For the past 8 years ISK has participated in the Szlachetna Paczka program here in Poland. This is a program that aims to assist families in need all around Poland, and over the years the ISK community has helped numerous families here in the Krakow area. This year, the ISK Early Years, Elementary School, Middle School, and for the first time, High School will be helping to make this a better holiday season for one family each. Please contact your child’s homeroom teacher for additional information, a description of the family and the list of items that is needed.
Students in Grade 4 took a field trip to visit the African Museum in Olkusz. Students were given a guided tour of three exhibitions: African culture, fossils, and basket weaving. Additionally, the students participated in a workshop where they learned how to make traditional African masks. A special thank you to Mr. Kuszka and Mr. Ramirez for bringing learning to life!
Our budding scientists in Grade Zero were amazed by what they experienced on our trip to the local science park. They explored laws of physics, optical illusions, sound gardens and labyrinths.The children left the park with lots of questions that they are now investigating back at school.
Please join us for the ISK Fall Festival

Greetings from Rychwałd!
We arrived yesterday in rainy ☔ weather for our three days in the hills outside Żywiec. Although the outdoor atmosphere was somewhat uninviting, the atmosphere within our group of 123 middle and high school students and 16 teachers was warm and welcoming, as team leaders and staff helped everyone get settled in.
Our first activity was a treasure hunt in the city center of Żywiec where teams of students followed clues to find 50 landmarks both obvious and not so obvious. They took pictures of each item along the way. And as an added bonus, the sun came out!
Today and tomorrow we have three core activities: a hike up Góra Żar, orienteering and survival games; and a ropes course. Tonight we will have a bonfire, karaoke 🎤; dancing and some games spread around our venue.
As a reminder, we plan on returning to the Carrefour parking lot tomorrow between 15:30-16:00. If you are picking up a younger sibling(s) at school, please do that first and then head down to the buses. And if you are making different arrangements than usual for pick up, please inform Mr. Daniel if it involves a taxi 🚕.
Attached is a picture of all of us in the Żywiec city center yesterday.
Children in our Early Years Program have been investigating things that fly. They got the chance to examine up close many butterflies, beetles and stick bugs at the Butterfly Farm. The children were amazed at the shapes, sizes and patterns in nature.
