January 13, 2017--Welcome Back Everyone! We hope you all enjoyed a restful break with lots of time among family and friends. Welcome to the sixteen new ISD families! We are glad you are here! The elementary teachers certainly came back to school this week with revived energy and focus on learning. Our students seem happy to be back in the routine of things and they especially enjoy seeing one another. 2016 was a great year for us and by clicking on the link below, you will find some amazing photos taken by our very own, Evgenia Dolina. She really is quite talented at capturing our community in all it’s awesomeness! Thank you Evgenia!
The Green Team and After School Elementary Garden Students did an awesome job tending to our garden. Thank you all so much for your commitment and energy moving dirt and sand, digging, watering and planting all the flowers, veggies and greens that are growing there now. Do we have tomatoes yet? Thank you Ms. Nyah for helping us all think about what we eat and where food comes from.
ASA - After School Activities are up and running!
