Weekly Update

Update for the Weeks of December 2 and 9, 2019

  • Personal Project students (grade 10) can sign up daily (except Wednesdays) to work on the Personal Project during Lunch & Learns. Students may sign up via Edficiency for this dedicated work time.
  • On December 6, we will celebrate with our 25 November students of the month, who were nominated for exhibiting the IB learner profile of Open-Minded.
  • Also on December 6, we’ll be holding our annual Silver Platter Day. This is when our senior diploma candidates turn in their completed Extended Essay to their supervisor, indicating that they have completed this major step in their journey to earn the IB Diploma. This year, 12 seniors will be submitting their extended essays.
  • We are still accepting both IB and AP test registration forms. Testing fee is $90/test, but if this is a difficulty for your family, scholarship funds are available. Both HL and SL courses can help your student earn potential college credit, which saves you money down the road. Minnesota state universities, community colleges and technical schools accept both SL and HL credits, depending on the score. If your student is on the fence about whether to test, consider this: if they test and earn an acceptable score, they’ll earn enough credits to save well over $400 (per test, depending on where they enroll for post-secondary education). It's worth their time (and money) to take the tests.
  • Our annual IB Night of Service will be held at Cooper on January 23 from 5 - 7 p.m. Plan to attend with your family and participate in many activities that will make a difference in our community. We are currently seeking donations of fleece for a project we’ll be doing that evening for Secondhand Hound. Donations can be brought to the front office at Cooper.
  • We’re entering the season of college application deadlines. This week’s blog offers advice to students on how to capitalize on their IB education.  Enjoy the read!
