Head of School Welcome

Dear Parents and Friends,
I’m excited to welcome all of you the 2017-2018 school year at SCIS-Pudong. This letter contains important information and contact details to help you prepare for the beginning of the school year.
Our new and returning faculty have returned from summer holiday and are preparing tirelessly to welcome students back to school. Our Board of Directors has supported our plans to increase our staffing for the year. Our enrollment numbers are still fluid, but we’ve remained relatively stable and anticipate opening with approximately 330 students. In short, we have some additional faculty members to better support our students’ experience.
I hope all of you had a wonderful summer.  I look forward to our year together and seeing you on campus very soon. 
Please see below for some key dates, times, and information.

This Friday, June 16 is our final day of school for the current school year and will include two significant annual upper school events: International Breakfast & Awards Assembly. 

We’d like to invite all upper school parents to join us for these events as we celebrate the end of another fantastic school year at SCIS-Pudong.

  • International Breakfast – 8:30am: Upper school students will bring dishes from their home countries and cultures to share with their grade level classmates. 
  • End-of-Year Awards Assembly – 10:00am:  Join us as we recognize students with academic and achievement awards and say farewell to our departing students and faculty. The assembly will also feature musical performances from students, and special guests you won’t want to miss!

A reminder that Friday is a half-day for students and after the assembly they will be dismissed with buses leaving at 11:30am. Students that are going home with parents and not taking the school bus must follow regular check-out procedures with the main office.


We look forward to seeing you all on Friday!
