Dear ISM Parents
This coming week is Heritage Week starting Monday 16th of October! We are looking forward to parents or extended family members sharing their heritage with students either by storytelling, sharing photos, sampling food or just bringing artifacts! This is a great opportunity for students to learn about our diverse community by having our school families share their stories. More information went home today about Heritage Week. Please check your child's or teen's backpack for the info sheet.
Also next week on Friday 20th of October, for UN Day we ask that students come to school in their home country attire. At 8:25 we will start a parade where students will march in their home country groupings around the courtyard proudly carrying their flag. Students will then all join up on stage to sing for parents. Parents are also welcome to wear home country attire and join in on the fun!
Student Council elections will start next week with students campaigning for the positions of President, Vice- President, Secretary and Treasurer. Voting will occur on UN Day for these positions followed by class representative voting on the following Monday! I am curious to see who will be elected to these positions and what great ideas our Student Council will have!
On Saturday 21st of October we will have our World Fest. Again it would be wonderful if parents could share hometown food for all to sample and join in on the fun. There will be a bouncy castle and a variety if games for children to participate in. Bring your family and friends, it should be a very entertaining afternoon!
Wednesday 25th of October will be an early release day at 12:15. No lunch will be served that day as all students will go home at 12:15. Be sure to inform your drivers!
The next few weeks will be very busy as we have many activities occurring. Our monthly assembly will be on Friday October 27 and of course Halloween is on the Tuesday the 31st!
