ISQ Christmas Celebration:

Thank You Volunteers and Sponsors

ISQ PTO would like to thank all of our parent, staff, and student volunteers for helping to make our Christmas event possible last Saturday. We truly could not have done it without all of you!

We’re so thankful that we had this opportunity to see one another face to face, to have some fun, to share a great meal, and to share the joy of Christmas after a difficult year.

We would also like to thank our sponsors that gave generously to help us raise funds for Tongxing School for Special Needs Children & Families, even though they knew that they wouldn’t be able to join us at the event due to COVID restrictions.

We hope everyone that attended enjoyed it as much as we did!

We wish you all a blessed Merry Christmas and a Happier & Healthier New Year!

Middle School Drama

Listen and Enjoy their Radio Show

Our MS Drama students’ first project this semester was a live performance of a radio show called “The Invisible Man” during Middle School Assembly.

Our drama team’s performance was entirely student produced - directed by one of our students, with voice actors driving the suspenseful plot forward, and all the sound effects made by a team of middle schoolers.

And now, just like when radios were popular, our middle schoolers performance can be enjoyed from home by playing the audio file below. We encourage you to also view “behind the scenes” while listening to the audio file.
