Family Liaison Corner:

Dear parents,

This morning I had the privilege of sitting in on a few kindergarten classes. I was impressed by seeing the students engaged, understanding, and speaking some Spanish already! These kids are amazing!! In such a short time, they are already understanding so much! I encourage you all to talk with your children and let them show you all the words and phrases they know!! You will be shocked!

  Just as a reminder, the Scholastic Book Fair will take place next week, September  30th - October 4th. Each grade will be able to come in and shop during a designated school day. However, the book fair will also be open to the public for one hour after dismissal adhering to the following schedule: 
    • Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday - 3:30pm-4:30pm

    • Wednesday - 2:30pm-3:30pm

If you'd like your child to have the opportunity to purchase some fun reading materials, you can send them with money on their designated days, which have slightly changed:

    • Monday - Preview Day for All Grades 

    • Tuesday - Kindergarten & 1st Grade

    • Wednesday - 1st & 3rd Grades

    • Thursday - 2nd & 3rd Grades

    • Friday - 4th & 5th Grade 
       

Also, please take a look at our book fair homepage. There you will find more information about the book fair schedule, volunteer opportunities, and accepted payment methods, which include eWallets, a digital payment option for students. https://bookfairs.scholastic.com/bf/internationalschooloflao

Teacher Spotlight:
 

My name is Susana Lopez. I am originally from Venezuela. When I am not at work, I enjoy working out and going to the beach.

I have lived in New Orleans for two years. I am excited to be teaching in the USA! This will be a new and gratifying experience for me. I am grateful for the opportunity to be part of ISL, and to have this wonderful multicultural experience, where everyone can exchange thoughts and opinions with respect and kindness. 

I know that I will learn so much!
