Dear IB Families,
The start to the second semester has been fast and furious. January found our juniors at SMU and the Dallas Public Library for their Extended Essay Writing Workshop. We love getting to take our students out into the community for these learning experiences. The kids are always so thoughtful, engaging, and funny. It's great to watch their personalities open up as they learn just how much we are invested in their success. What a gift these amazing kids are!
In addition to conducting the Writing Workshop, we have been getting our seniors ready to complete their IAs, finishing the admissions process for the incoming group of 9th graders, and preparing for course selections with our current 9th, 10th, and 11th graders. On Thursday, we will be meeting with all of our current 10th graders in the library at 10:30 to discuss the DP program and to complete IB course selections for next year. Parents are always welcome to attend this meeting. At the conclusion of the event, the IBPO will be providing a pizza lunch for all of the students. If you haven't yet joined the IBPO and would like to help with these special events, please visit their website. Joining is easy and it's so rewarding to be part of such an efficient, positive group that is focused on the success of our students and program.
Please make plans to join us for the spring IBPO general meeting and speaker series. We are excited to offer this opportunity and we look forward to this time together.
I hope you have a wonderful week. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to let me know.
