A Community Effort

This weekend’s festivities illustrated how our community is strong and more than able and willing to create an amazing experience for our children in spite of minimal resources and diverse opinions and points of view. Many thanks are due to everyone who participated starting with Friday’s assembly. The talent of our children was showcased by staff and faculty who provided examples of the children’s artistic, academic and creative abilities. 

Saturday was filled with a flurry of activity on the part of parents who transformed the school, problem-solved logistical and facility problems and showed creativity beyond measure. The festivities were fun; family centered and provided something for everyone. The middle school activities gave the adolescents a chance to bond through adversity and prove their courage while raising questions of loyalty and belief. The ideas and conversations raised by the Zombie disco will provide material for discussions both at home and at school for weeks to come and will soon become ISR legend. Thanks to all who engineered this event and especially Suzie Nileshwar and Joanie Sullivan who provided leadership for these endeavors.
