A busy week of learning at ISY with lots of events on the horizon. Check out the blog for more information.
Welcome back, we hope you had a wonderful holiday. Welcome to all our new families.
The new year is always a good time for reflection on what we’ve been doing to make a positive difference in our own lives and in the lives of others. As well, it’s a good time to step back, look ahead to any changes or resolutions we would like to make for the new year.
Christmas time is here!! I’m sure you’re all very excited to be celebrating the festive season. I know you will agree that your children along with our wonderful teaching staff deserve a well-earned break – they have been superstars this year to date.
The holiday season is upon us here at ISY and next week we have many festive celebrations happening. The big event is our annual Winter Concert, we hope to see you all there. See you tomorrow at the sports-a-thon.
