It's hard to believe that the summer is over and the halls will be filled with students in less than 48 hours. We look forward to seeing everyone shortly!
This year, we have several new initiatives. As many of you have heard, all of our MYP students will be equipped with a computer for use during the day and at home. Our one-to-one initiative is designed to support student learning both at school and at a home and offers a seamless integration with our Pearson curriculum. Please note that students will be required to pay an MYP technology fee, in order to take their computer home.
In addition, this year all students will participate in an enrichment block called A.C.E. (Academic and Character Enrichment). Each day students will engage in a community gathering with their homeroom teacher, which focuses on fostering community within the classroom. After the community gathering students will work on enrichment activities in a different subject each day of the week. The program is modeled after last year's weekly advisory program and has been modified to support enrichment on a daily basis.
We will be using this blog and website to post updates and keep parents informed of the latest news in MYP. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us directly.
