  • 8th Grade Community Project Symposium- all are welcome!

    May 22, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
    Summit Room

    All are welcome to join us next Tuesday, May 22nd, from 8:45-10:00 am for the 8th Grade Community Project Symposium in the Summit Room. The community project focuses on community and service, encouraging students to explore their right and responsibility to implement service as action in the community. The community project gives students an opportunity to develop awareness of needs in various communities and address those needs through service learning. As a consolidation of learning, work on the community project engages students in a sustained, in-depth inquiry leading to service as action in the community. Community projects are student-centered and they enable students to engage in practical explorations through a cycle of inquiry, action and reflection. They help students to develop the attributes of the IB learner profile, provide students with an essential opportunity to demonstrate “approaches to learning” (ATL) skills developed through the IB Middle Years Program, and foster the development of independent, lifelong learners. Our students have worked on their projects since the beginning of the year, and they are eager to share their projects with the community. We hope you can come and see what they have accomplished!

Career speaker in Middle School

Chanelle Jumper - Chemist

Middle School Career Speakers

Did you know?  Each month, Middle School has hosted a career speaker where a current parent or friend of the school comes in and shares information and insights about their profession with the MS students. To date, the students have learned about graphic design, pediatric dentistry, pharmaceutical research, book publishing, finance and risk management, molecular biology, computer science, veterinary medicine and chemistry. Quite a range of professions! Each speaker talked about their journey – what led them to choose their career, their education, pros and cons of their profession, and what their daily work is like. In addition, the students had an opportunity to do an activity or experiment, and also had time to ask questions.

The final presentation of the year was hosted by Chanelle Jumper, PH.D., a chemist at Princeton University and mother of Shayla in the Primary program. Chanelle spoke about what made her decide upon a career in chemistry, and showed the students several demonstrations illustrating chemical reactions. Then, students were able to build their own molecular models. The students were curious, asked questions, and were able to make connections between what they are learning in their science curriculum and the real-world application presented by Ms. Jumper.

Next year, Middle School will once again host career speakers each month. If you are interested, keep an eye out for more information and the sign-up sheet to be shared in early September.
