Happy Friday Flash!


Impressive! What an amazing job our teachers and students did to recognize STEAM Week and display their work. The expression on our students' faces when they learn something new and comprehend the how, what, and why is truly great to see! Thank you teachers!

Welcome Natasha Thomas!

Natasha will be joining AIS next week as our Staff Accountant. She comes to us from Florida where she has worked as an assistant accountant for the past several years. If you see her around make sure to introduce yourself and say hello.

A Special Thank You!

Teachers and staff would like to thank Alva T. for her assistance this week. While her classmates were away, Alva, a 5e (7th) grader, stepped up to the plate. She subbed as a helper teacher in several classes, painted our outdoor library, arranged the interior library, and maintained her studies with a smile. Excellent job!

Raclette Night

Thank you to all the families that attended. There was no shortage of food, beverages and laughter. New friendships were made and neighbors discovered. It was a successful evening and we look forward to more gatherings.

Yearbook Order

Yearbooks may now be ordered and will be delivered before summer. They will be distributed in class, giving students the chance to participate in a fun tradition of signing each other's yearbooks.

The yearbook may be purchased for $50 per volume and the payment deadline is May 10, 2023.

Whether you plan to purchase it or not, we kindly ask that all families complete the questionnaire confirming you received this information.
