Staff Appreciation Week:
a celebration of our entire faculty & staff

May 6 through 10 is National Teacher Appreciation Week. At ISI, we extend our celebration to our entire faculty and staff, as it is the collective effort of our entire team that makes our school so special! ISI parent volunteers will work on behalf of all parents to be sure that faculty and staff are recognized each day of the week.  Families can participate by making a monetary contribution, volunteering, or contributing notes of appreciation to ISI faculty and staff. Volunteers will help decorate staff lounges, sort and distribute notes of appreciation, and help serve during catered meal days.

Thank you to the ISI Parent Association for their leadership in this year's Staff Appreciation Week!

The following outlines the activities planned for the week:

Stock the Lounge: Staff lounges in all three buildings will be stocked with a variety of healthy snacks, treats, and beverages. 

Gift Cards: Staff will receive a gift card from one of their favorite restaurants or stores. 

Notes of Appreciation: The ISI community is invited to submit notes of appreciation to any ISI faculty or staff member. Submission boxes will be located in the lobby of each building. You are welcome to drop off a personal note of appreciation or use the provided template. A list of our faculty & staff can be found here.

Catered Lunch: Faculty and Staff will enjoy a pre-selected catered lunch in their building’s Staff Lounge one day during Staff Appreciation Week. 

Snack/Treat Day: Faculty and Staff will enjoy a pre-selected snack and assortment of treats in their building’s Staff Lounge one day during Staff Appreciation Week. 

ISI parents generously thank faculty throughout the year, and this year’s Staff Appreciation Week activities have been organized to allow parents to collaborate across grade levels and language tracks to ensure that every member of the ISI team is equally recognized for their contributions throughout the year!
