CIT and Internship Programs

ISB Summer 2020 Programs Canceled

We have made the decision to cancel ISB Summer programs for 2020. The decision to cancel these programs has been very difficult to make, as we balance our love of serving you and your children with maintaining the health and well-being of our ISB Summer community. We will be processing refunds for registered families and look forward to welcoming you in 2021!

Counselor-In-Training (CIT) Program

The Counselor-in-Training (CIT) program at ISB is designed to introduce rising 7th, 8th, and 9th graders to the world of being a summer program counselor in a language immersion setting. CITs will work alongside a summer teaching team, developing leadership and collaborative skills. Training dates will be scheduled prior to the start of the program.

Successful CITs are:

  • Bilingual in French/English or Spanish/English
  • Interested in working with young children
  • Enthusiastic, flexible, and comfortable in leadership roles
  • Willing to learn under the guidance of ISB Summer counselors and administrative staff

CIT Program Fees: $125 per week. Additionally, there is a non-refundable registration fee of $4.95 per session.

After completing registration, CITs will be required to complete a questionnaire about their summer goals, interests, and language learning background. Please note that there are a limited number of CIT positions available each week.

ISB Summer Internships

High school students (rising 10th-12th graders) are invited to apply for unpaid summer internships with ISB Summer’s Language Immersion program! ISB Summer interns will gain hands-on experience in a variety of fields while working closely with a teaching team and with administrative staff. Interns will be exposed to topics in areas such as teaching and classroom management, curriculum and activity planning, communications, program management, and language acquisition.

ISB is seeking interns with strong leadership, problem solving, and communication skills. Interns will be expected to take initiative, to remain flexible, and to serve as role models for children in the program. The ability to listen and collaborate with colleagues, both providing ideas and reflecting on outcomes, is essential. Functional fluency in French or Spanish is a plus, though not required.

 

“Same Sun Here”: the 5th Grade Winter Book Club

At the beginning of 2020, twelve ISB 5th Graders signed up to participate in a new Library initiative: a student book club. From late January to mid-March, the group met in the Library every Thursday afternoon. Students gathered over lunch to have conversations about a book selected by Head Librarian Maria Falgoust: Same Sun Here by Silas House and Neela Vaswani. The lively discussions and engaging activities that followed were co-facilitated by ISB parents and Library Committee members Shayna Wellington and Marianne Gimon and Associate Librarian Eli Hetko.

Student Action Brought Composting to ISB!

After three months of students consistently separating food waste from other trash, the habit of composting is now firmly established in the ISB Cafeteria.
