CEESA Cultural Arts Festival - May 9-12

We are in a desperate need of hosting families. Please help us to make this event a success and support our students to participate in different international events as well. If we don´t host, our students can´t participate either.
Thank you if you have signed up already.

This year ISE is hosting Middle School Cultural Arts Festival, May 9-12. During CEESA events, students are housed with families. To make the festival a success we would need help from the whole school. Please find here detailed information about housing.

ISE "Shark Tank"

Greetings ISE parents, teachers, and students!
As you all probably know, one of the PTA’s goals, through fundraising efforts, is to be able to donate funds to purchase educational materials, equipment and support other school activities.
We are thrilled to announce that this year we will hold the very first ISE “Shark Tank”. In other words, the PTA invites parents, teachers, and students to submit Proposals for Investing PTA money. The presentations will be held on Tue, 9 April starting at 14:00.
The PTA has allocated a sum of 1,500 Euros to invest in different proposals that will benefit the ISE student body. Proposals can be submitted from parents, teachers, and students. You can find the format for the written proposals below.
We ask that written proposal submissions are emailed to by 2 APR. Once submitted, the PTA will give each proposal a time slot between 14:00-15:30 on 9 APR to make a presentation to the judges. Shark Tank presentations of proposals are limited to 5 minutes. The accepted proposals will be announced at the Art Auction on 12 April.
We are also looking for seven PTA/parents/school staff to volunteer as judges for this event on 9 April. If you are interested, please send an email to
Written Proposals are due April 2.
The proposal should have the following:
1. How do you propose to spend ISE PTA funds? (What do you want to buy?)
2. How will this purchase enhance life for the ISE student body?
3. How much will it cost?
4. What is the timeline for the expenditure of these funds?
5. Why should the PTA choose your proposal?
Kind regards,
Your PTA
