Dear Parents and Students,
Tashkent International School (TIS) offers elementary students a wide range of after-school activities throughout the school year. The activities are divided into three terms – fall, winter and spring. Some activities run for the full year, such as student council. Other activities only run for one or more separate terms.
The third trimester of activities will run from Monday, March 25 through Friday, May 24, 2013.

Registration for third-trimester activities began Monday, March 11.
Once students have chosen an activity they are expected to attend this activity for the full trimester; it is not possible for students to change activities once they have started. Some activities are run by Russian-speaking instructors. As these activities are very much ‘hands-on,’ non-Russian speaking students will still be able to participate. These activities are indicated on the form by an asterisk (*).
Classes are limited in size. Placement is based on a combination of first come/first served and a lottery system in order to ensure fair allocation of spaces. If a class fills up with participants who have equal priority (they handed in their registration form on the same day), a lottery system will be used. When a class is full, additional participants will be placed on a waiting list. On the other hand, we may have to cancel some activities if we do not have enough students registered.
There will be no activities on early dismissal days, such as parent conferences, or on days where there is no school. Throughout the school year, we may have to cancel an activity for reasons beyond our control (i.e. illness of the instructor). If this happens we will do our best to either find a substitute teacher or inform you as quickly possible.
Preschool and kindergarten parents - We recommend that you sign up your child for no more than one activity a week as it’s overwhelming for them to cope with school and more than one activity.
After school, all the students involved in the ASA program should line up by the entrance close to the grade 1 classroom at 3:30. The instructors will come to get the students. Please make sure that you pick up your child at the gates when the activity ends at 4:30 p.m. If your child cannot participate in a lesson, please inform the office in advance.
We do not have supervision on campus for students not involved in ASA. Elementary students not registered in an ASA must be picked up at 3:30. If you wish to play with your child on campus after school, you are very welcome as long as you directly supervise your child.
I hope you will enjoy our ASA program and continue to embrace these learning opportunities! For further questions or clarifications, please send me an email: email@example.com
