Writer's Fair

Thank you to all the parents and students who attended the ES Writer’s Fair. This fair allowed parents to review the student made exhibits of published works. This fair will show you the progression of writing from August to February as well as the progression from preschool to fifth grade.


We had another great turnout for this year’s AISA Run/Walk! There were approximately 225 individuals at the event and around 160 active participants. The AISA Run/Walk is an annual event that AISA holds to raise money for the American Foundation for Children with AIDS (AFCA), our partnership school, LEA Primary School Kado, and the Gwoza & Bama Internally Displaced Persons camp (IDP) in Durumi, Abuja. This event is also a great social activity with the goal of helping others less fortunate while being physically active. Students found sponsors beforehand and then completed laps around the track to help raise money while also earning a raffle ticket for every five laps they completed. Donati

Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

“It's my favorite book with action, adventure, sci-fi, politics, and amazing twists and turns, and of course, a huge reveal at the end. This book was published in 1985 and yet, Orson Scott Card seems to have predicted the future before it was even possible! He discusses the internet -- known as "the net" in the book, before it was even created (in 1988). Discusses how Ender and his pals use computers in their desks, and can chat with each other (like ipads/phones), and the rise of how democracies are affected by the internet, forums and news.”

Girls Volleyball Wins 3rd at WAISAL

This weekend in Accra, Ghana, the Middle School Girls Volleyball won third place in the WAISAL International Volleyball Tournament in Accra, Ghana. They lost the first match in two very tight games against LCS 1. Both games ended with less than a 5 point difference. In their final match for third place against LCS 2, the girls won solidly, securing the third place trophy for themselves! The boys dug in and played extremely hard together as a team, but ultimately were not able to get into the top three. They did win the sportsmanship award.

This week is the annual Book Fair hosted by the AISA PTA to encourage students to read. They are selling Scholastic books for students of all ages. The book fair will be open all day tomorrow and we encourage you to stop by and take a look at all the books we have to offer.

The House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende

“I love the magic realism in the book and the powerful female characters. Plus it is just written beautifully.” This books follows four generations of the Trueba family, but mainly centers on Esteban and Alba Trueba. It traces the post-colonial political and social upheavals of Chile, although the names of the country and figures are never explicitly stated in the story. Ms. Kate also considers this book one of her favorites, so check it out!

Library Celebrates Black History Month

As the LMC staff continues to celebrate Black History Month, we recommend that you check out the Black History Makers series, where you can learn about leaders like Kenneth Kaunda and musicians like Samuel Coleridge Taylor. We also recommend The Eyes on the Prize Civil Rights Reader, a wonderful collection of primary sources collected during the United States’ Civil Rights movement. It includes speeches by Martin Luther King, Jr., Gwendolyn Brooks, and Nelson Mandela, and spans nearly fifty years of the struggle for civil rights.

The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkein

“It was the first novel trilogy that truly inspired me to take the thoughts and fantasies I'd had as I child and channel them into my own stories.” The Lord of the Rings trilogy follows the hobbit Frodo and his travel companions through the course of the War of the Rings. The whole trilogy is over 1,000 pages, so if you are looking to spend a lot of time with some interesting characters, this is the series for you!
