The following goals are embedded into the Elementary School Co Curricular Activities Program.

Students have the opportunity to learn the fundamental skills of several sports and learn in a cooperative environment. Included in the sports program are:

Students are introduced to a variety of martial arts including karate, tae kwondo and judo.
They learn self-discipline and improve their physical coordination while interacting positively with their friends.
Dance and Movement
Our dance and movement activities are based on a fun introduction to creative movement. The program is designed to build a positive self-image through a healthy lifestyle, increased focus, self-confidence, and improved coordination
Arts and Crafts
Students have the opportunity to make a variety of arts and crafts that enhance their fine
motor skills and build a spirit of teamwork. These activities include, for example pottery, weaving, drawing, origami, knitting, tapestry, beading and painting.
Students also have an opportunity to develop new academic skills or improve on skills they are already learning in the classroom. These may include drawing, reading, key boarding and analytical skills through the following clubs.
- Story telling
- Board games
- Homework helper
- Graphic design
Students in grades 4 and 5 who work on the yearbook learn about photography, journalism, layout & design. Members interact with the High School yearbook class to create the official ISK yearbook.
Service and Leadership
This part of the co curricular program has two activities: Peer Helpers and PRIDE. Peer Helpers are students who help ensure that new and returning students find their place quickly at ISK. Students who belong to PRIDE brainstorm ideas on how to improve leadership qualities through service learning projects.
