Extended Essay Night
(Seniors and Juniors)
Seniors are officially
submitting their Extended Essays to our IB learning community on Thursday
evening, March 13, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. in the Smoky Hill auditorium. All
seniors will read their titles and officially present their essays to our
library staff. Selected seniors will present a short synopsis of their
essay and a reflection of their process. Junior IB students are
required to attend. Freshman and sophomore MYP students are
encouraged to attend.
This annual event kicks
off our season of celebrations at Smoky Hill. The one-hour ceremony will
conclude with dessert provided by our IB parent association, SHIBPA.
All MYP freshmen and sophomores must complete 10 hours of community and service hours by March 3, 2014. Students will log into COLE 3.0 and access the course titled, “SHH MYP Program Students,” to complete the process. Community and service are meant to broaden students’ perspectives as they experience what it means to help those in need.
If students have questions about the CAS process, they can stop by the IB office.
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.
Super Saturday - March 22, 2014 (8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.):
Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 22, 2014. MYP students will be presenting their projects at Smoky Hill High School. Students will be assigned a time slot in March. They should arrive 15-20 minutes before their assigned presentation time. Their total time at school should not be more than one hour. If there are conflicts with the student’s schedule, the student will present his project in an after-school time slot on either Wednesday or Thursday, March 26th-27th. This day promises to be an exciting day of learning!
