Each year, a select group of grade five students compete in the annual Knowledge Masters Open. In this activity schools from all over the world take a test that covers all core subject areas. The competitors meet after school once per week to increase their knowledge base and practice the art of group testing. Our teams score consistently among the top schools in the International Elementary School Division.
ES Extra-Curricular Music Program
A variety of extra-curricular music programs operate during lunch for Elementary students. SIS has been fortunate in recent years to offer to students the opportunity to become part of various music groups such as:
Suzuki, Violin Level: Twinkle I, II and III I, II, III, IV, V and solos
Suzuki Cello: Intermediate and Advanced
Elementary Band (4th and 5th Grade)
Primary Choir (1st and 2nd Grade)
Junior Choir (3rd through 5th Grade)
Students may join more than one musical group if they meet all the requirements and have no timetable conflicts. An enrollment form will be sent home by the music department at the start of each new school year.
The school Spirit Club is a new activity at the Elementary school designed for students from grade four through grade five. The Spirit Club seeks to establish activities, programs and team building strategies to further enhance the sense of community at SIS. The club will develop various activities throughout the school year to promote school cheer, sponsor charity service projects and promote “School Spirit Day” celebrations. This activity is perfect for students who enjoy being a part of a team and collaborating with others.
