A New Office to Create Space for More Classrooms

A New Office to Create Space for More ClassroomsThe building just inside the Jingshan gate across the street from Parkside has been given a new look as it becomes home to the SIS Main Reception and offices.  Beginning next week, the Mountainside Main Office will begin to undergo renovation and be outfitted as classroom space.

We continue to search for a future opportunity to provide a self-contained, purpose built school facility but at this point there is nothing concrete on the horizon.  This means that we must maximize what we have, creating adequate instructional space in terms of both quality and capacity.

Toward this end, two major initiatives will begin to impact the school next week and through the summer.  One is the introduction of a large number of iPads and Mac laptops and desktops to provide leading edge technology for learning.  Articles in the WW will continue to inform the school community about progress in this exciting venture.

So, beginning next week, Sherry and Laurie will be in Reception in the new building along with Finance/Accounting and Human Resources and me. Drop in any time and then come check out the changes at Mountainside when you return in August.
