AIS-Salzburg Newsletter

Dear AIS-Salzburg Community,

The Fall Trimester has come to a conclusion recently and the individual academic results are now in and recorded on official transcripts.  There are a large number of students who returned excellent marks and are a credit to themselves, their parents, their teachers and the school. Given the obstacles they faced this past fall, our hats go off to them and we congratulate them heartily for a job very well done.  A few others still need to find the sources of motivation that lie within themselves and begin shifting into a higher gear given the reality of college-preparatory educational expectations.  With the assistance and constant guidance of our excellent teachers, we do expect the numbers on our honor roll to increase in the coming months and trimesters, as they nearly always do.  For those who are struggling, just remember:  airplanes always take off against the wind; not with it.  

We hope you enjoy this week's newsletter.
