available onsite and information about parking options will be sent out closer to the event. We do encourage carpooling if at all possible.  For now, please save the date for our 5th Grade BBQ on Thursday June 9th at 11:15am.

Best wishes and we look forward to meeting you soon.
