Dear Grade 2 Families,

Hello! My name is Merrian Gagnon, and I go by Ms. Mer at school. I will be your
teacher for the upcoming academic school year at the American International School in
Cyprus. I hope you and your family have enjoyed a safe, healthy, and fun summer. Ms.
Dina, our amazing classroom assistant this year, and I have been preparing for an
outstanding school year.

Ms. Dina joined the AISC faculty in November, 2013. She has two grown daughters and
a grandson that she loves dearly. Ms. Dina is originally from England, born of Cypriot
parents, and returned to build a life here when she was a teen. She is looking forward to
a prosperous school year with your student.

I am joining the AISC faculty along with my teaching husband, Mr. Mike Mills, and our
two children in grades 8 and 10. We have spent the past few years teaching at the
American International School Egypt and have also lived and taught in Miami Beach,
Florida, Monterey Bay, California, and Rodney Bay, St. Lucia. In addition, I am on staff
with faculty of a large university in the U.S. and teach in the College of Education
department. We are happy to settle in Cyprus and find the island to be a wonderful fit
for our family so far! Per the AISC Mission Statement, my teaching and personal goal is
to ...inspire[s] students to become enthusiastic life-long learners....

Please find the attached sheet Elementary Information Sheet/Supply List for the
required supplies for our grade. Please make sure you have brought all of the supplies
by Monday, September 15, 2014. It is imperative that each student brings the
appropriate supplies needed for the beginning of a progressive school year.

The partnership between home and classroom is vital to the success of our students, and
our second grade program will be transparent. Regular events and updates will be
emailed and posted to our classroom website, www.wearecyprus.weebly.com. Your
children will take charge of their learning experience, and I encourage you to speak with
them often about the amazing journey of second grade.

Please note, we are beginning school on Week 2, Day 6 of our regular schedule.

Nice to meet you!

Welcome to the 2014 2015 academic year,

-- Ms. Mer and Ms. Dina
