KIS Fall Art Exhibition 2017

The Fall Art Exhibition, “Chroma,” will be on display in the Conference Hall on November 13-16. This annual art show celebrates the accomplishments of the PK-12th grade students this semester/trimester. With the theme of Chroma (an intense quality of color), students were challenged to bring their experiences and ideas into an array of different colors. On November 14th, fellow classmates, faculty, and parents are welcome to come to the reception in the Conference Hall at 3:15 – 4:45 PM. MS PTO will be having a snack sale as well.

 Opening Reception: Tuesday, November 14th, 3:15-4:30 pm.

Continuing with the tradition of having a Service Learning project within this exhibition, ES, MS, and HS students have collaborated in creating a coloring book. We wanted to apply our art skills in a real-world context while also helping out our local community. Partnering with the Actions of Compassion club, all of our proceeds will be donated to the Nabiya cat shelter.

The Fine Arts department hopes to see you at this exhibition and buy a coloring book!

The KIS PTO’s Annual Event ‘Songpyeon Day’ successfully finished on Friday, September 29th, 2017. KIS PTO celebrated the Korean Thanksgiving holiday, Chuseok, by providing “songpyeon” during lunchtime. Our students enjoyed the treat and our KIS PTO parent volunteers had a great time serving songpyeon. Thank you to all our fantastic parent volunteers, especially to those that prepared and planned the event, as well as those that made it even more festive by wearing their traditional Korean dresses, “hanboks”!  In addition, due to the Kim Young Ran Anti-Graft Law, the school provided Songpyeon for teachers and staff this year.

KIS  PTO의 연례행사인 ‘송편데이’ 가 9월29일 금요일점심시간에 있었습니다.  학부모님들께서 학생들에게 송편과 식혜를 나눠주셨습니다. 이 행사를 위해 준비하고 수고해주신 모든 자원봉사 학부모님들과,  한복을 입고 행사를 의미있고 특별하게 만들어주신  학부모님들께 깊이 감사드립니다.  참고로 김영란청탁금지법으로 인해서 올해는 스태프와 선생님들의 송편은 학교에서 제공을 해주셨습니다.

What is Experiential Education?

Dear KIS parents,

Enjoy the EE Trip Highlights Video!

This Video“What is Experiential Education?” is an overview of Experiential Education at Korea International School.  Since 2012, over 20 trip leads from grades 4-12 have organized trips in the fall and spring around Korea focusing on the following 4 pillars: service, applied learning, intercultural proficiency, and self-discovery.

Big thanks to Mr.Johnston and all the teachers who have worked hard to provide unique experiences to help our students grow as a person outside of the classroom.
