PHS IB Grocery Gift Card Program

The purpose of the IB Reloadable Gift Card Program is to allow IB families to raise money and pay for IB expenses not covered by Poudre School District. Since the IB Diploma Program is not a graduation requirement in PSD, expenses incurred as part of IB are the responsibility of the student. Such expenses include: 

  • IB summer reading books

  • Supplemental books for IB Classes (mainly English)

  • IB exam fees (junior and senior years)

  • IB related field trips and summer trips

The Poudre HS IB program, in connection with participating grocery stores, has set up a gift card program to provide 5% of each gift card sale back to the program and individual student accounts. Your student is credited with 4.5% and 0.5% will go into a general IB student activities fund for various IB expenses, including IB student scholarships.

10th grade Personal Project Meeting Information

A meeting for parents of 10th graders taking part in the MYP Personal Project took place on Wednesday, Sept. 6th.  We went over the basic structure and timeline of the project as well as some of the common struggles that come up (let them struggle, please!).  If interested, follow the links to the right for the meeting PowerPoint, the project calendar/timeline and a general document giving a general overview of the project framework and assessment criteria.  If you have any questions, please ask your student to explain it first (it's good for them) and always feel free to e-mail me if you still have questions or concerns.
