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.

IB Globe Project

The IB Globe Project is one of the main avenues that IBSL uses to make an impact on the global community. The 2017-18 Globe Project was a Sadie Hawkins Valentine's Dance where all proceeds went towards an international organization that works to build schools. 

Service Opportunity: Volunteers will be needed to help plan, set up, and tear down the Sadie Hawkins dance. This will take place in February, so it is a little bit down the road. Check back soon for information regarding the first committee meeting.
