Handshaking Ceremony - see in person or on livestream!

The nth annual TIS Handshaking Ceremony is a heartwarming tradition where students are welcomed to the new school year by shaking hands with teachers & admin staff members.

Come see it in person or watch it live-streamed at www.ustream.tv/channel/intlschool. Use the 2011-2012 All-Parent Password (on the back of the blue Parent Survival Card you received this summer, used for registration).

It's Friday, Sept 16:

  • LowK through 5th grade at 9am (for an hour or so, youngest to oldest) on Sherman Street

  • PreK at about 10:30am (for about 15-30 minutes) in the playground

Volunteer? If you are planning to attend in person and can help usher the children through the line, please tell the teacher early this week.
