The mission of the International School of Louisiana is to provide a challenging education emphasizing language immersion, international awareness, the celebration of diversity and community responsibility.

Family Liaison Corner:

Dear parents,

We have many exciting events on the horizon for next week. On Tuesday, December 17th, we will be having our S3B class assembly. We will also be presenting our Bikes for Books presentation. Two lucky winners will receive a new bike. The two students who read the most books will win!

On Thursday, December 19th, we will have a dress down day. Pay $1.00 and your child can wear their favorite pajamas. 

On December 20th, the last day before winter break, school will dismiss at 12:00 pm sharp. No aftercare will be provided. Any child who isn't picked up at dismissal will be assessed a $25 late fee that must be paid at pickup. We will also be having our West Bank Shuffle. This event is for students and staff only; however, parents are encouraged to join us for the last hour. We will be having a dance party! This is always a fun way to kick start the holiday season! Please feel free to send your child to school in jeans that day.

We will also do our annual Lucky Grapes tradition. Please send your child in with 12 grapes. Any extras will be very much appreciated. 

Winter break will begin on Monday, December 23rd and classes will resume on Monday, Jan. 7th.
