    ISW Cultural and Language School News

    Hindi 4 Students compile a Magazine

    The Hindi 4 students of ISW Culture and Language School created a magazine in Hindi as part of their year-end project. Students worked on different articles that included a poem, sport's article, cartoon, crossword puzzle, a story and multiple translated recipes. They typed their articles in Hindi using Google Hindi transliteration. We hope the eSandesh readers will enjoy this magazine and appreciate the hard work put in by these budding Hindi writers!

    ISW Cultural and Language School Annual Day 2020

    On May 24, we had our first online ISW Annual Day program. It lasted more than three hours with each class joining in for an assigned 15 minute time slot. It was very successful, and we were happy that we could recognize the kids and their hard work. Carolyn mailed individual certificates to over 100 student’s homes. They were presented to the student by their parents at the end of each session. It added the perfect touch. We were fortunate to have grandparents and relatives join in from India and across the US. Congratulations to Abhiram and Aaryan for graduating Hindi 4 and for their acknowledgement speeches. We really are excited that we were able to complete our academic year virtually and with style. Kudos to all the teachers, parents and parents who supported our Webex calls and, of course, the students who made it possible. You can see some of the graduation Webex photos below

    Namaste.  Here are the details for ISW Annual Day Sunday May 24, 2020.  We need your support for this program, since we are all new to online meeting format, (fingers crossed). 

    (a)School certificates have been prepared by Carolyn Passey and mailed Monday May 18 to your homes PLEASE PLEASE hide it from your kids, and present it only to them when their name is called  

    (b) Please use  laptop or ipad to login and not the phone, download webex before meeting

    (c) The list of 116 student names & time slots  is saved at this link below

    https://iswonline.org/Language-School-Blog

    (d) Change name on screen from your email label to your child name to reflect the Child's Name and teachers name as per the green and red group list  This way we can call on them during their class time slot


    (e)Please only login during your 15 mins time slot  not for the whole 90 mins. Each class will have approx 15 mins with their teachers, it may move faster or may be delayed, so do be there on time.We have scheduled meeting for 4 hours, but you have to be there only for your  timings. Teachers are welcome for all slots. I was hoping we could have everyone attend, however my webex account does not let me 'pin' only 14-15 kids at a time If you are not attending, its ok, we will just wait and move to the next time slot, no stress


    (f) Emcee will be Ruchi, helped by each teacher. For online meeting issues, call Shiamin 508-353-4316

    Huge Thank you to Carolyn for preparing and mailing the certificates  and to all the teachers this year & our webex/zoom parents.  We also say bye to Ragini, as she moves to Houston in July 2020, after a couple of decades at ISW School

    Beena K has also prepared the attendance prize list

    Take care

    Neena, Beena, Sonia, Ruchi and Shiamin

    ISW Language school went online.

    With the help of parent volunteers, who provided the technical support, we organized each class into 15 class-based WhatsApp groups for parent teacher communications and Zoom, WhatsApp Google Hangout, and Webex for online sessions. Our amazing teachers held individual online sessions at different times over the weekend and the response has been extremely positive.
