Personal Project (for MYP Sophomores only):
Students should be well on their way to completing their MYP Personal Project.  All sophomores should be checking the MYP Personal Project COLE site weekly to make sure they are completing all the required elements. “To-do” lists are listed for each month so that students have a pacing guide for this 6-month project.
 
Wednesday, November 16th--All sophomores are invited to a brief meeting/workshop at 2:45-3:15 p.m. in the Library. If you have having challenges finding a mentor, creating a timeline, etc, come and get caught up!
 
Many students are still looking for community mentors.  The community mentor is someone with expertise in the area of study that the student has chosen.  If you are interested in mentoring a student, please CLICK THIS LINK to send us your information. The time commitment is minimal, and the rewards are great!
 
Super Saturday:
Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 14, 2012.  MYP students will be presenting their projects at Smoky Hill High School.  Come and learn something new as MYP sophomores present their projects to the community!  This day promises to be an exciting day of learning!
