Congratulations to Mr. Steve Montgomery who was elected as a board representative at the AGM on December 5th.

From the PYP Student Council:

The PYP student council has organized a photo contest, with a nature-based theme, where the winning selections will be displayed near the entrance of the school. All submissions must be from our school’s playground, or the park just behind the school. This competition closes today, Dec. 7th.
The student council is also organizing an end of a semester movie theatre, where they have selected two holiday-themed movies, one for the younger PYP students and the other for the older PYP students. They have decided to charge 2 euros in order to raise some money to put towards a project that is to be determined. The 2 euro will get each child a bag of popcorn and a juice box for the movie.

Giving Tree 

Thank you so much to everyone who has taken ornaments from the tree to prepare a gift. The ornaments are all gone. Please bring the gift to school by December 12. Please attach the same ornament to the gift.  
We are still collecting food. The food should be either dry like pasta, noodles, porridge, or well packaged, like conserves, jars, etc.
Please put the food in a separate box from the gifts, there will be name tags on the boxes, is either for the food or the gifts!
The boxes for the food and gifts are next to the tree. Please leave the food and/or gifts there by Dec 12. 
Thank you,
ISE Middle Years Estonian Class 1&2!

MYP 1 & 2 Service Learning Project

There is a donation box moving around during break and lunch every Friday until the end of January. We also have a donation box located near the School's entrance. This will give the MYP 1&2 classes a chance to help fund our 2019 Service Learning Activity for the VAO Center. At VAO we plan to visit the refugees from other countries, donate needed supplies, and help work in their garden so we can make a difference little by little. Please donate what you can.


End of the 1st semester 

Please note that this school year the first semester ends on January 25th, 2019 after Winter Break. First Semester Report Cards will be released on January 28th.
MYP and DP families, please be aware that summative assessments and tests are taking place during the first weeks after the break. Therefore, we kindly ask families not to extend the holidays in January. 

Daily bell schedule and 2018-19 calendar

Please find the daily bell schedule here and school year 2018-19 here.


When venturing out in the dark, take a cue from the locals and wear a reflector. It is a small piece of plastic or fabric that makes pedestrians visible to oncoming traffic. The concept was first invented in 1934 by British road worker Percy Shaw, who was inspired by the reflective qualities of cats' eyes. Virtually all children and over two-thirds of local adults wear reflectors, largely due to a 2011 law that requires their use in darkness and conditions of poor visibility. Please note that the traffic police may issue a fine if you do not wear a reflector. ISE reflectors can be bought from the school office for 3€ a piece.
