Director’s message 45


In Lower School:

On Friday, our Kindergarten and First Graders welcomed Ms. Catherine Cruz into their classroom, as their new instructional leader, along with Ms. Mariama Diallo. Ms. Cruz was unfortunately delayed due to PCR issues.

This week, fully refreshed, she is ready to get to know her little friends much better, and looks forward to seeing you at our Open House on September 7th.

While in Upper School…

We welcomed to Grade 9, our two new scholarship students. This program was established in the early 2000’s, and according to the history section on our website:

During this decade, the scholarship program at ISO was initiated by Director Larry Ethier. This program made it possible for 2 students each year from the Burkinabe community to receive an academic scholarship based on their own high academic achievements up to grade 8 in a local school. Larry was decorated by the Minister of Education in the Spring of 2008 for his initiatives. This program continues to this day with 2018-2019 graduates Roxane Somda and Parfait Kabore attending Stanford and Colgate Universities on full scholarships
