IST Trailblazer Speaker Series: William Kamkwamba

This is IST!

This is IST!

For International Day of Peace, IST students participated in many exciting events throughout the day!

Our classrooms celebrated by creating magnificent pieces of art, some classrooms wrote inspirational quotes about tolerance around our play area, many of our students participated in mindfulness moments around our peace pole, and our youngest learners even planted a peace garden!

It was an amazing day filled with reflection, friendship and promoting the IB attitude of tolerance!

Check out this science exploration in Grade 5!

During their first "Unit of Inquiry", trailblazers are inquiring into how human rights vary with place and time. Students are making connections, and using their research skills during this science inquiry to look at the basic human need of water. In this collaborative project our Grade 5 class is designing, creating, testing, and improving water wells.

IST is celebrating International Dot Day!

This week IST trailblazers read The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds.

During their mindfulness exercises, trailblazers reflected on the mark they have made in the world. They also reflected on how they can continue to make their mark by taking action to positively change the world around us. These future leaders continue to demonstrate compassion, tolerance, and courage on a daily basis. What a great community of learners we have here at IST!

Take a look at some of our International Dot Day projects!

In art, students used their imagination to make some very creative dot pieces.

Our Early Childhood classroom even joined in the fun during a collaborative sensory play & paint activity! This popular classroom is almost full! Interested in securing a spot in our Early Childhood 1 (ages 2-3) or Early Childhood 2 (ages 3-4) Program for 2018-2019 school year? Contact us today: admissions@istexas.org
