IB Parent Make up Meetings
If you missed the IB Parent meeting in September, you missed the opportunity to learn how to maximize your student’s college prep experience. Make-up meetings will be held immediately following the IB Exam Registration meetings on Oct 4th, 5th, and 6th in the Lecture Center. IB Diploma Coordinator, Patricia Wetmore, MYP Coordinator, Alisa Wills-Keely, and Counseling Coordinator, Michelle Kleve, will be presenting.
Junior Induction Ceremony
On Friday, November 4th, the Smoky Hill IB World School will officially welcome into the IB Diploma program, 112 juniors of the Class of 2013! The ceremony will take place in the auditorium at 8:30 a.m. All MYP and Diploma level students are required to attend. The juniors will be awarded their IB pins and all four classes will have their class photos taken by our official photographer, Jack Eberhard. Parents of juniors are welcomed to attend.
MYP Personal Projects
This year will be the first time that Smoky Hill High School sophomores will complete the MYP Personal Project. This year’s sophomore class is the first class to have completed the entire MYP programme—beginning in 6th grade at Laredo Middle School.
The MYP Personal Project allows students to design an area of study and complete a project modeled within the framework of MYP pedagogy. Students first identify an area of interest and craft a research question within it. They then design a project that will help them to answer their research question. Throughout the process, students are guided by a teacher supervisor and a community mentor. The community mentor is someone with expertise in the area of study that the student has chosen. If you are interested in mentoring a young person, please CLICK THIS LINK to send us your information. The time commitment is minimal, and the rewards are great!
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!
