MYP Parent Meeting
Dear Parents of MYP Students,
I hope everyone had a relaxing and enjoyable summer break. The 2017-18 school year is off to a positive start!
A major undertaking this year is the accreditation self study, which requires full community involvement. A brief presentation on the purpose of accreditation and your role will occur at the PTO meeting on Tuesday, September 5, 9:00, in the ISL Media Center. We hope to see you there.
As discussed last year, we will hold regular parent education sessions and workshops to better inform your understanding of the IB Programs as well as help in supporting your child’s learning and development. A list of session dates and topics will be published in the next few weeks.
The first parent session, “MYP and Your Child”, is Friday, September 8, 8:45-10:00, in the ISL Media Center. Our focus is the philosophy of the International Baccalaureate (IB), the central tenants of the Middle Years Programme (MYP), and its benefits for students in their learning and development.
Another tool for keeping you fully informed and one we are very excited to bring to your attention is the coming ISL MYP website. I will provide more details regarding this development as soon as they are available.
