Fun Family Writing Workshop

Families are invited to work with visiting author David Greenberg.

"The purpose of Family Writing Workshop is to bring kids and parents together in an important educational activity. Greenberg starts the workshop by reading several of his poems. Next, he demonstrates a writing activity and family groups collaboratively try their hand at the same sort of writing (which always has some sort of family theme). Loads of fun!"

Date: Tuesday 18 April

Time: 3:30 PM

Location: Elementary School Library (ES Library) 

Hope to see you there!

You can order David's books with the attached Form HERE.

To help celebrate Poetry Month, ICS welcomes visiting author David Greenberg!

His poems are filled with alliteration, acrobatic meter patterns, and snazzy rhymes. Students are so captivated by the joy of Greenberg's poems they chant and quote their favorite lines. Greenberg weaves explanations of the various elements that activate good writing into his workshops.  His workshops are standards based academics wrapped within memorable entertainment. He discusses the fierce perseverance necessary to succeed and emphasizes the key importance of the writing process...and he'll be working with the ICS students and staff 17 - 21 April.

Our elementary athletes came home with victory!

A team of 36 athletes and 3 adults went to Sandford International School last Saturday, 18 February, to compete in the city track and field meet. Five schools, including ICS took part in the meet. Our super athletes, in their custom made t-shirt provided by our athletics office, put-up a fantastic performance in all age and gender categories to bring back their long standing championship title that they lost last year. They also exhibited the best sportsmanship spirit that was noted and rewarded by the organizing school.

     

Officiating of the various events was done by all participating schools collaboratively. ICS officiated the long jump, and at this juncture, we would like to acknowledge the hard work of our own Mr. Ralston for helping out with the long jump. Coach Azeb and coach Zelalem, for their excellent organizational skill in holding the team together and helping every athlete participate in their respective events. It was a morning well spent. 

Sincere thanks goes to all the parents, who came to support our team as well as help out with some of the events that needed extra hand.
