At the end of every year, there are bitter-sweet moments. One of the bitter moments is saying goodbye to staff members who are moving on. This year, we are saying goodbye to a few staff members who have been here for many years.
We are excited for their futures and are praying for them as they move to their new homes. We know that they will be wonderful additions to their new communities because they have been powerful encourages in our community. We encourage you to reach out to them – send an email or note of thankfulness for their love and dedication to the students of BAIS. I know that your kind words will mean the world to them.
As we come to the end of another school year, we are excited to celebrate with our community both the many achievements and the growth of our students. I know that there are many events going on, so we wanted to give you a concise list of the dates and times for these celebrations.

If you have a child that holds a student visa and they are going to be leaving Indonesia permanently, you must arrange with your agent to get this permit processed BEFORE their departure.
Please process this EPO 10 days before they leave Indonesia or discuss with your agent when is the best day to submit the documents and pick up your child’s passport. Your agent must get an EPO cover letter and authorization letter from BAIS. Afterwards, they must go to the immigration office to apply for EPO. For your information, immigration gives you 7 days to leave the country once they stamp your child’s passport. If you have any questions, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
BAIS Drama is looking for volunteer piano players to play and record the music for next year’s drama so that Pak John can make backing tracks for our production of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. If you can play piano well and would be interested in helping out BAIS drama, please email Ms. LaMertha at email@example.com.
Anastasia and Jason came from the great state of Ohio, United States of America. They have three children, Josiah (10), Abigail (8), and Avalon (3). They will come to Bandung in July with their Mom, Linda, and two dogs, Chip and Carlie.
Both Anastasia and Jason will teach secondary classes. Here are some interesting snippets about them:
David was originally from the Golden State of California in the US, which he jokingly believed to be the best state in the Union. 😀 He grew up in California and Hawaii and moved overseas to South Korea in 2011. He married Mina in Korea, and after a few years of teaching in Korea, he and his family moved to Vietnam. He is blessed with his beautiful wife, Mina, and three children, Jasmine An (7), Cody Khai (5), and Leilani Ai (2).
