RSI Celebrates Dia de los Muertos!

Outside the Box – Christy Johnson
Students at the Renascence School International celebrated a Latin holiday, Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) on November 1st. The students learned that this is not a time to fear, but a time of remembrance for the generations before us and for those who are no longer with us.
There are four things that the Latin culture uses to remember their loved ones: Foto (photo), Vela (candle), Flor (flower) and Altar (altar). Some teachers had an ofrenda memorial set up in their classrooms and students enjoyed a variety of crafts based around this special holiday! Read More

Perfecting the Art of Chinese Calligraphy

Outside the Box – Christy Johnson

The L70 students spent some time practicing calligraphy during Chinese class. The students really enjoyed writing their names and creating sentences using the vocabulary words that they have been working on in class. They used a special magical paper and water to eliminate the worry of ink spills! There was much fun and laughter as well as time spent focusing on learning to perfect the art of calligraphy!

Thirteen incredible years at RSI and feeling very prepared!

cover

My daughter completed her 13th year at Renascence School International this spring. The education system not only provided her with fluency in three world languages and advanced academic preparation in math, science, and the humanities; but encouraged her seek and embrace opportunity. We are particularly proud that she loves learning, easily converses with her peers and adults, is creative, and enjoys negotiating on her own. She is looking forward to attending Stanford University in the fall. Thanks Renascence! Read More
