Students Receive Board of Education Recognition
At the June 1st Board of Education meeting 21 International Baccalaureate Diploma candidates for the class of 2016 were honored for their achievements. The IB students recently completed this very demanding 2 year program of study. A program which is internationally known for its rigor and quality. In addition to taking IB courses these students all finished a demanding 4,000 word essay on the topic of their choice and engaged in a range of extracurricular activities that encourage creativity, physical activity and community service. From knitting and donating hats to Code Blue; to collecting books and making homemade bookmarks for the Red Book Shelf program; to cleaning the cafeteria with the custodians for a week, it's amazing to see how much they have accomplished. These students will continue to be life-long learners and are prepared to effectively participate in an increasingly global society. Next year will bring a variety of different experiences for these students and whether it’s pursuing a college education, joining our military or participating in an international rotary exchange program, they will all continue to truly amaze us!
