Creeping up on Sports Day

Creeping up on Sports Day

It’s getting more and more festive inside the kindergarten! Spooky season is among us!

Saturns and Mercuries have finished their crafts for Halloween, and WOW! What an amazing atmosphere in the kindergarten this week!

Another decoration in our school this week is not a craft, but is just as exciting!

Every year, leading up to Sports Day, our Mercury class holds a badge drawing contest and the other classes vote for which design they like best. No names are on the front and only underclassmen are allowed to vote.

Our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners have been decided, and the winning design will be made into a badge for everyone! Who do you think won the contest? We are so excited to see how it turns out!

Next week Jupiters’ craft will also be ready to hang up in the school. Hmm…what design do you think they made? Stay tuned!

Halloween!

Halloween!

Spooky season may be over, but we are still fondly looking back at our Halloween celebrations.

Every year at International Language House, everyone is encouraged to come in full costume (handmade ones are encouraged!). Together, we walk around the immediate neighborhood for some trick-or-treating.

Once we return from our morning trick-or-treating, the school holds a stamp rally for parents and kids to enjoy together. We even perform some Halloween dances for everyone to see! This year’s songs were Orange Pumpkins and One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying Purple People Eater!

We also hold a fashion show, and each kid gets the chance to show off their costumes in front of everyone. Voting cards are passed out, and everyone votes for their favorite scary, funny, or unique costumes!

After lunch, the kids go in small groups upstairs to the HAUNTED HOUSE… If you’re brave enough to withstand the dark maze and scary creatures, you can escape through the back door down the slide! Phew!

Our teachers at ILH all love Halloween, and loved how excited our kids were to celebrate with us! We are already looking forward to next year!
