Congratulations to the Middle School Soccer team, Coach Marcos and Coach Dean on a successful trip to St. Petersburg for the CEESA soccer tournament!
Attention all parents!
Would you like to put your energy into helping to strengthen the ISK community? Do you have ideas about how to continue to improve our school? We have two elected positions available on the ISK School Board of Trustees beginning next school year. If you are interested in becoming a candidate in the election, please send a short statement describing your interest and qualifications (no more than six or seven sentences total) and a photo to KrakowCG@state.gov and SchoolBoard@iskonline.org by Friday, June 2 at 12:00. The elections will take place between Tuesday, June 6 and Tuesday, June 20.
ISK’s High School Choir have just returned from the CEESA HS Choir Festival in Prague. They joined with 70 other singers to rehearse and perform together, ending with a wonderful Gala concert. They worked hard, sang their socks off and had a great time!
ISK was proud to host the CEESA Middle School Knowledge Bowl on April 27-30. Thanks to Mr. Elkei, Coach Dean, Ms. Heard, and many volunteers from the staff and parent community, we hosted 54 students from five other schools. All 70 students worked hard all year to be prepared. Our ISK “B” team (Zosia, Ada, Shraddha, and Kat) made the quarter finals and was just one victory short of a trophy. Our “A” team tied for fifth place and lost only to the team that won the whole tournament and to our own “B” team. It was a very exciting tournament to watch! We are extremely proud of our teams. We also had two members who generously demonstrated ISK sportsmanship by playing for two other teams, enabling them to compete! Thanks to Mr. Watson and Ms. Caldwell for being our ISK coaches!
The first ever university tour to attend ISK was held Wednesday, March 22, 2017. Students in grades 10 and 11 had the opportunity to meet with the admissions directors from many European universities, find out more information on each school, and develop a better understanding of the application process to each university.
The following universities attended the first ever ISK University Fair:
Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University
University College Utrecht
University College Roosevelt
Tilburg University and University College Tilburg
Leiden University and Leiden University College
Groningen University and University College Groningen
Maastricht University and University College Maastricht
Our youngest ISK students have been investigating “Space:” What is it? Where is it? What is in it and why are we in it? These questions have inspired the children to make models of our solar system, experiment with representations of day and night and learn about astronauts and their favorite planets. A trip to the planetarium was enjoyed by all!
