Winter Season: Thank you to all of the students who tried out for basketball or swimming. We are processing the team lists sent in by the coaches and parents will receive a welcome email and online contract very soon.

Thank you Middle School Parents!


On behalf of all of us in the Middle School, we would like to thank you for providing us with an amazing breakfast/day-long feast on Tuesday. We are truly grateful for your generosity and thoughtfulness, not to mention your cooking and baking abilities!

We hope parents can join us for the next High School Parent Coffee on December 14 starting at 8:30 AM in the faculty lounge. Our counselors will continue from our last coffee by presenting additional information on the college application process all AIS students have access to, and our technology facilitator will present specific strategies for managing children’s use of social media.

As we approach the end of the semester there are a number of holidays that hopefully allow students to spend extra time with their families. We do ask that parents keep in mind the benefits of students attending their regularly scheduled classes, the challenges of making up missed work should families extend their holidays, and the school’s attendance policy. We truly appreciate parents prioritizing their child’s attendance at school.

Jarret Lambie, High School Principal
