This October was full of great events including Fright Fest at Six Flags Magic Mount and the ISC Halloween party. At the Halloween Party, we enjoyed many festivities including movies, games, food, and a concert performed by a group of our visual and performing arts students. They provided fantastic entertainment while displaying their skills to our packed lounge.
This month also kicks off the holiday season! We have many great things planned for ISC students to feel the holiday spirit this season. In November, we are having our Thanksgiving Pie Party. And, soon after, the ISC Holiday Party kicks off the Holiday Break with a holiday feast and karaoke! The end of 2019 is looking bright for all ISC students!
