Welcome To Raney IBMYP
2022-2023 School Year
Welcome to Raney IBMYP!
We are excited to welcome you (and welcome back returning students) to our International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme and can't wait for you to be a part of all the great things we have planned for this year! Raney IBMYP is a heavily digital program. Important news is distributed through digital newsletters like this one, and nearly all of our program-related materials and documents can be found on our webpage here: http://bit.ly/RaneyIBMYP
In this Welcome Edition newsletter, you will find some important information that you will need in the weeks leading up to your student's start of our program. If you find that you have additional questions, please feel free to ask: Bronya.Martinez@cnusd.k12.ca.us

Service As Action
- 6th Grade = 10 hours
- 7th Grade = 15 hours
- 8th Grade = 20 hours
- 9th Grade = 25 hours
- 10th Grade = 30 hours
With proper planning, students are able to complete these requirements with just a few service events. Many students choose to go beyond and end up serving 3 or 4 times their minimum requirements.
Our Service As Action model has changed from the previous Community Service we had in years past. We ask that ALL new students wait until the school year begins before completing service events. This gives the Coordinator the opportunity to meet with them and show them how to correctly document the service hours and how to submit their hours for credit.
Please read our Service As Action Newsletter for more details.

Meet Mrs. Martinez (Program Coordinator)
I have been teaching IB students at Raney since 2004 and the IB Coordinator since July 2017. I grew up in the small town of Old Town, Maine (home of the Old Town Canoe Co.) with my parents and younger brother. After graduating from the University of Maine with a Music Education degree, I moved to California and was hired at Raney as the band director. I received a Masters in Education from Point Loma and a Masters in Music from CBU.
In my free time, I enjoy scuba diving and underwater photography with my husband. We frequent many popular dive sites in Southern California and sometimes the Caribbean. We also race dragon boats with a competitive team all over California and some neighboring states. My husband and I enjoy hiking and camping as well. We have three beautiful cats named Clara, Stella & Luna.
My other favorite thing is reading! I usually have at least three books going on at one time - a physical book, a digital book on my Kindle, and since I commute from Lakewood every day, an audiobook that I listen to while driving. My favorite genres are fantasy and historical fiction, but I will read any book that comes with a good recommendation!
