The Love Project Videos

Not sure that I have the embed codes, but here are both acts of the amazing Middle School Play.

Act I Friday Night: Panther Tales

Act II Friday Night: Panther Tales

The Love Project

Gabi had her middle school stage debut, with a role in "The Love Project," an amazing original play written just for our middle school students by Tina Casey.   Gabi had several roles, including strutting the catwalk, and being part of the strange dance between boys and girls at the MS Party.  What an amazing experience to be a part of the cast and work together for such a great production.

Care Club

Rania has greatly enjoyed the options for after school activities.  Care Club is a fun chance for the kids to be involved with animals, while also looking to do random acts of kindness and make things better one act at a time. (And so fun to have Ms. Ely again!)

Bond (& Pavilion)

For the evening, we had the chance to watch the new James Bond movie, as well as seeing the new (and extravagant as always) Christmas decorations at the Pavilion.

International Fest

One of the highlights of the school calendar is International Fest, with some great dancing, fun music and great experiences.  One of Tracy's students was a key photographer for the event.  It was interesting, having just returned from Japan to see the Japanese booth at ISKL!  What an amazing school community.  So proud.

Last Evening in Tokyo

During the last evening in Tokyo, we were able to get out and go for a walk to Roppongi Hills, see a bit of Tokyo, enjoy the cool weather (and no haze!).  How incredible to be working with such a great team, and how fortunate to have two Japanese speakers who know the culture and the country so well.  That sure helped!

Great Food & Great Team

As the accreditation trip wrapped up, it was great to reflect on working with an impressive team.  We were efficient, professional, had fun together and ended up with some time to get out to some nice restaurants in Tokyo.  Fun!

Emergency Drills

Wow!  Lots for my school to learn as part of the emergency drills which were run so efficiently.  Impressive stuff, with clear preparation for emergencies - which, sadly, have happened over the years as a result of strong earthquakes.  Well prepared and impressive.
