Middle School Informance

Gabi, as part of the Grade 7-8 Choir, was part of the school's Middle School Informance - a time when the students, instead of performing for their parents, demonstrate what it looks like as part of music education - the chance to be a part of the process of learning music theory, instrumentation, pitch, tone and the many aspects that go into learning about music.  What an amazing opportunity to get a glimpse inside the music classroom

Student-led Conferences

We had the chance to have Rania walk us through her student-led parent, teacher conferences during the middle part of the first semester.  How proud we are of her hard work, her growth as a learner and her ability to improve as a reader and writer and mathematician.  So proud!

Pokeman Go! and Start of School

We did a fun homegroup video for school and put it together.

Here it is.

Children's Hospital

As part of the Grade 5's commitment to community service, a group of students visit the Children's Hospital every Sunday.  Today was Rania's turn and a chance to interact, play games and learn from the children who are in the Cancer Ward at the Children's Hospital.

Gabi's Soccer Tournament

Gabi's team is part of the U-13 soccer tournament; fun to watch their team get better and better.  With Coach Faria and some talented athletes, the girls' team is improving quite a bit.  Fun to watch Gabi as part of the team on a beautiful (and hot) Saturday tournament day.

Rania at Basketball

Rania is having a great season with Coach Joan and Coach Suji as part of the U-11 basketball team.  Their team is off to a great start with a fun victory against their opponents on this day. So fun to watch the girls improve as athletes and have loads of fun!

Remembering Bill Powell

In a huge loss to the educational community, Bill Powell passed away the past summer.  ISKL was privileged enough to host a commemoration of his life's work.  With many educators and leaders from around the region attending, it was a moving (and funny) tribute to a true giant in the world of education.

You can see more from this touching moment from #RememberingBillPowell on Twitter.

Girl Scouts

Gabi has joined Girl Scouts and is having a great start to her time with many of her friends, and enjoying some of the challenges and experiences of participating in Girl Scouts.

MS Open House

With our first big parent meeting, the Middle School Open House, Peter and I restructured our Open House Presentation.  Nicely dressed up for the big presentation.

It went over pretty well, and thanks to the amazing teachers we have, it was a very positive evening.
