Last week we ran a story in the ISL news about our Early Year's students donating their shoes to the less fortunate through a Red Cross shoe drive. These students are now in the local news and on the Croix-Rouge Luxembourgoise website...
This past weekend, three ISL Upper School students gave of their Sunday morning free time to assist in an outreach by Luxembourg's Cultur'all Association. Matteo Giusto, Sverrir Sigthorsson and Alex Starck handed out popcorn, water and croissants to movie-goers at a special free screening of Asterix and Obelix at Utopolis.
On Friday, January 23rd, just before pick up time, dozens of parents gathered for a taste of coffee or tea and sweet snacks provided by parent volunteers. This Lower School Coffee Gathering was a great opportunity to connect with otherwise busy friends, or meet someone completely new.
On Wednesday morning, January 28, almost two dozen parents attended a Reading Strategies Workshop prepared by ISL's Lower School Reading & Learning Support Specialist, Darann Smith. Darann shared a variety of techniques for supporting the emergent and beginning reader.
Ten students from ISL are in the top 50 in Luxembourg and have made it through to the 2nd round (semi-final) of the International Biology Olympiad.
