IB: PYP June Update HMES

It is hard to believe this school year is coming to an end!  During the last week in May, we had our verification visit from the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Program (PYP), and are moving forward in our quest to become fully authorized.  Thank you to the parents who joined Dr. Healer as we discussed IB and  shared our PYP journey.


This month, our scholars are finishing up their final IB units in each grade level. Kindergartners are exploring the interdisciplinary theme of How We Express Ourselves by examining the consequences of their actions.    First Graders are learning how to Share the Planet by monitoring their impact on the environment.  Second grade scholars are probing the idea of  Sharing the Planet by delving into how organisms are interconnected. Please take this opportunity to ask your students about their learning.


With summer quickly approaching, we hope you enjoy this time, and encourage your scholars to question, explore, and appreciate the world around them!
