International Day - March 11th

International Day is one of IB students' favorite days of the year! Taking place right before Spring Break, IB students take a day off from classes and instead learn about the diverse and awesome world around them. Presenters from various countries come to Poudre and talk about the culture of their country. 

Service Opportunity: International Day is a big event needing many volunteers - as presenters, scheduling of rooms, handing out passports, and more! If interested in more details as to how you can help for the day, please contact Katie or Shane! We’d love to hear from you!!

2018-19  IB Student Leadership Ongoing Projects

Freshmen Integration into the MYP, Pre-Diploma Pathway, and the IB Program

The adjustment from middle school, especially non-IB schools to the MYP and IB Programs at Poudre is not a walk in the park. The IB Staff and IB Student Leadership work very hard to help freshmen get acclimated to PHS and the IB program, and set them up for success in the DP, AP classes or any other coursework at PHS. The main tool is the Pre-Diploma pathway Freshman Seminar classes.
