Outside of the inquiry of the prescribed titles, students had the opportunity to be active in different activities such as designing their own t-shirts or vitalizing the importance of certain ways of knowing through movies such as “Mementos” or “Inception”. The peak of questioning knowledge was built by the... Read More

Sadly this year, we were unable to experience the magic of the Weihnachtsmarkt. However, the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) brought the Christmas Market to the ISS Community! The ISS Community were able to pre-order Christmas Bags filled with traditional German novelties and also has the opportunity to join the PTA for a virtual "Cheers" into the holiday break.

Our European Starry display is up on our Sindelfingen Campus and we wish that the ISS community could see this marvelous piece of artwork for themselves. The display shows the different stars made by the four schools involved in the Erasmus Project 2020 – 2021: “European Youth – your voice will be heard!” representing their research into their partner schools and countries. We truly cannot wait to meet our friends in Polska, Lituvia, and España!

During their Sharing The Planet unit of inquiry, the Grade 1 students explored how all members of an art community could work together to create an inspiring and meaningful art piece. Through group discussion, they made agreements about how they could each take some responsibility to create a whole class piece of artwork.
Each of them designed and made their own feather, but only by putting them together, we have wings to fly. It was amazing for them to observe how each member can... Read More
