In STEM club the past few weeks we have been building bridges and learning about structural engineering. The students used balsa wood and glue to create structures that will try and support as much weight as possible. The bridges held 13.5, 14.5, and 21 kg!! of weight during the crushing. Great Job teams!
Located in the Parent Document of Sycamore is the letter that was sent out on Wechat during 29 January 2020 concerning changes to the 2nd semester due to the Wuhan Virus.
As it says in the last paragraph of the letter: it is a great time to remember the XIS Warrior spirit of this community that has helped our school in the past and will encourage us through this time. My hope is that we are able to offer encouragement to others around us in this difficult season. Our thoughts are with those who have been affected and we hope health and peace for all. We are very grateful for the understanding and commitment of our XIS community and family. We trust and hope each of you are rested and ready to join us in this new challenge. We look forward to seeing you on campus soon.
2nd semester classes will begin remotely online starting February 10th 2020. New families, please contact the office so we can connect you to the correct classroom teachers. Potential families, we will suspend new student testing until classes resume as normal. Returning families, please log into sycamore for further updates.
