To further the Kerala building initiative, we in the High School Art Department are very excited to be selling calendars adorned with beautiful high school artwork for the cost of 40 aed per unit. If you are interested in purchasing one, copies are available as of today in Ms. Russell’s office and in the High School art room. They also make wonderful gifts and can fit easily into your suitcase.
Please support the Kerala Iniative
The CASE class is working to raise enough money to build two houses in Kerala. Kerala has been suffering due to intense floods from a very extreme monsoon season. This bake sale will help us raise more money for them!
Coffeehouse is this Thursday from 6:30-8:30!
Tickets on sale for 10 AED in the HS Courtyard.
We’re hoping to make Coffeehouse more sustainable this year, so bring your favorite coffee mug. It’s eco-friendly and much cuter to drink coffee out of your own mug.

Today during our morning break, the Viper Venture experience lists will be posted in the High School courtyard. As you remember, a few weeks ago we asked you to identify your top three preferences and since then, we have been working behind the scenes to finalize the experience lists. We were delighted to be able to honor students first and second choices. In cases where an experience was oversubscribed (that is there were more students interested than we had spaces available) priority was given to students in the higher grade levels. Please review the lists today and CONFIRM your participation in this experience with your parents before the end of the week. On Sunday, September 23 detailed information will be sent to you and your parents — which will include information about deposits. If you have any questions, please see Ms. Russell, Mr. Foss or Ms. Greene.
