The Class Schedule
Our School Age Children’s Program runs from 1:30 pm until 5:00 pm. Our Class Groups rotate around our Areas of Study in forty-minute periods and have a thirty-minute break for the Pilipino snack time called “Merienda.”
We start IP Sessions with a general assembly of our entire community and student body. Together at the beginning of each assembly, we sing the Philippine National Anthem (Lupang Hinirang) and our IP School Hymn. Then, we make announcements related to the day’s schedule and upcoming school activities.
Rondalla Class Groups meet before and after the regular IP Class Schedule, depending on the group. More information about the rondalla’s schedule can be found here.
The School Calendar
At the beginning of each academic year, we release Class Schedules and the School Calendar to all registered families. Generally, we meet 2-3 Sundays per month and begin classes in early or mid-September and finish the academic year in May with our Graduation Ceremony.
During the summer, we have a few events, such as Rondalla performances, Dance Performance Team performances, and additional community outreach. Additionally, our entire community participates in our largest annual fundraiser at Lowell Folk Festival in July.
