Group 4 Project-A community event!
On Thursday, February 7th, IB students, parents, faculty, and many Smoky Hill community members gathered in the Lecture Center to kick off this year’s Group 4 project presentations. This annual event is the culmination of several weeks of interdisciplinary work between students in the IB Biology, Physics and Chemistry classes. Students produced video trailers of the projects as a teaser to their poster presentations that followed outside the Lecture Center hall. Some videos will be shown on the TV monitors during school hours. Congratulations to our IB Science students!
Internal Assessment Information
During TCAPs, our IB juniors and seniors will be hard at work completing their Internal Assessments (IAs) several subjects. In English and World Language, students will be participating in oral examinations. Our IB Visual Arts students will be recording their oral presentations for their portfolios. IB Business, Psychology and History will be completing their case studies, experiments and historical investigations. If you have questions regarding your son/daughter’s IA, please contact his/her teacher.
Extended Essay Night
The Extended Essay is one of the culminating experiences in IB. The journey begins in the spring of the junior year and ends the fall of the senior year after over 40 hours of work. The finished project that emerges is called The Extended Essay.
On March 14th, our IB seniors will officially submit their essays to the Smoky Hill High School library for future generations. The evening will begin at 7:00 p.m. with a short presentation from five to six seniors chosen for their exemplar essays followed by the formal submission of each diploma candidate’s essay to the library. A few fun surprises will conclude the evening’s events. All members of the Smoky Hill community are encouraged to attend and celebrate what these scholars have accomplished!
Reminder: All IB juniors are required to attend the ceremony. Absences must be pre-approved by Mrs. Wetmore or Mrs. Kleve.
