IB EXHIBITION

Each student has 1-2 key concept questions that he or she is responsible for researching. This research should have been completed last week. Please check in with your child to make sure this part has been completed. Email Mrs. Schirmer or me if your child needs help. We will do whatever we can to help your child be successful on this exhibition journey.


Last week, students began brainstorming possible actions and products for their Exhibition projects. Mrs. Schirmer and I will be checking in with students this Tuesday, and will help each group select the best actions and products for their topics.

CHOCOLATE MILK OPINION ESSAYS

Students did an AMAZING job presenting their cases in our debates on Friday. They were well-prepared with evidence to support their opinions and also provided thoughtful counterarguments. Check out some of the photos below!
