ISA was privileged to be awarded first and second place in AHATA's Recycling Art Competition, which took place from May 8th until May 12. The purpose of the competition was to incorporate creativity and artistic abilities with promoting the usage of eco-friendly materials. All of the pieces of art that were entered in the contest were made from reused materials that were originally used for different purposes. The sixth grade class was awarded second place in the competition with the mermaid they created and the palm fronds they painted. The makerspace and the art history classes were able to earn first place in the competition with the lamp, chair, and divi divi tree they created. Congratulations to both groups for representing our school in such an outstanding manner!

Our talented, young soccer players took the field during the IBISA tournament, and fought their hardest to bring another title home! IBISA is an annual competition played between a number of schools on the island. For the tournament, our students in fifth grade and below performed to the best of their abilities and worked hard as a team. Unfortunately, during the semi-final, ISA lost to Washington and were kicked out of the tournament. They had the opportunity to fight for the third place medal and played very hard, but they were unable to capitalize. They left the tournament as fourth place holders, and although they fought hard, they are ready to come back next year and fight for it once more! The coach of the Elementary team, Coach Sam, said, " Our soccer players did their best, but were not able to defend the Cup from last year. We have to accept that and we need to work harder to take the championship back home." We are proud of our students for their effort and can't wait to see them back on the field next year!

During the spring break, one of our ISA elementary students went to Las Vegas to compete in two karate tournaments. One was the International Karate Tournament, and the other was the US Open Tournament. This Student's name is Diego Andres Lafee Rodriguez, he's only in 3rd grade, and he won five medals at the international event for the 8-9 age group. There were nearly 4,000 people that attended this event. The tournament lasted three days and was a physical competition. It was a great new experience for Diego and his sister as they met so many new people. Diego's little sister, Fabiana Helena Lafee Rodriguez, also won four medals. She competed in the gymnastic competition and did excellent as well. Both brother and sister have lots of talent and continue to get better.

Parade of Nations By: Rishi Bhatia International Day is one of the most anticipated events at ISA, with tons of activities taking place on that day. One of those events is the Parade of Nations. The Parade of Nations marks the start of International Day and it's the biggest event of the day. It consists of students standing alongside their flag and representing their country. They then go one by one in alphabetical order on stage with their country. After all the countries have gone on and off stage, the United Nations flag is presented and set in the center as a show of respect to all nations. This event is a highly anticipated event and this year we had 22 countries. It was a fantastic parade with everyone proudly representing his/her country.
