Happy Holidays

Christmas Candles

On behalf of IES Umeå, Happy Holidays to everyone!

There were many photos taken during the Julavslutning. Sorry they cannot be posted on our website at this time for we need to be sure all permissons are in order! The ceremony was a wonderful way to close our first semester of school for this year.  Thank you one and all for helping the students of IES Umeå continue to be simply "AWESOME!"

Santa Lucia

Lucia Train 2017

Students and staff of IES Umeå enjoyed an amazing performance the morning of December 13th from classmates of IES Umeå. A wonderful Lucia Train started the assembly with students all dressed for the ocassion carrying lit candles singing the famous Santa Lucia song as they entered the gym. Many traditional songs followed, some in harmony, some with solos, and some with crowd participation. Our very own students were the musicians accompaning the singers as they performed. Some of our students in the spot light are: Elias Xie on piano, Valentine Önander on guitar, Patric Önander on percussion, Tilde Emilsson on flute, and Johanna Birgersdotter as Santa Lucia. A big thank you to Ewelina Lundholm and Chelsea Parsons for making this happen!

Wintertime at IES Umeå


Students go outside for recess everyday regardless of the weather. There is a saying they have here in Sweden, "There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing!" Here at IES Umeå, sometimes the bad weather brings lots of great fun at recess time!
