A Busy Semester at ISP

When you examine elementary schools within the same city or in different countries, you will see many similarities. Elementary schools have their special events and themes and ISP is no different! Here are some highlights–

Spirit Week–February

Theme days & events led up to our Carnival Break. Mojadera is a huge water fight & a big party of Panama’s carnival celebration!

Bringing Literature to Life–March

All month we celebrated reading & started off the month with a parade of book characters!

Sister School Supply Drive–March

One of our sister schools, Las Trancas is a 5 minute drive from ISP. ISP has sponsored this school for years. Words cannot describe the conditions these students learn in.

4th Grade Field Trips–

Panama Canal Train, El Valle Sister School, and Overnight to Gamboa Rainforest

I was lucky to be the adopted admin to accompany 4th grade on their field trips!

In February, we took the train to the Gatun Locks in Colon since 4th grade studies the canal & Panama’s history.

La Mesa is another sister school in El Valle, 2 hours from the city. 4th grade had a book sale to raise almost 2,000 to buy supplies for the students and teachers. In December, the 4th grade fund raises for Christmas baskets for the families as well.

To support the ecosystems unit, the 4th grade has an overnight to Gamboa Rainforest Resort.

Elementary School End of the Year Party

So fun to celebrate & dance!

End of the Year Goodbye Assembly

International Schools have a turnover of staff and students. It is the nature of the life, but it is still hard to see students & staff move on. To lighten the mood, we ended with a flash mob! Click on the above link.

Michelle’s Going Away Party–Latin Flair Dress Code

What a year! ISP has been great for all of us–both boys adjusted well, made friends, & did great in school! I love my job and the colleagues I work with, and Dano became a PE teacher!
