International Day

Last Friday we held an International Day Assembly. It was such a great experience and we have much to celebrate as a community. At the start of the assembly, we host cultural celebrations to foster respect and open-mindedness for other cultures. Not only do we become more aware, we gain a sense of pride for the diversity of our own culture. Understanding people and their backgrounds is crucial to personal and community growth and crucial to developing global citizens.

Class of 2019 - Graduation Walk

On Wednesday morning the class of 2019 took part in the first ever Graduation Walk through the AISA campus. It was absolutely wonderful to see all our community; students, staff, parents....everyone, come out and line the pathways of the school to clap, cheer and congratulate our graduates as they passed by, celebrating the end of an era and the beginnings of new adventures. There were more than a few tears from students and parents as the graduates engaged with the cheering crowds.

GR 5 LEA Partnership

The fifth graders went back to the LEA Primary School last week to work together to create art. Over 100 students worked in small groups using paper mosaic tiles to cover pieces of maps of Africa.

Teamwork + Fun = Beautiful Art

National Junior Honor Society

This year the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) started a project called Children Helping Children, where they reached out to the JSS Durumi 1 School. The NJHS saw that the school had over-sized classes with not enough desks and they provided 40 desks and chairs. Last week the NJHS visited the school to officially hand over the desks. It was a beautiful ceremony, filled with joy and appreciation. Our students were extremely happy to have had this opportunity.

Living Gallery Walk

During April Grade 5 was celebrating the life and works of artist Pablo Picasso, a renowned and influential artistic figure in the creative world. The students investigated his legacy and explored his Cubism technique through paint and pastel, as they recreated some of his works through the use of shape, line, color and value. They presented the artworks in a living gallery walk where they shared their findings and works for the AISA community.
