IB Learner Profile of the Month
The Learner Profile for the month of May is “Reflective”. Students who are reflective give thoughtful consideration to their learning and experience.  They are able to assess and understand their strengths and limitations in order to support their learning and personal development.

Activities for Parents:

  • Spend some time reviewing your child’s report card with them.  They should have the opportunity to look at this document and consider it well. Discuss it with them and truly consider their thoughts and their strengths and areas for improvement. 
  • As we begin to wrap up this school year, have your child take some time to think about what they have learned this year-both socially and academically.  Have them create goals for themselves to continue the growth and reflection process. 
  • Attend IB Student Led Conferences on May 3rd, so that your child can reflect on the different learning experiences they have had the opportunity to engage with!
  • May IB Attitude
