Dear ISD Community,

ISD School Board Elections 2016 
ISD Needs your vote! Four ISD parents are running for election to serve on the ISD Board of Trustees. A personal link to vote online was sent to all ISD association members (parents and guardians of students, and faculty) from electionbuddy (our e-voting service provider) last Friday 8 April. If you haven’t yet voted, please click on the link to vote in less than one minute. Your vote counts!

Annual General Meeting of the ISD ASSOCIATION 
The ISD Association will hold its Annual General Meeting next Thursday 21 April 2016, starting at 6.00 pm in the ISD gym. Refreshments (courtesy of the Abracadabra catering company) will be served from 5:30 pm and babysitting services will be provided.
All ISD parents and guardians and faculty are cordially invited to attend the AGM. Come and hear about your school: how school leadership is structured and what it focused on this year, parent feedback on ISD, how the school uses its budget, and its development plans for the next few years. The AGM is also an opportunity for the school to thank various staff and faculty members for their service and dedication to ISD.
