4th Grade IB Scholar's Wax Museum
The 4th graders selected an individual of the past to study
and bring back to life. They were very creative in making their
costumes as well! There was Anne Frank, Babe Ruth, Rosa Park,
Henry Ford, Neil Armstrong, Maya Angelou, Amelia Earhart,
and even Dr. Seuss!
Good Job 4th Grade Scholars!
Part of the IB philosophy is student action/service. Ms. Tecza’s second grade class
from Blythe Elementary School (an IB World School) discussed ways to give back to
the community during the holidays so the focus is not on receiving, but giving to others.
They collected items for the children at Levine’s Children’s hospital, made a banner
and did crafts for those children as well. Ms. Tecza will be making a very special delivery
to Levine’s Children's Hospital!

The Holiday Store
Each year, Ms. Burton and Ms. Hankins, Blythe
make a list and check it twice. They applied the IB attribute of caring by
families that need financial assistance with shopping for the
holidays. To support
these families, they collaborated with St. Marks’ Catholic
Church. St. Marks’ collected
new toys, coats and books for parents to go shopping. The Holiday Store
was held this past Saturday, December 3, 2016. These ladies, along with Blythe and
St. Marks volunteers, are true caring IB Scholars.
There were name brand hats, gloves, and scarves
ranging from $1 to $3. The prices
rangedfrom $1 to $15 for popular books, games, and toys like Maze Runner, Harry
Potter, Legos, Barbie Dolls, Air Hogs, Simon, Bop It, and they even had Razor
Scooters as well.
The prices are made affordable so parents can shop for their own children.
