Village School Voice - 20170407

Dear Village School Parents,

It was amazing to observe our students sharing their learning with their parents throughout the day. Students took great pride in confidently articulating their knowledge and understandings. There were wonderful opportunities for parents and students to participate in fun learning activities together. This was a great example of experiential learning at CI and having parents involved in this process has extremely positive benefits for the students.

Thank you parents, students and teachers for helping to make this an enriching experience for all.

Terry Fox Run at Chadwick International

Terry Fox was a Canadian who lost his right leg to cancer when he was only nineteen years old. Despite this life-changing loss he decided to take action by running more than 5,000 kilometers across Canada to raise money for cancer research. Starting in April 1980, he ran a marathon on one leg every day for 143 days. Sadly, Terry was unable to finish his run across Canada as the cancer spread to his lungs and he died in June, 1981 at the age of twenty two.

‚ÄčEvery year across Canada, and in dozens of countries around the world, Terry Fox Runs are held to raise money for cancer research, to honor those who lost their battle with cancer and those fighting cancer as well as to acknowledge Terry Fox's epic achievement. Chadwick International has the honor of hosting Incheon's first-ever Terry Fox Run on Sunday, 23 April. Registration will begin at 2pm and the run will be begin at 3pm.

Each CI student will be able to register up to four (4) family members for the run. Family members who are not the parents' of a CI student will have to sign a waiver form at registration. If the family member is under nineteen years old, a waiver will have to be signed by their parent. CI students will be given a registration form and donation sheet in the weeks prior to the run. The run will take place in and around the CI campus. There will be a 2.5 kilometer circuit for students Grade 3 and up and students in Grade 2 and below will be running on the track. Please read the important information below regarding parents' responsibility of their children during the event.

Class Placement for 2017/2018

Chadwick International Village takes class placement seriously and carefully considers not only students' academic needs but also their social emotional growth. Friendships and positive working relationships between students are considered as well as optimal learning environments. Administrators and teachers work together in this process. We strive to balance classes by gender to the extent possible and also consider social climate, peer relationships, and learning profiles. We are committed to doing what is in the best interests of the children, individually and collectively. We ask that parents not make specific requests for teachers. What appears to be a simple request is seldom a straightforward matter given all of the factors we consider in making placement decisions. It is important to understand that the ultimate decision about placement rests with the school. However, if you do have information that you feel would be helpful in the placement process, please communicate it to the classroom teacher and principal before May 1st.

Thank you.

Julian Taylor
Village School Principal
