From the Director's Desk
Happy Holidays! It is hard to believe that the first semester is now over. It has been a great start to the school year, and I have thoroughly enjoyed becoming part of the IST community.

We will return to school on January 8th rested, recharged and ready for an excellent second semester of learning!
