Grade 1 Visits the Joyful Learning Nature Center

On November 1, ISI grade 1 students traveled to Jennifer’s Forest and Joyful Learning Nature Center to spend a day outdoors, exploring nature and completing activities for their second Unit of Inquiry: “Sharing the Planet”. The central idea of the "Sharing the Planet" unit focuses on using natural resources in a useful way and teaches students what natural resources are and how we can use them responsibly.

This unit is a compassionate system unit, with a focus on the United Nations Global Goal for Sustainable Development #15 - Life on Land: Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss.

Throughout the unit, students spent time learning about forests, timber, trees, and deforestation. To gain hands-on experience to supplement what they are learning in the classroom, students spent a day at the Joyful Learning Nature Center, hiking in the woods, and learning about different types of trees, leaves, and nuts. Students also completed a nature scavenger hunt, played in the outdoor activity centers and enjoyed a picnic lunch.

The small but mighty ISI Girls Varsity Tennis team completed a successful spring season! The team spent the season working hard to improve, and every member played a crucial role in bringing home team victories. 

“My favorite memory from this season was our first team win,” Grade 9 player Veronica Sabau said. “Since we only had four people on the team, we needed each of us to win our matches in order to have a team win. This made winning extra special.”

This year, students built a multi-use court for basketball, soccer, and volleyball. They leveled the ground, mixed and poured concrete, created drainage systems, and finished the edges to make it safe for children. They also helped construct a well, cleaned up the school’s exterior and landscaping, and cleaned up the school’s fruit garden, which was previously unusable. Timmy Club members also brought basketballs and soccer balls for the community to keep, donated by the Pacers, Fever, and Indy Eleven teams
