Executive Updates 2013

Beyond Basic Learning; The International School bring families, teachers and the community together through wholesome events. Listed below are some of the events through which we bring families together.

We host our annual Harvest Festival Fundraiser where literacy takes center stage through our classroom theme book by transforming the classrooms to depict the pages from the children’s book.

In the community, we support our neighbor, the Hoboken Museum at the Baby Parade where we are also a major sponsor. Our children frequently visit the Museum to engage in educational lessons as they learn about their community through the different exhibits.
In our classrooms, we enjoy a range of diverse celebrations that are spearheaded by our families. We encourage and love parent participation, which is one of the hallmarks of our program.

Along with the parent-breakfast and other fun filled activities, we consider these events part of how we embrace our families as well as our community.

Week of The Young Child Parade

It was absolutely incredible to see the Space Shuttle Enterprise fly over us as we held our annual “Week of The Young Child” parade.  What a wonderful parade it was! We started off the morning with marching band music in the classrooms to get ready for our parade.  Even my dog, Lag, wore a hat for the occasion.  The South location children chanted their schools cheer and banged instruments along the way.   The North location children sang songs while walking to the local TD Bank on Hudson and 14thStreet.  They were welcomed inside the branch and given crayons and coloring books.
