WWW- THE POWER OF PARTNERSHIP
Next week BAIS students will disperse all over Bandung to serve our community. They will be serving in places like schools, hospitals, kampung, prisons, unwed mothers home, and serving in ways that model the spirit of Christ.
Though the BAIS students and staff will be the ones in the community doing the acts of service it is the entire BAIS community that partner together to make Week Without Walls a success. There are three ways that I want to ask for your partnership as we prepare for this amazing week.
When we work, we work, but when we pray God works. Our students will no doubt work hard as they serve our community next week but these efforts will not achieve their full potential if they are not covered in prayer.
We will serve in 12 different projects during Week Without Walls all over the city of Bandung. Transporting students to and from these projects is no easy task and it takes a lot of planning and organization. Ms. Harsono has done an amazing job at organizing the transportation and so many of you have generously partnered with us to provide vehicles and drivers to
make WWW a success. If you have not committed to providing a vehicle and driver, would you please consider doing so and if you have thank you for your partnership. Ms. Harsono will be sending a reminder to you along with the details you and your driver will need.
Every student at BAIS will not only be serving during Week Without Walls but they will be serving on a team. In order for every team to be successful, every member of the team is to be depended on. Will you partner with us to make sure that your children are not only in attendance every day of WWW but that they are on time? This will help us to make sure that every team can leave BAIS on time every day and that they will be able to keep their schedule of service.
Thank you for helping to make this year’s Week Without Walls a success. When we all partner together with God and each other we can achieve more than is possible with individual effort alone.

When talking with BAIS graduate, Tivara Tanudjaja after her first semester of university, one thing she said that was really helpful in deciding where to apply for school was the summer programs she did before her senior year. It helped her know which schools she wanted to apply to and even helped her eliminate schools from her list.
Throughout the school year, we receive information about summer programs at universities around the world. We have combined it into one document for quick access and would like to pass that information along for you and your student to review. Please be aware that some due dates are coming up quickly and more information is being added to the list.

Preschool Group Evaluations
This year BAIS will host 2 sets of group evaluations for any new preschoolers joining the school next year. The new families have a choice to come Friday, March 29th or Friday, April 12th in the afternoon. These new students will join our students in afternoon enrichment. During that time, teachers will see how well they interact with others, see how much beginning skills they have with things like numbers, letters, and colors, and then will see how comfortable the incoming students are in an English environment. The preschool evaluation time is not a test but rather a chance for the teachers to get to know their new students and better prepare for the up-coming school year.
