For your calendar: Handshaking Ceremony

Parent participation is not required, though it is a beautiful TIS tradition if you can come by to watch. We do need a few parent volunteers for each class - please let your teacher know if you can help.

The Handshaking Ceremony will take place Friday September 13

  • 9am for Arthur Street classes in the Arthur Street playground
  • 10:25am for all main campus classes in the main campus playground

In this ceremony, all teachers/staff members line up like a receiving line in the playground (for the main campus it's the lower playground). Classes line up with parent volunteers in the upper playground. In one long line they file down and, student-by-student, walk through the receiving line so every student is welcomed to our new school year by every staff member
