THE FOOTPRINTS OF

INDIANHEAD As   the   'inal   days   of   the   school   year   approach,   everyone   is   thinking   about   graduation   and   summer,   but   few   are   re'lecting  on  the   past  days  of  IIS.   It  is   regretful   that   the   rich   history   has   faded   in   the   minds   and   spirits   of   the   students.   To  'ind  the  real   footprints   of  Indianhead  International  School,   the   journalism   team  went  to  our   school  historian,   Mr.  T,   to   listen  to   his  account   of  thirteen  years  at  IIS.   Indianhead   was   originally  a  smaller  school  established  for  students  from  the   military  bases.   At  the  time,   IIS  had  two  separate  campuses:  one  in   the  Shin   Heung   campus   and   another   in  Dong-­‐du   Chon   near   base.   The   school   name   “Indianhead”   derived   from   the   Indianhead   patches   sewn   into   the   military   attire.   However,   Mr.   T   says   that   he   was   not   enthusiastic   about   the   lack   of   teaching   materials   and   adequate   supplies   when   he   'irst  came  to  IIS.   Despite   these   conditions,   improvements   were   the   cornerstone   of   IIS’s   golden   days.   The   advent   of   advanced   placement   classes   and   Model   United   Nations   attracted   many   students.   Also,   by   creating   after   school   activities   and   festivals,   students   were   able   to   participate   and   enjoy   activities   after   hours  of  rigorous  studying.   Books   provided   the  opportunity   for  students  to  be   exposed   to   literature,   perhaps   to   torture   for   some   students.   With   these   changes,   the   college   acceptance   rate   of   students   doubled   throughout   the   years.   Along   with   the   improvements,   the   involvement  in  sports  marked  a   new   wave  of   excitement  at  IIS.   Not  only  has   it  become  the  most  popular  activity,  but  also  a  pride. IIS  has  always  been  a  small  school,  a  quality  that  allowed  the  school  to   maintain  a  family-­‐like  atmosphere.  In  fact,  the  small  community  has  brought   together  the  students,  the  teachers,  and  the  staff  members  since  the   beginning  years.  Also,  IIS  has  had  hard-­‐working  staff  members  who  were   always  committed  to  the  welfare  of  the  students  and  the  school.  They  were   the  heart  of  IIS  that  allowed  it  to  function.  Such  atmosphere  distinguished   IIS  from  other  international  schools  and  made  it  special. We  will  always  remember  the  great  footprints  that  IIS   has   left  behind   and   cherish  both  the   bitter  and  sweet   moments   we   spent  here.   The  spirit   of  IIS   will   live   on   forever   in   our   hearts.   Remember,   that   we   are   all   members  of  Indianhead.

Memories of IIS After  spending  one-­‐'ifth  of   my  life  at  IIS,  I  have  a  lot  of   memories.  The  thing  I  will   miss  most  is  my  friends— we  laughed  and  fought   together.  I  will  also  miss   my  friends  sleeping  on  the   couch  every  morning   when  I  arrived  at  school.  I   hope  my  friends  and  I  will   meet  up  in  the  future.   Thank  you  for  the   memories  and  I  love  you   all! Joseph  Han,  2010~2012

"What  I  will  take  away   from  Indianhead   International  School  are   the  moments  of  laughter,   excitement, wonder  and  amazement.   The  moments  of  Zen  that   happened  every  day  in   each  class  I  got  to  visit.  It is  the  smiles  on  faces  in   the  classrooms,  hallways   and  on  the  playground  that   I  will  remember  most.  It is  the  knowledge  that  we   continued  till  the  end,  and   we  can  say  with  pride,  now   that  it  is  over,  what  a ride!  Thank  you  IIS  for  the   joys  you  provided  for  all  of   us." -­‐Mr.  Ellis,  2008~2012

"Cada  vez  que  pienso  en   IIS,  se  dibuja  una  sonrisa   en  mi  cara.  IIS  es  una   escuela  muy  especial,   principalmente  porque  los   estudiantes,  profesores  y   empleados  son  como  una   familia  grande  y  acogedora   que  está  ahí  cuando  la   necesitas.  Siempre  tendrán   un  lugar  en  mi  corazón." -­‐Ms.  Lopez,  2008-­‐2011

“My  memories  of  IIS  are   'illed  with  lots  of  events   and  people  that  I  will   never  forget. Even  though  it's  the  end  of   the  school  year,   friendships  will  never   end.” -­‐Daniel  Kim,  2008~2012

NO GIRLS, NO LOVE, NO FUN Never  did  we  boys  feel  the  importance  of   girls  before  almost  the  entire  female   population  of  IIS  bid  farewell  and  left.   Never  did  we  boys  know  anything  about   the  devastating  drawbacks  of  a  girl-­‐ deprived  society.  With  the  98%-­‐male-­‐ dominant  student  body,  teachers  and   students  live  under  the  hair-­‐raising  terror   of  unabashed  farting  and  the  smell  of   sweat-­‐soaked  jerseys  in  classrooms.   October  2011  marked  the  beginning  of   IIS’s  no-­‐girl  catastrophe.  That  is  when  the   boys’  gas  leakage  started  to  'ill  our  lungs,   slowly  and  painfully.  They  did  not  stop,   but  continued  like  blizzards  and  went  off   like  unpredictable  time  bombs…  one…   TWO…  PBTTTT.  You  wouldn’t  be   surprised  to  learn  that  perfume  became  a   must-­‐have  item  for  all  the  teachers,  not  to   mention  clothespins.   Prom  and  dances  have  become  long-­‐ forgotten  legends.  What  about  Valentines   and  Pepero  Day?  They  are  just  another   normal  school  day.  Activities  like  Candy   Grams  faded  into  history  and  no  longer   do  we  celebrate  the  pink  days  of  IIS.  This   is  what  happens  when  the  entire  female   population  in  a  school  leaves.  Come  back   to  IIS,  revive  our  spirits  of  love,  and  please   do  away  with  the  choking  odor.  

Ms. Chong: IIS Heroine! You  cannot  talk  about  IIS,  without  talking  about   Ms.  Chong.  What  would  the  school  do  without   her?  Whenever  we  are  sick,  whenever  we  need  to   sign  in  or  out,  and  whenever  we  have  to  send   materials  to  universities,  Ms.  Chong  was  always   there  for  us.

Memories of IIS “Walking  up  the  hill from  the  subway  and   seeing  the  sun  rise  over   the  mountains.   Astonishment  on  students’   faces  when  they  grasp  a   new  math  concept.   Meeting  parents.  Ms.   Chong’s  always  gracious   demeanor.  Students   dressed  like  young   diplomats  at  MUN.  Six  girls   dancing  to  the  Beach  Boys’   Kokomo  at  a  spring  talent   show.  Staff  parties.   Christmas  concerts—it   was  like  angels  singing.   Spaghetti  day.  Students   saying,  “My  calculator   gives  me  wrong  answers.”   Fresh  snow  covering   school  grounds.  The  bird   nest  outside    my  window.   Quiet  cup  of  green  tea   during  my  free  period.  “ -­‐Mr.  T,  1999~2012

“IIS…  A  school  I  will  never   forget...  All  my  life  I  have   been  moving  from  one   school  to  another  every   year.  IIS  was  the  'irst   school  I  attended  for  more   than  a  year.  IIS  was  the   place  where  I  made  true   friends  that  were  kind,   talented,  humorous,  smart,   and  messed  up!  I  really   want  to  thank  my  friends   for  making  my  life  at  IIS   the  best  years  of  my  life.   They  made  the  Joong  Won   I  am  now…I  LOVE  YOU   GUYS!!!” -­‐Joong  Won  Pyo,  2010~2012

"When  I  graduate  from  IIS,   I  won't  have  to  wake  up  in   the  morning  with  sleepy   eyes  or  study  for  my   upcoming  test.  The  three   years  I  went  to  IIS  were   the  longest  and  most  fun   school  years  of  my  life,  and   I  will  miss  them.  We  will   all  leave  this  memories   behind  and  move  on  to   make  new  memories  of   our  own."

For  12  years  Ms.  Chong  has  supported  the   students  of  IIS  without  any  hesitation  or   resentment.  She  has  helped  dozens  upon  dozens   of  foreign  teachers  adjust  to  life  in  Korea. Her  dedication  to  IIS  helped  the  school  function,   and  without  her  we  would  be  lost.  From  all  of  us,   students  and  staff:  Thank  you,  Ms.  Chong!

Elementary School Memories “Please Mrs. Ellis! Please!” my students implored. As I looked from my whiteboard amass with fractions, Back to those beseeching faces, And then on through the window at the winter vista forming, My answer revealed itself in my glowing eyes. “Hurray!” they shouted as we ran out into a whirlwind of flurry, Instantly reaching to catch the magic with stretched tongues. We headed to the blanketed volleyball court. At first we stood in silence, not wanting to touch the blank canvas. Only seconds passed before we rushed forward, Sculpting with feet and hands and bodies. Angels appeared before us; little snowmen beckoned us onward. My mind reflected back to a game I played as a child. Pizza Tag! We quickly formed a procession in creating the enormous pizza. I lead my ducklings up and down making perfect sections to play tag along. Zipping along its lines, my students gasped! Fractions! Mrs.  Ellis,  2008-­‐2012

Indianhead's Best Team

Memories of IIS

Indianhead  International  School  has  had  many  intelligent  and  talented   coaches.  And  while  each  coach  contributed  to  the  school’s  athletic   department  in  distinctive  ways,  all  of  them  greatly  helped  in  advancing  the   school’s  athletic  reputation.  Due  to  the  great  leadership  of  IIS  coaches,   countless  athletes  were  able  to  achieve  their  full  potential  and  shine  in   KAIAC  Division  II  sports.  Starting  in  2006,  the  IIS  sports  department  began   to  'lourish  and  achieve  tremendous  success.  Among  all  the  incredible   coaches  who  brought  these  great   successes  to  the  IIS  Wolverines  over   the  years,  we  would  like  to  take  a   moment  to  highlight  two  of  the   school’s  most  recent  coaches  who  also   happened  to  be  married. Mr.  A  was  the  coach  of  the  IIS  boys’   varsity  sports  teams  from  2009  to   2011.  Everyone  in  the  school  knew   about  his  charisma  and  the  peculiar  aura  that  surrounded  him.  Although  Mr.   A  was  known  to  be  kind  and  humorous,  he  was  also  very  competitive.  He   expected  a  minimum  200%  performance  from  each  player  and  always   stressed  the  importance  of  teamwork.  Through  his  guidance  and  leadership,   students  learned  to  achieve  beyond  their  own  expectations  and  to  play  as  a   team.

"2008  to  2011  is  the  most   Memories memorable   time  of  mof y  lIIS ife.     I  met  such  nice  people  that   I  will  never  forget.  It  seems   impossible  to  get  into  any   school  that  will  have  this   intimate  relationship  not   only  with  friends  but  also   with  the  teachers.  Thank   you  all  for  the  support  and   love  that  made  me  grow  so   much.  I  will  miss  you  all.  I   will  miss  IIS." -­‐Rachel  Ro,  2008~2011

Mrs.  A  coached  the  girls’  varsity  sports  the   same  years.  She  was  passionate  about   coaching  the  Lady  Wolverines,  and  therefore,   she  trained  the  young  athletes  intensively.   She  showed  her  dedication  to  her  students   by  even  coaching  the  girl’s  volleyball  team   throughout  her  pregnancy.  Even  with  two   small  children,  she  continued  to  attend  games  and  cheer  for  the  Wolverines.

“My  IIS  adventure  is  about   to  end  after  an  intense   year.  I  still  remember  the   early  days  feeling   overwhelmed  because  I   was  surrounded  by   completely  unknown   teachers  and  students.  But   throughout  the  year  of   exploration,  I’ve   discovered  your  unique   personalities  and  smiles   which  made  me  enjoy   teaching.  I  am  taking  with   me  all  these  treasures   wherever  I  go,  and  they   will  make  me  smile  each   time  I  reopen  the  album.  I   am  thankful  and  happy  to   have  met  you!”

Known  as  the  A  Team,  Mr.  and  Mrs.  A  always  collaborated  in  coaching  the   teams.  This  collaboration,  even  off  the  court,  modeled  what  it  meant  to  be  a   team.  They  inspired  and  cheered  for  one  another  in  coaching  and  thus,  also   inspired  the  entire  school.  The  A  Team  also  demonstrated  what  it  meant  to   have  school  spirit  and  dedication  to  their  students.  

"What  I  will  never  forget   about  IIS  is  bulgogi.  And   Ms.  England's  sweet  voice   as  well  as  Mr.  Ellis's  sweet,   sweet  beard."

It  has  been  a  great  honor  for  IIS  athletes  to  participate  in  varsity  sports   teams  under  such  tremendous  leadership.  In  addition  to  amazing  coaches   such  as  Mr.  and  Mrs.  A,  a  sincere  thank  you  must  also  go  to:  Mr.  Jacobson,  Mr.   Kong,  Mr.  Morphew,  Mr.  Anderson,  Mr.  Syverson,  Ms.  Lopez,  Mr.  Welter,  and   Mr.  Youn.  You  all  made  signi'icant  contributions  to  the  success  of  the  IIS   sports  department.  Go  Wolverines!

"During  the  three  years  of   my  stay  at  IIS,  the  one   thing  that  I  adored  was  the   humorous  atmosphere   that  we  students  could   enjoy  while  studying."

Memories of IIS

On  April  28,  2009,  the  IIS  boys’  soccer  team  drew  a  stroke  in  KAIAC  Division   2  Boys  Soccer  Tournament  history  when  they  defeated  their  rival,  GSIS.   Everyone  expected  the  IIS  Wolverines  to  be  demolished  by  the  GSIS  Knights,   and  to  them,  the  outcome  of  the  game  was  predictable.  It  was  a  game   between  12  breathless,  mediocre  players  and  23  vigorous,  undefeated   players.  It  was  to  be  a  battle  between  David  and  Goliath,  and  everyone  knew   that  there  was  little  chance  the  Wolverines  would  beat  the  Knights.

"The  thing   that  made  of IIS  IIS so   Memories dear  to  my  heart  was  the   way  that  we  functioned  not   just  as  a  school,  but  as  a   family.    Especially  in  our   tiny  elementary  school,  I   felt  like  every  student  was   my  own,  and  I  had  a   personal  interest  in  what   The  game  turned  out  differently  than  expected  thought.  Although  GSIS  had  a   became  of  each  one  of   them.    This  sense  of   great  lead  in  ball  possession  (about  8:2;  8  for  GSIS  and  2  for  IIS),  IIS  led  the   closeness  is  hard  to  'ind  in   score.  The  GSIS  players’  countless   most  schools,  and  I  feel   shots  were  no  match  for  the   fortunate  to  count  “IIS   Wolverine’s  body  and  Captain   family  member”  as  part  of   Brian  Choi’s  face.  On  the  other   my  identity."

hand,  IIS  had  only  two  chances  to   score,  but  both  attempts  were   successful.  The  score  was  2:0  (IIS)   and  20  minutes  remained  before   the  end  of  the  game.

-­‐Ms.  Adams,  2009~2011

The  crowd  went  wild  and  everyone   cheered  for  IIS  and  to  see  the   greatest  upset  by  the  unbeaten   team.  However,  the  Knight’s  constant  shot  attempts  turned  the  game  to  2:1.   With  only  ten  minutes  remaining,  the  GSIS  players  attacked  'iercely.  After   'ive  minutes,  the  game  was  paused  due  to  a  heavy  downpour.  During  this   time,  Mr.  A  gave  an  inspirational  speech,  urging  students  that  they  could  win   the  game  so  long  as  they  remained  focused  until  the  'inal  blow  of  the  whistle.   The  game  resumed  and  Brian  shouted,  “Focus  IIS  until  the  end!  Finish   strong!”  The  IIS  Wolverines  kept  their  focus  and  hustled,  so  that  after  'ive   intense  minutes,  David  again  beat  Goliath!

"The  thing  I  will  probably   miss  the  most  is  IIS  itself.  I   will  remember  all  the   memories  I  had  at  IIS  from   pre-­‐k  to  eleventh  grade.  I   thank  all  the  teachers  for   their  support." -­‐Jeffery  Thompson,   1998~2012

Not  only  was  he  the  superstar  of  the  team,  but  he  also  led  the  team  as   captain  during  his  junior  and  senior  years.  Due  to  his  great  leadership  and   excellent  basketball  skills,  IIS  became  the  2009  Conference  Champions.     While  he  is  currently  the  P.E.  teacher  and  a  coach  at  IIS,  he  is  planning  to   attend  Trinity  International  University  on  scholarship  this  following   semester.  He  will  continue  playing  basketball  on  the  college  representative   team  as  he  studies  sports  management  at  the  university.  His  'inal  goal  is  to   enter  the  Korean  Basketball  League  after  graduating  from  college.

by  Mr.  T

My  classroom  was  once  a  battle'ield Where  the  clang  of  knights’  swords Filled  the  air.  Bishops  and  rooks  streaked Like  missiles  along  diagonals  and  'iles While  queens  wailed  like  banshees As  they  tore  down  pawn  walls  to  strike Tremulous  kings.  Now  forgotten,  they  lie In  a  box  like  an  assortment  of  dead  aliens From  a  black  and  white  planet.

Cell  phone  games  are  my  students’  new Passion  offering  mind  trinkets Like  Angry  Birds,  Fruit  Ninja, And  Temple  Run—gone  the  deep Thinking,  strategy,  and  gutsy Sacri'ices  of  chess—these  witless   Games  test  only  re'lexes  and  speed   Of  'ingers  and  thumbs.

Our  favorite  food,  our  long  history,  our  best  buddy  of  IIS!!!  Yes,  it  is  Bulgogi!   Bulgogi  has  been  our  companion  since  the  beginning  of  IIS.  All  alumni  have   tasted  the  unforgettable  sauce  of  Bulgogi,  but  have  you  ever  wondered  just   how  much  Bulgogi  we  have  eaten?   We  investigated  this  by  asking  IIS  students  to  guess  the  approximate  number   of  times  they  believe  they  ate  Bulgogi.  However,  since  the  student  population   of  IIS  is  small,  answers  varied  dramatically  from  student  to  student.  One   student  even  said  that  he  might  have  eaten  Bulgogi  as  many  as  40,000  times!   !

Using  our  intellect,  we  created  a  math  equation  to  guestimate  the  total   number  of  days  a  student  would  eat  Bulgogi  if  he  or  she  attended  IIS  from   K-­‐12  for  thirteen  years.  After  'iguring  out  the  total  number  of  days  in  a  school   year,  180,  we  then  multiplied  it  by  13  to  represent  the  total  number  of  years,   which  gave  us  the  total  number  of  school  days  of  over  thirteen  years  at  IIS.  We   then  divided  this  number  by  three,  to  represent  a  thrice-­‐a-­‐week  Bulgogi  meal.   Our  results:  If  you  had  Bulgogi  three  times  a  week  for  thirteen  years,  you   would  have  eaten  it  780  times! !

Bulgogi  is  not  quite  synonymous  for  IIS,  but  like  it  or  not,  Bulgogi  will  always   be  a  part  of  our  memories  of  IIS,  and  even  though  students  complain  about   how  much  Bulgogi  we  eat,  we  still  thank  Mr.  Mok  for  his  efforts  to  serve  our   lunch  every  day.  We  will  never  forget  the  greatest  chef  of  IIS.    Thank  you,  Mr.   Mok!

FINAL ISSUE

Memories of IIS "IIS  has  brought  me  tons  of   unforgettable  moments that  I  will  carry  throughout   my  lifetime.  Moments like  when  I  preformed   “Animal”  on  stage  with Jason  Youn,  Jacob  Lee,  and   Joongwon  Pyo.  Other performances  like   “American  Idiot”  or  “Party   Rock  Anthem”.  Games  of   hide  and  seek  after  lunch   or  shenanigans  in  the   playground.  Class  time  with   my  teachers  and  subjects   that  slowly  move  off  topic. All  these  times  I  will  always   remember." -­‐Dean  Alfonso,  2010~2012

"The  best  year  for  me  was   last  year  when  we  had   different  types  of  students   in  our  class.  At  'irst  we   were  very  awkward.  But  as   time  went  on,  we  became   very  close  and  we  hung  out   almost  every  day.  We  also   had  a  lock  in  and  it  was   very  fun  because  at   midnight  we  went  out  to   the  soccer  'ield  and  played   capture  the  'lag  in  the  dark.   Some  kids  had  scratches   and  wounds  after,  but  it   was  a  good  experience.  We   played  games  inside  until  4   a.m.  and  then  slept.  The  6th   and  7th  grade  boys  played   computer  games  all  day   and  the  rest  of  us  played   video  games  or  board   games.  It  was  a  fun   experience.  I  will  miss  IIS   and  I  will  never  forget  the   memories  that  I  had  while  I   was  attending  IIS.  Goodbye.   I  wish  we  could  stay   longer." -­‐Matthew  Jang,  2003~2012

“And  the  parade  says  as   they  are  looking  in  the   fridge:  “Who  ate  the   pumpkin  pie?!”  Thank  you   for  a  great  year,  IIS!” -­‐Ms.  Tulei,  2011~2012
