Next week, the Usborne Book Fair will return to Dembego 12 & 18!
There will be plenty of wonderful books to choose from. Books for reading, coloring, puzzles, and more! Each class will have an opportunity to visit the book fair and browse what is available for purchase. Miss Aneta and the teachers will help students choose appropriate books for their level and interests.
If you would like your child to purchase books, please provide your child with money for the book fair. Most of the books range between 40 and 80 PLN. For more details contact Veronica Krawiec on firstname.lastname@example.org (D12) or Melissa Roginski on email@example.com (D18)
*Please note that the process will be a bit different this time around. *
Students will NOT take any books home on the day of the book fair. Instead, they will prepare a wish list of their desired books. If you would like to purchase some or all of the wish list books, students will return the wish lists and appropriate amount of money to Ms Veronica/Ms. Roginski by March 29th.

D18 Art contest
Ms. Bonkowska is back again with another Art contest! This week she announced the Spring Art Contest with a theme: “If hope was a creature, how would it look like?”. The details are in the poster prepared by our amazing student vice-president Darya. We look forward to seeing your latest artistic inspirations.
We are delighted to announce a new club is being formed, led by Milena Dederko (co-president) and Aleksandra Iwanczak of 11th grade and supervised by Ethan Ruby
Their goal is to invite TEDx to have a talk at IAS and one of the application requirements is for us to have our own speech and current events club at school. They have already held their introductory meeting but are still welcoming any additional interested members. The focus for meetings will be speechwriting and public speaking practice in a low stress environment.
Anyone 8th grade and above is invited to come along to Room 13 on Thursdays at 15:20 if they would like to learn more
Anyone with questions can write to Milena, Aleksandra, or Mr. Ruby
D12 Theatre Trip
On Monday the students of grades 1-4 went to the Palladium Theatre to see a show called “The Magician”. They enjoyed a beautiful combination of magic, music and dance which added up to a memorable performance. Getting there on a metro was an additional adventure for all involved!
8th Grade Museum Trip
Ms. Katie and Ms. Sarah chaperoned the 8th Graders on a field trip to visit the POLIN Museum this week on Thursday, March 17th. The students absorbed loads of history of Jewish life, religion, and culture in Poland presented from the Jewish perspective. The trip included a visit to the temporary exhibition: Od Kuchni which showed typical dishes in Jewish Cuisine – their origins, symbolism, and how to prepare them. After viewing the exhibitions, the class enjoyed an authentic Jewish catered meal from the museum’s restaurant, WARSZE
