It’s all happening at IST…

Tomorrow is our music concert starting at 7:30.  The students will be performing songs about celebrations around the world.  We think that they are the best performance – but then we are a bit biased.  Please send your child in concert dress with their uniform in their bag.

On Thursday, IST will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of Tanzania’s independence.  In honor of this special occasion, the students are encouraged to wear the colors of the Tanzania flag.  Each class will also be planting a bush around the perimeter of the school in honor of Tanzania.

We have rescheduled our class photos for next week.  Ms. Jessica and Ms. Tabitha’s class will have their class photos on Monday.  Ms. Ashleigh and Ms. Tracy’s class will have their photos on Wednesday.  Please be sure to send your child with the standard school uniform.  If it is a PE day for your child, send the PE uniform in the school bag.

The students are wrapping up the unit on “How do animals survive?”  For the culminating project, the students have created nonfiction books and an activity.  Next week, they will begin teaching other first grade classes about their habitat.

Please remember that Friday is no school because of Republic Day.

    What an active and intereting class of first graders that you have. I also have a first grade classroom and would like to exchange ideas and information.I live in the SE United States.

      Mrs. O –
      It’d be great to chat with you sometime. I’m originally from Michigan. Where in the states are you working?

      • I work in a rural school in Southeastern NC, named Penderlea Elementary. It’ s one of the last K-8 schools in the state and is surrounded by hog, turkey, corn, soybean and tree farms. It is inland from where I live in Wilmington, NC. My commute to work is a two hour drive, round trip each day.

        When I was growing up, I lived in Muskegon, Mi. for a short time. It was very pretty there on the lake.

        My assistant principal just returned from S. Africa. He was at the southern most tip. It sparked my interest in the area!

        I was hoping to meet other teachers that would be interested in interacting, for the sake of promoting a global awareness among our students.

        Yes, we will need to set up a time to chat soon!


        Debra Olszewski,

  2. P. S. How did you arrive at your current teaching position? You are a long way from home. 🙂
