ISM is a busy and vibrant school and we wish to ensure that each student feels welcome in the school community, one way we achieve this is by hosting a wide array of events throughout the school year. Our school events range from sporting events, community outreach, and talent shows to performances, art extravaganzas, retreats, and everything in between, and allow our students to interact, build friendships, and make unforgettable memories.
Read on to explore some of our most anticipated events, starting with our Husky Bash.
The Husky Bash kicks off the school year at ISM by inviting both new and current families to reconnect on campus and prepare for the start of another school year. It serves as a lively opportunity for families to meet teachers, create new friendships, and learn essential information about the upcoming year all while enjoying delicious food and having fun! The Husky Bash sets the stage for an exciting and successful year ahead.
Each year, ISM’s campus transforms into a multicultural experience highlighting international cuisine, customs, cultural performances, educational opportunities, and interactive activities for our annual International Day celebration. This family-friendly event is open to our ISM community and the public – we invite you to join us at the next one!
The spring musical is an opportunity for students in grades 1 to 12 to get acquainted with performing arts or hone their craft as veteran performers. With opportunities for students on and off the stage, the musical is always a highlight of talent, dedication, and drive. Our performance repertoire includes spectacular renditions of Frozen, The Lion King, Shrek, Mary Poppins, The Little Mermaid, Seussical, and so much more! It has also been a spring-board for students’ future success in theater, television and movies.
Trunk or Treat & All School Concert
Trunk or Treat is a wildly popular event organized annually by Friends of ISM. This all school gathering allows students and community members to embark on a trick-or-treating adventure, one trunk at a time. After the treats come the musical talents of our students in grades 1 to 12 performing in our All School Concert.
ISM believes in providing enriching experiences that extend beyond the classroom. To support this, travel opportunities are organized including class and student trips, competitions, conferences, and summer camps.
School Break Trips
Every year, various trips are organized for our students during spring and summer breaks. Most recently, our High School students toured New York City over spring break and are already looking forward to a 2024 summer European adventure.
Our Middle School students also enjoyed the historically rich Washington DC on their annual trip.
