Dear parents and students,
We are happy to announce our Annual Spelling Bee Contest. The Spelling Bee is a spelling contest where contestants of the same grade level compete together in orally spelling words from an assigned list. Though student performance in the spelling bee does not count towards grades, it is a motivational competition that our students get very excited about!! The Spelling Bee is divided into three rounds:
The First Round (in class) 10 th – 14th December
In this round students of the same class compete together using spelling lists they have already studied in the English Language and Literature classes. All words encountered in spelling and vocabulary lessons in term 1.
You can refer to mid semester exam study guide. Winners from each class move on to the second round.
The Second Round (in class) 17th – 20th December
In this round the 10-12 candidates from each class are then filtered using words they have seen in Science, Social Studies and Math. Students will be given a study list.
After this round, two students from each class will be left to compete in the third and final round.
The Third Round (grade level round – School Theater)
In this round the winners from each class in the same grade level will compete together in order to announce the winner of the grade level. In this stage the winner from each class will receive the assigned list to prepare for an onstage competition! This round will be held in the EAIS Theater on February 20th, 2018 Parents and colleagues are invited to attend this event! You’ll receive more information as the date approaches.
Best of luck!!
As we carry on our EAIS charity projects we still continue instilling lifelong lessons in our students.
– Responsibility, Citizenship, Caring, and Consideration for the misfortunate
– Planning, Management, Cooperation, and Communication
With our next project we hope to teach our students the following skills:
– Marketing, Advertising, Pricing, Budgeting, Calculating Cost and Profit
We are excited to announce the EAIS Garage Sale on Thursday December 21. Earnings will help with the costs of the EAIS production of “The Wizard of OZ’, the proceeds of which will be donated 100% to a hospital in need.
The entire EAIS community (students, parents and teachers) are being asked to donate:
– Gently used and good quality items to sell (clothes, accessories, home ware, sports equipment, books, stationary, bags, glasses, etc).
– Handmade products of students (arts & crafts, bracelets, etc)
All items will be priced at basic prices and displayed for sale for the entire EAIS community.
*Students who submit their handmade products will have the priority in helping to sell during the Garage Sale – so please make sure to mark your name with your GDS.*

EAIS is excited to announce that we will open admissions for the 2018-19 academic year for Grade 4 ONLY.
*Application fee is non refundable*
At ELS we aim to teach for life beyond academics. For this reason, charity and community service are a cornerstone in raising students to become responsible citizens.
Through organized charity and community service programs our students’ learning includes but is not limited to
– project management
– decision making
– critical thinking and reasoning
– public speaking and presentation skills
This is of course in addition to instilling the core sense of responsibility for those less fortunate than themselves in the community.
Each of the ELS campaigns is student run and guided by mentor teachers and staff.
The following are the 5 ELS campaigns for the 2017-18 academic year.
1) Donate to Educate (November)
This campaign aims to raise money for governmental students in the surrounding area to pay to sit for government exams.
2) Hospital Donation (October – March)
Students literally work to raise money for this campaign. Via a weekly school canteen and an organized Garage Sale students plan, fundraiser for, and produce their own play. Additionally grade 9 students organize an annual themed carnival. All profit from the plays and carnival are donated 100% to the hospital chosen.
3) Orphan Drive (February – April)
The ELS community donates new toys, clothes, and packed food to various local needing orphanages. Students help to organize, package and deliver the donations.
4) Kolena Mesa7araty (February – May)
This is a grand scale Ramadan bag campaign that targets specific rural areas. Students collect donations, buy items in bulk, and the entire school community helps pack and distribute the bags.
5) Dolab El Kheir (April)
Through this campaign ELSians remember the less fortunate by collecting quality second hand clothing for distribution before Eid. Students help organize and package the clothing donations.
Note the timeline of the projects above and mark them on you calendars. Together, the ELS community can make a tremendous change
