The ISK PTA is pleased to announce the details of the 6th annual Father Daughter Dance!
Kids love winter, and with good reason. For a few weeks in the year snow becomes the magical substance that is a building and sculpting material, ground padding, science experiment material, food (yuck!) and even currency at our outdoor play areas at ISK. The snow brings excitement to our outdoor daily learning. Let it snow!

Grade 10 history students prepared posters about major events of World War II and became experts on a chosen topic. The posters were hung in the hallway and in the history room on display for all students to see. During history classes, the students gave a tour and guided the class through the exhibition. We all learned more about World War II through this activity. Thanks Grade 10!

From tuning in, finding out, sorting out, going further, making connections, and to taking action are just some of the ways they are developing their knowledge.
ISK’s 8th grade physical science students have been studying simple machines such as pulleys, inclined planes and levers.
