"What Will IB? Day?" Field Trip - Tuesday, February 12, 2019
Middle school should be a time of exploring and dreaming about the future. Young people can’t become what they can’t see. The more students - especially those from underserved communities - are exposed to various career options in a real-world setting, they are on a path that has the power to change lives.Hernandez Middle School and United Way of Williamson County want to change the odds so that all young people have choices and are successful. Together, we are working to provide a wide range of experiences that allow students to imagine themselves working for a tech company or a research lab or owning a successful house cleaning business. Over twenty local businesses will be hosting our students next week. For those remaining on campus, we also have several companies coming to HEMS. It should be very informational for our students.
8th Grade IB Community Project UPDATE:
Students are applying the skills and knowledge they have acquired throughout their years at Hernandez Middle School and are completing independent community service projects. IB strives to help all students develop deeper understandings of the world in which they live through helping in their local communities. The students should have finished phase one of the project and are ready to check in with their project supervisors for phase 2. Keep up the great work 8th graders!
