The Pursuit of Leisure

It's been a busy two weeks at ILS since school ended for the year. Faculty and staff gathered last week to reflect on the year past, plan for the year ahead, and simply enjoy one another's company. Our work week included a number of enriching and engaging opportunities. Most importantly we gathered for Matins, led by Pastor Esget. Mrs. Hull led us in a session where we were prompted with questions to help us grow in the classroom and in our relationships with students and parents. Miss Clevenger prepared a hands-on exercise, challenging our notions of what beautiful and inspiring classrooms look like. Mrs. Winterstein led our final session on the pursuit of leisure.
