CREATIVITY IS IN FULL BLOOM!

Happy Spring, Global Glads!

This month, our 2016 MYP Year 5 Cohort have submitted their IB MYP Personal Projects! The completion of the IB Personal Project is the culminating task of the IB Middle Years Programme! These young global scholars now join the growing CCHS community of IB students who have established themselves as critical, reflective, and creative learners from 6th grade through 10th grade. CCHS Family, please join me in congratulating and celebrating these amazing young people!

How can IB...BALANCED?

This month's IB Learner Profile focus is BALANCED. Students who successfully complete an IB MYP Personal Project truly exemplify a global scholar who is BALANCED. Many of our students from the 2014, 2015, and now 2016 cohorts not only worked on their projects diligently for the past 7 months, but they also balanced 7 courses( some AP and Advanced Level courses), extracurricular activities, and their social lives. Completing a long term, independent project like a Personal Project proves to colleges, universities, work based study programs, and internships that you have excellent time management. Time management is a skill that will serve all CCHS Global Gladiators well not only in high school, but in all areas of life. How well do you balance your time?
