Campus BRIGHT Summer Readers

Students who turned in their reading logs received a Reading Bash.

International Dot Day

We joined the global celebration of International Dot Day on Sept.15,2015. Students read the book "The Dot" by Peter H. Reynolds and created artwork. As students embraced the book's message: "Make your mark and see where it takes you!", they painted their own designs on a shirt. By doing this activity, students were able to gain knowledge on mixing colors, design, creativity and most of all showed their International Baccalaureate learner profile of being Risk Takers.
