Dear Keystone and Kilittaşı Community,
Despite the cold face of December, preparing for the new year fills us all with hope for a better year. As Keystone and Kilittaşı schools, we are preparing for Winterfest, organized by PTO and our school on Sunday, December 17th.
Winterfest is one of the most beautiful events where we come together, enjoy our children's activities, shop for Christmas and New Year, indulge in various cuisines, and participate in multiple gift draws. This year, the event will start at 11:00 with our school choir, and all students assigned to the choir should be at school by 10:30 at the latest. We'd like to ask the students in charge to wear red and green outfits and Santa Claus hats. On this particular day, the responsibility of our students lies entirely with the parents. You may see the flow of the day below.
MEETING WITH THE SCHOOL PRESIDENTS
This week, we met with our school presidents and had the opportunity to discuss various topics. Firstly, middle and high school students expressed their desires regarding school spirit days. As of this week, we decided to separate elementary school spirit days from middle and high school. Middle and high school students will submit proposals to the school administration with different ideas suitable for their ages. Another important decision we made is for student representatives to take significant roles in school events. They will fulfill their first duties at today's PTO Winterfest meeting.
KEYSTONES PARTICIPATION IN THE INTERNATIONAL WOMEN OF ISTANBUL (IWI) WINTER BAZAAR
This Sunday, December 10th, our Keystone Student Ambassadors and Management team will attend the annual IWI Winter Bazaar at the Dedeman Hotel in Beşiktaş. The Bazaar is an opportunity for internationals to network and learn about what others are doing in Istanbul. We want to invite our whole community to come and experience an international bazaar and support our school as we showcase who our school is and what we offer our students and their future.
A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE ON THE WORLD OF SCIENCE WITH OUR 4TH GRADE STUDENTS.
Our 4th-grade students unleashed their inner scientists in the lab and discovered the wonders of science with Dr. İsa Kiyat, a senior Physicist. He spoke about his work with lasers and fibre optics.
INVITATION FROM WYNDHAM HOTEL, KALAMIŞ
We received a fabulous invitation from Wyndham Hotel located in Kalamış, Fenerbahçe. Our school choir will sing New Year songs in the hotel lobby at 1.00 pm on Friday, February 22. This is an excellent opportunity for our students to build self-confidence and get experience.
Due to the changes with the Ministry of Education, the exam dates have been slightly changed for our Killitaşı students. You can find the exam schedules for Killitaşı and Keystone attached.
