Five Year Review - action requested
This is the our "5 Year Review" year at the IB World School, and it's a time during which we reflect on our strengths and growth areas as they relate to the IB's international programme standards and practices. We met with faculty representatives and asked staff to complete a survey, and we would love to hear from you as well! Please complete this survey on or before January 8, 2024: https://forms.gle/38n8aRt7yi2XmZ4B6 If you would like to serve on a committee to follow up on this survey, please email Ms. Stanton at firstname.lastname@example.org. We anticipate a visit from the IB at the end of the school year, and they will want to chat with stakeholders.
Parent/Guardian/Sibling Career and Expertise database - action requested
We would love to create a database of community expertise for future IB class speakers or so that IH/IB students with an interest in your field can reach out and ask questions. Please complete this form if you'd like to help: https://forms.gle/tG6jfdoAgpz34Uu76
We are pleased to announce that we were able to match all interested mentees with mentors, and we hope those matches are successful for both partners. Mentors are provided at student request and allow students an opportunity to become friends with an older student familiar with our IB community -- both academically and socially.
Learner Profile Trait of the Month
The thinking trait is defined by the IB in this way: " We use critical and creative thinking skills to analyze and take responsible action on complex problems. We exercise initiative in making reasoned, ethical decisions."
