Academic vocabulary is a focus at SIS this year.  Each week, a new word is introduced. Teachers and students incorporate the word of the week in their lessons and activities.

Students may submit sentences using the word of the week. If a student's sentence is selected to share, it is read on the morning announcements and the student receives an ice cream coupon.

Words are posted in the hallways and on a bulletin board as well as on the website.
