BHIS Family Bulletin – Friday September 17th  

English | 中文版本 | Español

Dear BHIS Families, we are in full swing of school. Teachers and students are continuing to establish routines and procedures, as well as build relationships. Ask your child to share a routine they have recently learned and or practiced. We are also continuing to prioritize Social Emotional Learning, by talking about our feelings and having community circles during class. We will continue these important skills as students dive into content and engage in academic routines.

Remember we are promoting our “Healthy Schools” campaign. If your child has been exposed to someone with COVID-19 or has any of the following new symptoms, (not caused by other conditions) please keep them home:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Sore Throat
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Diarrhea
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Difficulty breathing

As our district continues to partner with the Department of Health, our guidance is constantly changing. Our current guidance requires all students that are sent to the Protected Health Care room (for any symptoms), will need to have a negative COVID test to return to school. BHIS can administer COVID testing at this time. If you have questions, please give Nurse Jenny a call.

Boletín Familiar de BHIS –  Viernes 17 de septiembre

Estimadas familias de BHIS, estamos en pleno apogeo de año escolar. Los maestros y estudiantes continúan estableciendo rutinas y procedimientos, así como también construyendo relaciones interpersonales. Pídale a su hijo que le comparta una rutina que haya aprendido o practicado recientemente. También seguimos dando prioridad al aprendizaje socioemocional, hablando de nuestros sentimientos y teniendo círculos comunitarios durante la clase. Continuaremos con estas importantes habilidades a medida que los estudiantes se sumerjan en el contenido y se involucren en rutinas académicas.

Recuerde que estamos promoviendo nuestra campaña “Escuelas saludables”. Si su hijo ha estado expuesto a alguien con COVID-19 o tiene alguno de los siguientes síntomas (no causado por otras afecciones), manténgalo en casa:

  • Fiebre o escalofríos
  • Tos
  • Fatiga
  • Dolor de cabeza
  • Dolor de garganta
  • Náuseas o vómitos
  • Congestión o secreción nasal
  • Diarrea

A medida que nuestro distrito continúa asociándose con el Departamento de Salud, nuestra orientación cambia constantemente. Nuestra guía actual requiere que todos los estudiantes que sean enviados a la sala de Protección y Atención Médica (por cualquier síntoma) deberán tener una prueba de COVID negativa para regresar a la escuela. BHIS puede administrar pruebas de COVID en este momento. Si tiene preguntas, por favor llame a la enfermera Jenny Osborne.

Boletín Familiar de BHIS – Viernes 10 de septiembre

Estimadas familias de BHIS, hemos disfrutado conocer a sus hijas (os) durante la primera semana de clases. Los estudiantes estaban emocionados de regresar a las aulas y poder ver a sus compañeros. Los maestros en el salón de clases involucraron a los estudiantes en una variedad de actividades para familiarizarse con ellos y trabajaron para enseñar a los estudiantes los procedimientos y rutinas en la escuela. Por favor asegúrese de hablar con sus hijos sobre ello.

Esta semana daremos la bienvenida a nuestros estudiantes de kindergarten a nuestra escuela. Hubiéramos deseado que sus familias pudiesen acompañarlos adentro de la escuela y conocer sus aulas, pero los protocolos de COVID no lo permiten. Tenga en cuenta que tenemos personal de apoyo esparcido en toda nuestra escuela para apoyar la transición de nuestros alumnos de kínder sin ningún contratiempo.

Recuerde que estamos promoviendo nuestra campaña “Escuelas saludables”. Si su hijo ha estado expuesto a alguien con COVID-19 o tiene alguno de los siguientes síntomas (no causado por otras afecciones), manténgalo en casa:

  • Fiebre o escalofríos
  • Tos
  • Fatiga
  • Dolor de cabeza
  • Dolor de garganta
  • Náuseas o vómitos
  • Congestión o secreción nasal.
  • Diarrea
  • Pérdida del gusto u olfato
  • Dolores musculares o corporales
  • Dificultad al respirar

2021 Back-to-School Family Information Night Q&A

On Thursday, August 26, BHIS had a Back-to-School Virtual Family Event.

Topics included: Start of school information, health and safety protocols and procedures, arrival and dismissal procedures, breakfast and lunch procedures, important upcoming dates, and Q & A.

Launch Needs More Teachers!

Launch, the afterschool care provider located at BHIS, needs to hire 2-3 more staff to serve all of the BHIS students who need aftercare. Launch is currently running a waitlist because of lack of staff. Please share these job postings with your network.

Launch has committed to the following incentives in order to attract more candidates, including: $19/hour base pay, monthly health stipend, ORCA cards, a hiring bonus up to $500, paid week off between December 27th-31st, 2021, and 401(k) participation.

Launch teachers are valued members of the BHIS community, so let’s help them find some great folks!

We urgently need a family to host a Guest Teacher!

As many of you know (or remember), the Spanish Immersion classrooms at BHIS rely heavily on Amity Guest teachers from Spanish speaking countries to support the immersion classrooms. The guest teachers provide support in running small group instruction as well as many other tasks to support Spanish Immersion classrooms and the overall BHIS community. They are a vital part of the learning process at BHIS.

As a host family, you would need to provide a room, breakfast, and dinner. School lunch is included as one of their meals. Hosting a guest teacher is a great opportunity to continue to strengthen your families’ Spanish as well as an exchange in cultures. The minimum commitment requirement is 3-months; however, you can choose to extend that after the 3 months if you wish.

If we do not have a placement by August 23rd, our guest teacher will not be able to work at Beacon Hill International School and we would miss out on this great opportunity. We recognize that it is a challenging time to take on this commitment, but the BHIS staff and students would greatly appreciate it. Having a guest teacher in our classrooms makes a tremendous difference for both teachers and students.

If you are interested or have any questions, please feel free to e-mail Guiomar Rodriguez (2/3 Spanish Immersion Teacher) or Maria Guzman (4/5 Spanish Immersion Teacher).

¡Necesitamos urgentemente una familia anfitriona para uno de nuestros maestros!

Como muchos de ustedes saben (o recuerdan), las aulas de inmersión en español en BHIS dependen en gran medida de los maestros de Amity Guest de países de habla hispana para apoyar las aulas de inmersión. Los maestros invitados brindan apoyo en la ejecución de la instrucción en grupos pequeños, así como muchas otras tareas para apoyar los salones de clases de inmersión en español y la comunidad BHIS en general. Son una parte vital del proceso de aprendizaje en BHIS.

Este año continuaremos con el programa de maestros invitados de Amity, pero necesitamos urgentemente una familia anfitriona para uno de nuestros maestros Stiven de Colombia. Como familia anfitriona, deberá proporcionar una habitación, desayuno y cena. El almuerzo escolar está incluido como una de sus comidas. Tener un profesor invitado es una gran oportunidad para continuar fortaleciendo el español de sus familias, así como un intercambio de culturas. El requisito mínimo de compromiso es de 3 meses; sin embargo, puede optar por extenderlo después de los 3 meses si lo desea.

Si no tenemos una ubicación para él antes del 23 de agosto, no podrá trabajar en Beacon Hill Int’l y perderíamos esta gran oportunidad. Reconocemos que es un momento desafiante para asumir este compromiso, pero el personal y los estudiantes de BHIS lo agradecerían enormemente. Tener un maestro invitado en nuestras aulas hace una gran diferencia tanto para los maestros como para los estudiantes.

Si está interesado o tiene alguna pregunta, no dude en enviar un correo electrónico a Guiomar Rodríguez (maestra de inmersión en español de 2/3) o María Guzmán (maestra de inmersión en español de 4/5).

我们迫切需要一位来自哥伦比亚的 老师的寄宿家庭

你们中的许多人都知道(或记得),BHIS 的西班牙语沉浸式课堂严重依赖来自西班牙语国家的 Amity 客座教师来支持沉浸式课堂。客座教师在开展小组教学以及许多其他任务方面提供支持,以支持西班牙沉浸式课堂和整个 BHIS 社区。它们是 BHIS 学习过程的重要组成部分。

作为寄宿家庭,您需要提供房间、早餐和晚餐。学校午餐是他们的一餐。接待客座老师是一个很好的机会,可以继续加强您家人的西班牙语以及文化交流。最低承诺要求是3个月;但是,如果您愿意,您可以选择在 3 个月后延长该期限。

如果我们在 8 月 23 日之前没有为他提供安置路,他将无法在 Beacon Hill Int’l 工作,我们将错过这个绝佳机会。我们认识到承担这一承诺是一个具有挑战性的时刻,但 BHIS 的工作人员和学生将不胜感激。在我们的教室里有一位客座老师对老师和学生都有很大的不同。

如果您有兴趣或有任何疑问,请随时发送电子邮件至 Guiomar Rodriguez(2/3 西班牙语沉浸式教师)或 Maria Guzman(4/5 西班牙语沉浸式教师)。

Chúng tôi đang rất cần một gia đình bản xứ cho một trong những giáo viên khách

Như nhiều người trong số các bạn đã biết (hoặc còn nhớ), các lớp học Hòa nhập tiếng Tây Ban Nha tại BHIS chủ yếu dựa vào các giáo viên Amity Guest đến từ các quốc gia nói tiếng Tây Ban Nha để hỗ trợ các lớp học ngâm mình. Các giáo viên khách mời hỗ trợ trong việc hướng dẫn nhóm nhỏ cũng như nhiều nhiệm vụ khác để hỗ trợ các lớp học Hòa nhập Tây Ban Nha và cộng đồng BHIS nói chung. Chúng là một phần quan trọng trong quá trình học tập tại BHIS.

Là một gia đình chủ nhà, bạn sẽ cần phải cung cấp phòng, bữa sáng và bữa tối. Bữa trưa ở trường được bao gồm như một trong những bữa ăn của họ. Tổ chức một giáo viên khách mời là một cơ hội tuyệt vời để tiếp tục củng cố tiếng Tây Ban Nha của gia đình bạn cũng như giao lưu giữa các nền văn hóa. Yêu cầu cam kết tối thiểu là 3 tháng; tuy nhiên, bạn có thể chọn gia hạn sau 3 tháng nếu muốn.

Nếu chúng tôi không có vị trí cho anh ấy trước ngày 23 tháng 8 rd , anh ấy sẽ không thể làm việc tại Beacon Hill Int’l và chúng tôi sẽ bỏ lỡ cơ hội tuyệt vời này. Chúng tôi nhận thấy rằng đó là một thời gian đầy thử thách để thực hiện cam kết này, nhưng các nhân viên và học sinh của BHIS sẽ đánh giá rất cao nó. Có một giáo viên khách trong lớp học của chúng tôi tạo ra sự khác biệt to lớn cho cả giáo viên và học sinh.

Nếu bạn quan tâm hoặc có bất kỳ câu hỏi nào, vui lòng gửi e-mail cho Guiomar Rodriguez (2/3 Giáo viên Nhập môn Tiếng Tây Ban Nha) hoặc Maria Guzman (Giáo viên Nhập môn Tiếng Tây Ban Nha 4/5).

Welcome from Principal Sahnica Washington and Assistant Principal Keyunda Wilson

Dear Beacon Hill Families,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! We are eager to work alongside all of you. As your new administration team, we anticipate continuing the great work that BHIS has done thus far. We are proud to join this team to fulfill the mission of creating life-long learners that are critical thinkers and global citizens. We also intend to prioritize our district’s initiatives and areas of focus: High-quality instructionCulture of care, and Responsiveness. To do this well, we must create strong relationships and trust. We look forward to establishing regular listening and learn opportunities to hear from you.

School bell times will be 7:55am-2:25pm (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday). On Wednesdays bell times will be 7:55-1:10pm. Given Covid-19 is still in our mist we will be working to prioritize the health and safety of all, by following the guidelines we receive from the CDC and our district.

Tenga en cuenta que nuestra puerta siempre está abierta, así que no dude en comunicarse si tiene preguntas, comentarios o inquietudes.

Como comunidad escolar y distrito, estamos emocionados de estar de regreso en persona a tiempo completo, trabajando en asociación con usted y la comunidad, para desarrollar y hacer crecer a cada estudiante individualmente. El timbre de la escuela será de 7:55 am a 2:25 pm (lunes, martes, jueves y viernes). Los miércoles la hora de la campana será de 7: 55-1: 10pm. Dado que Covid-19 todavía está en nuestra niebla, trabajaremos para priorizar la salud y la seguridad de todos, siguiendo las pautas que recibimos de los CDC y nuestro distrito. Esto significa que continuarán algunas restricciones; pero continuaremos involucrándonos con nuestra comunidad y haciendo conexiones a lo largo del año escolar. Colectivamente, seguiremos siendo flexibles porque sabemos que la orientación puede cambiar. Consulte los enlaces con más información en nuestra página de distrito.

Uniform policy update

Hello Wonderful Families of Beacon Hill International,

I hope this message finds you well and enjoying our beautiful Seattle weather.  I know many of you have asked about the uniform policy for the upcoming school year. Due to the transition out of uniforms during the pandemic and after reviewing feedback from the survey; we made the decision to discontinue school uniforms. You are welcome to continue to wear the uniform, however it will not be a school practice moving forward.  As a school, we will work to support families in need.  More information will be coming soon.

Thank you,

Sahnica Washington
Proud Principal
Beacon Hill International

The school needs you!

We are super excited to announce the return of our Amity Guest Teachers! Our school will be hosting two guest teachers next year, Iris Ferro from Spain and Harol Rubio from Colombia!

We urgently need two families to host these amazing young people.

We understand that it is a big commitment, so we are only asking families to commit to eight weeks of hosting a teacher. The PTA will be able to contribute a small amount each month to help offset the cost of providing room and board for the Guest Teachers.

This is a truly unique opportunity for your family to:

  • Practice Spanish at home
  • Participate in an authentic cultural exchange by sharing your culture(s) and learning about Spanish or Colombian culture
  • Build a fun and loving relationship with a young person
  • Support the diversity and international nature of the entire BHIS community

Other BHIS families who have hosted Guest Teachers have found it rewarding and enriching. Many stay in touch with their Guest Teachers. Please email Kate Benward (kate.benward@gmail.com) if you can help out.
