In a message 
to the parents, Olivier wrote, "All teachers participating sincerely enjoyed spending time with your children and doing fun activities with them. We were really impressed by their excellent behavior, fun personalities and self confidence spending the night away from home."

The tremendous amount of time and effort that went into this wonderful experience did not go overlooked.

"We've been already super pleased with ISTP in general but this is all the more reason we love ISTP. It means a lot to know that people like you are around; the whole school has had such a positive impact in the life of our children," first grade parent Jacqueline Pham-Imran praised.

Special thanks to the sleepover team: Olivier Monteil, Liz Evans, Mélanie Laporte, Jean-François Merckling, Jennifer Mudicka, Cécile Roques, and Chu Hsi Tseng.
