Triumph and Transformation: Reflecting on a Remarkable Year at SISC

Triumph and Transformation: Reflecting on a Remarkable Year at SISC

“We did it! The past academic year was our first full year back in Southville International School and Colleges (SISC) following the campus lockdowns, and we were able to overcome all challenges up to the end. We had lots of “catching up” to do after several years of reduced interactions and it has been delightful to see all students taking advantage of our full school programs from the Comprehensive Growth Series to Sport Intramurals to the Junior-Senior Prom and everything in between. The recent Graduation and Recognition Days were a truly celebratory and fitting way to end the school year!

So much has happened, so much has been restored, and so much energy abounds that it is hard to recall the doldrums of the previous years. I am hopeful that all students feel proud of everything that they were able to accomplish this year that helped them become an even better version of themselves. Whether you explored the wonders of literature, delved into the mysteries of numbers, or dived into the world of science, your thirst for knowledge has been inspiring and opened doors to new possibilities. You have also exemplified kindness and empathy, offering a helping hand and

displaying compassion in the classroom.

The school would be nothing without our dedicated teachers, and I thank each and every one of you for all that you do for our students. You have gone above and beyond expectations to ensure their academic growth, emotional well-being, and overall development. The learning you plan, the environment you create, and the relationships you foster are what make SISC truly exceptional. It was meant to be a comeback year and your passion for education made it happen. Together, we have navigated uncharted waters, and together, we have triumphed!

It has been wonderful to see home-school partnerships thriving again as pandemic restrictions ease. We have felt the parents and guardians’ constant and consistent commitment to maintaining a sense of structure and routine for our students in a year full of twists and turns. You have contributed in ways small, large, and unimaginable, and we look forward to our continued work together as we challenge ourselves and our students to set the highest standards and achieve the most ambitious goals. Thank you for choosing SISC to share in your children’s growth.

It has definitely been a team approach that has allowed our school community at SISC to maintain focus and flourish during this unprecedented period. 

It is so nice to finish the school year on campus and gives us hope and motivation for another great year ahead. As the curtain comes down on the academic year 2022-2023, let us carry forward the lessons we have learned, the bonds we have formed, and the memories we have created. We have been reminded as if we needed to be, how strong we are as a community, how capable our students are, and how creative we can be when we need to be.

Have a restful break and see you in September!”
