Dixon Campus 

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.
Language All Around 
November has begun and at ISL Dixon our current theme is Language All Around!  This theme will continue until Winter Break and all classes will be engaging with the concept of language and communication always surrounding our daily lives.  Our younger students can work on their language skills at home by telling about their day with sequencing words:  first, then, next, last, etc.  Second graders may have already begun to read their surroundings, noticing that text is everywhere!  (Billboards, street signs, cars, commercials, t-shirts, etc.)  As the weather starts to get cooler, you may find yourself saying "Brrrr!"  How about some words that start with the /br/ blend?  (Bread, broom, bracelet, etc.)  Link:   /br/ stationary

School pictures were sent home last week. If your child did not receive their pictures, missed picture day or you would like for them to retake their pictures, please email me and let me know. Class pictures and school retakes pictures will be November 21. Envelopes will be sent home on Monday in the blue folder.

Dear Parent/Guardian,
ISL will begin accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year on November 22, 2019.  Please remember that sibling preference is available to siblings of currently enrolled ISL students whose application is submitted by the deadline and who apply to the campus in which the current sibling is enrolled (Uptown siblings applying for K-2 can choose to apply to Dixon and/or West Bank Campus.).  The deadline to apply for
 K-1st grade is January 31, 2020. Application deadline for 2nd-8th is January 15, 2020.
* Sibling preference will be granted only if the current ISL student attends ISL for the 2020-2021 school year.

  • Please make sure to link the current ISL student to the sibling so that the child receives sibling preference.  
  • Prospective candidates must rank ISL as their first choice to receive Sibling Preference.

What are we up to this week?
On Saturday, November 2nd, we welcomed over 200 ISL Team participants at the Crescent City Fall Classic race! It was a wonderful morning and great to see so many smiling faces. ISL participates as a community partner through the grant program. Depending on the number of registered participants, ISL is eligible to win a grant prize. Thanks to the participation of so many of our families, we got 2nd place and a grant award of $1500! 

We couldn't do it without you. Thank you for your support.

From all of us at ISL,

S2A Morning Assembly. Great job!
