The DAIS Student Council will be selling Valentine Grams to celebrate the holiday that everybody loves, Valentines Day. The Valentines Grams will be sold on February 5 to 12th during morning recess and after school. This year the Valentine Grams will either have pencils or candy included and will be delivered to that special someone on Wednesday, Feb.14th. The cost for each Valentine Gram will be 200 Tenge. Show that special someone that you care for them and help to support student council.
Please note that if students purchase Valentine Grams for someone outside the school (ie. mom/dad, little sister/brother) the Valentine will be delivered to the student for them to take home.
Student Council Dance – Feb 16th – 7:30-10:00pm
Students from grades 5-8 are invited to attend a dance party sponsored by DAIS Student Council. We are extending an invitation to QSI students to join in on the fun. Cost of admission will be KZT 1000 and pizza and soft drinks will be available. Please stay tuned for more information.
DAIS is beginning to feel whole again with only 6 children away today. This is so much better than a few days last week when we had 28 to 30 children away. The flu bug definitely made it’s way through our community impacting both children and adults. Happy to know that we are all on the mend.
We have a number of items on our calendar, but one in particular which we are super excited about is our upcoming Book Fair.
Mark your calendars as February 8th & 9th are Book Fair Days. Feb. 8th will focus on books for our Pre-K to Grade 3 students. February 9th books will be available for students from grade 4-8.
The Book Fair will be set up in the Lobby area and there will be enough books for each student to purchase 3 to 4 each. This is not a fund raiser, simply another way to put books in the hands of our young readers. The books have been shipped in from Scholastic in the USA and the collection includes books for all levels of readers within our school.
Please note that sales are USD cash only. Books will vary in price, but on average the price/book will be $7.99. Options for payment include sending funds with your child on the day of the sale or sending funds afterwards once the purchase is complete. Parents are welcome to accompany their child during the class’ scheduled time to assist with selection and payment, as a further option. Classroom teachers can share class visit times.
Finally, a tremendous thank you to Delana Chowdhary for leading out on this wonderful project.
The Student Council will be hosting the Fall Festival this year on Saturday, October 28th from 5:00pm to 6:00pm in the DAIS Gym. Everyone is invited, so dig out your favorite costume and plan to join us for some Halloween fun. Admission fee is 2000 Tenge. The Fall Festival is open to children of all ages. Trick or Treating will follow the Fall Festival beginning at 6:30pm and will end at 8:00 pm.
As an added bonus to our Student Council game booths, a group of parents have offered to organize a bouncy castle, maze challenge and additional Halloween activities for children PreK-Grade 2 in the Gym. After the Festival, students in grades 3-8 will have the opportunity to make their way through a Haunted Dostyk House, if they dare. The Haunted House, which will be set up in a separate location is being planned and overseen by parents. The Haunted House invites students from grade 3-5 between 6:00-6:30pm and grade 6-8 students from 6:30 –7:00pm. We wonder who will have more fun, the organizers or the participants?
Finally, if you would like to participate and have children Trick-or-Treat at your house, please place a pumpkin in your GARAGE window and leave a light on. You can find copies of the pumpkin at the Liaison Desk.
