Grade 1A

American International School Egypt – West Campus


We are all so excited to be your pen pals this year! We loved the video slideshow that you sent us and we hope you enjoy our slideshow just as much.

Photo Caption: This is our class during our Christmas party. Ms. Heather let us wear our pajamas to school! Do you get to wear your pajamas to school?


We live in the country of Egypt. Egypt is apart of the continent of Africa.


Our school is in a city called Sheikh Zayed, but many of us live in different parts of Cairo. When there is no traffic it takes us 30 minutes to drive from school to our homes in Cairo. However, usually it takes us 1-2 hours to drive home after school because there are so many cars on the road. Cairo is where the Giza pyramids and the Spinx are located.


Egypt has 2 seasons (winter and summer).

Winter is from November to April. The temperature is around 60 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and 40 degrees Fahrenheit at night. For the first time in over 100 years, we got snow this year.

Summer is from May to October. It gets to be over 100 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer.
