MYP update of the week

My name is Elisabeth Fontana and I will be the half-time MYP coordinator for Ramsey this year. I will be in charge of supporting staff as we continue to implement the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB-MYP) schoolwide to provide all students with a holistic, inquiry-based education that helps create engaged global citizens. At the center of the IB is the Learner Profile, which are ten attributes that we would like all our learners to strive to be. The learner profiles are: inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced, and reflective.

This week, students and staff have been focused on being communicators. Teachers and staff have been communicating school and classroom expectations. Students have been communicating so that teachers can get to know their interests and learning styles and students can learn new things about their classmates.
