An annual tradition at The International Preschools is to honor those members of the staff who have spent a significant amount of years as employees of our school. Faculty, administration, and staff members who have completed five, ten, fifteen, twenty, twenty-five, and thirty years (and beyond!) as part of the IPS community are celebrated each year at the Annual Benefit. This year, the IPS milestone recipients will receive special recognition at the Annual Benefit, taking place at the Yale Club on Friday, February 1st. They will also attend a luncheon later in February in their honor. Continue reading to find out who will be honored this year!
Every year, The International Preschools hosts its annual benefit, which will take place this year on Friday, February 1st, 2019, at the Yale Club in New York City. Here, parents, teachers, and staff come together to celebrate our wonderful school with food, drinks, socializing, and music, as well as both a silent and live auction to raise money for our school. To honor the many cultures represented by IPS families, the Annual Benefit’s theme each year centers around a particular country, including its food, music, and traditions; this year, the Annual Benefit’s country theme is France!
“We don’t inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.” This meaningful quote from David Brower perfectly describes how The International Preschools’ community feels about taking care of the Earth. We, as teachers, staff members, and parents, strive to take care of the Earth through modeling for our children and students, so that they too can take care of the Earth for their children.
Every spring, The International Preschools hosts a Spring Benefit here in New York City. Faculty, administration, current and former IPS parents, and friends gather to support our school in a variety of ways.
Each year, the benefit has a special theme, usually with a multicultural motif. Cuisine, clothing, and music at the event represent the chosen theme (much like the teachers facilitate with each month’s classroom subjects!). During the first part of the evening, the IPS community enjoys great food and drink and mingle with each other.
