Missing the Mercuries?

Missing the Mercuries?

Tomorrow we welcome in our current ILH students for our Moving-Up Ceremony. How exciting to be in the next grade!

Wednesday will be our first gathering of the new Jupiter class. There will be a lot of new faces (maybe some crying ones) to get to know!

As we are thinking of all this change in our first week back, it’s easy to miss last year’s Mercury class as they move on to elementary school.

Here is a video of this past year’s Mercury class during their last field trip with ILH.

For upcoming Mercuries, this may be what your class experiences, too! Look forward to it! 🙂

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!
