If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?" Percy Bysshe Shelley
I hope this finds you doing well on yet another snowy evening. Today, as big flakes began to drift down just before the first recess began, I overheard a student yelling “Yay, it’s snowing” as she ran outside to play. I am quite sure that you all feel the same way. :)
Thank you for everything you do to make ISLA an amazing school and community!

What better way to finish off the snowiest February on record than to be dazzled by an exhibition of young ISLA talent. Yesterday, at the 4th annual Idolos de ISLA talent show, students from 1st to 6th grade were real risk takers as they performed a variety of acts that included piano and ukulele solos, aerial silk acrobatics, shadow and pom dancing, hula-hoop tricks, song interpretations, gymnastic routines and more. Thank you to all the students who tried out and participated. A special thank you to the sixth grade Idolos de ISLA committee, Sra. Rayo, Sra. Yepes and Sr.Gonzalez for their work in making this happen.
