Superintendent's Message

Superintendent Dr. David Geeslin
A new year and a new semester at ISD will bring a wide array of unique opportunities to our school and community.

I am honored to announce that Gallaudet University’s President, Dr. Bobbi Cordano, will be ISD’s commencement speaker at our graduation ceremony on June 9th.  President Cordano will also be visiting our campus when we host the 2017 Gallaudet University Midwest Regional Academic Bowl Competition, February 23rd to 26th.

This year our spring play will be Hairspray. Our students and staff have already begun the hard work necessary to make this year’s production another huge success. Hairspray’s message of inclusion aligns perfectly with our school’s motto of Belong, Excel. Thrive.  I look forward to seeing our talented students bring this work to life on stage.

This spring will also take our students on new global adventures. ISD’s International Trip Club will be taking an international educational trip to explore the southwest Asian countries of Vietnam and Cambodia. Many thanks for the donations that made this trip possible for our students.

Our annual 5K Walk/Run will be held on May 7th. This event is a great way for our ISD families and community members to raise money for students while promoting healthy habits and having fun.

Please follow our social media pages and school website for updates and announcements. Thank you for allowing us to serve your family. I look forward to seeing you at our spring events.
