Senior Graduation and Moving Up Ceremonies


May 19, 2017-- Congratulations to our Seniors, they completed their IB Diploma exams today. It's been a very hard slog... but they made it and we are so very proud of them. They leave for their Senior trip to Somone this Sunday morning accompanied by Wendy Welander, Sam Pennypacker, Whitney Omosefe, Stephanie Creamer and Eric Rodine. We are now busy preparing for graduation on Friday evening and Senior Banquet Saturday evening. Although all graduations are special - this one of course is extra special for Wendy and I, being the last. We have accompanied some of our graduates since their time in 8th grade at ISD and have seen them transform into very impressive young adults. It will be an emotional evening for us as we also begin the serious bidding farewell to ISD and its amazing community.

Graduation will be on Friday May 25 at 7:00PM at ISD Senior Banquet will be on Saturday May 26

At this time Wendy Welander and other IBDP faculty will once again outline life in the IB Diploma years starting for this cohort in August when they return to school.

Grade 8 Moving Up Ceremony Please remark your calendars for the June 2nd 8th Grade Moving Up Ceremony. This is also a wonderful ISD tradition which marks the passage from Middle to High School. It is also a leave taking for some of our departing 8th graders. I hope to see all of you at the ceremony and the lunch that follows.Anja Sebunya
