The STEM Trailer was amazing! Kudos to Wendy Tucker for bringing this awesome interdisciplinary experience for our students! What would do without her?

I want to thank everyone who brought students down to watch the IB Community Project Presentations! I know the kids really appreciated having an audience to spread their message to! Special thanks to Sarah Martinez and Ryan Smosna for setting up the equipment to make the event a success. I would also like to thank all coaches for their flexibility in the use of the gym for IB DAYS!!! Last IB Day will be the May 4th Culture Day!
