Santa Charity Run raises 18.000 kronor for Astrid Lindgrens Barnsjukhus

Santa Charity Run raises 18.000 kronor for Astrid Lindgrens Barnsjukhus

On Saturday, December 12, IES Länna held its second-ever charity run, this time choosing to donate money to Astrid Lindgrens Barnsjukhus in Stockholm. In spite of the pandemic and the stress that always accompanies the end of a term, we had amazing participation and support from students, staff, parents and IES colleagues. Through our efforts that day, we were able to raise 18.000 kronor for the cause! 

As always, I'm proud to lead such a grateful, selfless group of people. Together, we can spread kindness and "be the good" our society and world need.

Monthly Parent Session: Building Empathy

Monthly Parent Session: Building Empathy

At IES Länna, we believe strongly in the involvement of parents in our daily work. To better help our parents understand what our goals are, how we are working, and what they can do to support their child at home we host informational (and usually interactive) sessions each month. Unfortunately, due to the current restrictions surrounding COVID-19, we are unable to have interactive, in-person sessions. However, our first ever digital parent session has seen huge success and we are able to continue our collaboration between home and school. 

During September, we have been working with the topic of empathy. Our presentation, linked here, has information and tools for parents (and educators) to help our children build empathy to use not only as children and teenagers, but to take into society as adults.

20 for 2020 (what's left of it, anyway)

20 for 2020 (what's left of it, anyway)

I was inspired by a podcast called "Happier" by Gretchen Rubin where a "20 for 2020" list was created: 20 things to accomplish in the year 2020. Yes, I know it's September, but I also know that this year has gotten a negative reputation. And what better way to turn that around than to make some positive changes in our final few months?

Here is my "20 for 2020" list. I left three goals blank and am getting great feedback from students, colleagues, parents and staff from other IES schools. Check out Gretchen's website here for ideas and resources!
