Congratulations to Grade 11 student Grayson Houston-Henderson, who was recently named one of ten winners in the United States of the International Baccalaureate Global Youth Action Fund award!
During their first week of school, Grade 6 students participated in a program called Red Devils Ready, a comprehensive orientation to set them up for success in Middle School.
At the Primary School, the rules that all students and teachers follow are also known as the "Three Bs": Be Safe, Be Kind, Be Respectful.
This year, Grade 3 teachers Ms. Vivi Sperling (English) and Ms. Angie Bernal (Spanish) decided to have their classes explore the Three Bs a bit more deeply in order to give the students more agency and develop their own classroom rules.
In the April 26 edition of @WIS, you may recall seeing that two Grade 12 students, Ava and Natalia, were working on a mosaic made with glass, ceramics, and chipped teacups found in the Dacha before it moved across campus.
On Monday, June 5, we were thrilled to welcome storyteller Eshu Bumpus to the Primary School! Using many voices, movements, and songs, he engaged our students and teachers by sharing folktales from different African traditions.
Congratulations to our Grade 8 students, who presented their Keystone Projects on May 31! New this year, the Keystone Project is a bridge between Grade 5 PYP Exhibition and the Grade 10 Project, and is the culminating activity for WIS Middle School students.
