Elementary School news
International School of Panama’s Dolphins are always up to something good, and we want to share it with you. Catch all the good news and important announcements for our elementary school right here.
Some elementary students have been stopping by the Snack Spot to enjoy a quick bite before riding the bus home. It is a quiet, clean place to eat and allows students to talk to their friends in the shade while they enjoy a quick snack. We encourage your child to pack something healthy—maybe some carrots or an apple—to enjoy before riding home on the bus!
The ISP Elementary School proudly presents Madagascar: A Musical Adventure Jr. coming in April. To support the production and feature your business in the playbill, please contact Jillian Monaghan via e-mail.
Thank you to the parents who joined us on Wednesday to hear more about Dreambox, reading, and upcoming events and activities in the elementary school. We are providing the reading resources and the PowerPoint presentation that we used. Please reach out to us if you have any questions or needs.
For the last 15 years, ISP’s Elementary School has made it a tradition to collect school supplies for our sister school, Gabriel Lewis Galindo, (Las Trancas). Gabriel Lewis Galindo School is a public elementary school located just a few kilometers from our beautiful campus, where over 400 underprivileged children attend grades pre-kinder through 6th grade in morning or afternoon shifts.
Students not only bring school supplies, but members of the Student Representative Council will have the opportunity to visit the school and deliver these donations on March 10. These 5th graders are able to interact with students from multiple grade levels, which helps to promote values such as respect for others, friendship, generosity, and possibly even a deeper appreciation. Below you will find the assigned item(s) for each grade level.
This year we want to make the project slightly more student centered, and we are asking students who can, to write small notes of encouragement, motivation, and/or good luck for an excellent new school year on the packages of the school supplies that they are donating. If the packaging is too small, or if the child is not yet writing, drawing a picture and sending it in along with the supplies would also greatly be appreciated.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to the ES office.
