Star Kindergarten Visited The American School

On March 29, 2016, The American School (TAS) had the pleasure of hosting students from the Star Kindergarten to thecampus for a morning full of fun. The students had the opportunity to tour the campus, visit some classes, and enjoy a craft and snack time.

While visiting the library, students learned how to look for books and were quick to dive right into all the interesting picture stories we have on our shelves. In music class, Mr. Scott led the students in a boisterous song and dance. Then in physical education class, Ms. Dianne, with the help of some of our best TAS kindergarten students, taught everyone a new game called “Cross the Ocean”. The students had a blast “swimming” in the yard as fishes and sharks!

More than 60 students, teachers, and families came together to participate in the 19th annual Terry Fox Run in Ho Chi Minh City on November 29, 2015. “The Terry Fox Run is a non-competitive event where people get together as individuals, families, and groups to raise money for cancer research in Terry’s name. It is a day of celebrating Terry’s legacy and helping to keep alive his dream of finding a cure for cancer,” according to the official HCMC Terry Fox Run website. The American School (TAS) expanded it’s fundraising efforts this year by partnering as a registration site for the Thao Dien, District 2 area, and was able to host a wonderful presentation by the students of the Canadian International School System (CISS) on both elementary and middle-high school campuses for TAS students. According to CanCham’s website, the run was a huge success with “another overwhelming turnout with 99 companies and over 16,800 participants, and upwards of VND 1,000,000,000 raised toward cancer research in Vietnam.” It was a great five-kilometer run in the scenic Phu My Hung neighborhood, and many students brought their bicycles, skateboards, and roller blades to join in the fun. Thank you to the teachers and community service club, who helped organized the TAS spirit, for a meaningful cause in the city.
