This year IB students completed nearly 7,000 hours of service to our greater community! Our students make a difference an hour at a time. If you still have hours to turn in, please send documentation to Mrs. Cady as soon as possible.
New log sheets for the upcoming school year are available on our website. Students can certainly use the slower pace of summer to get started on next year's hours.
Students document their hours with a written reflection. Here, in their own words with a minimal amount of editing, are some of the lessons that MYP students have learned this year through their community and service efforts:
"I.B. is more than just a good program for students to get prepared for high school. IB is an international program that is built to make your kids into better citizens. This is why we have community and service hours requirements. For my first community and
service project, I helped my boy scout troop with an overnight camp as a staff member. Through this experience I have gained much self confidence and character." -- Noah Birkeland, year 1
"The Holton Garden (The "Dandelion") was planned step by step. It opened at the very end of my fifth grade year. It is used as an outdoor classroom. I enjoyed the part the fifth graders took in planning and making the garden. I was sad to leave it behind and came back so I wouldn't have to. I watered and weeded everyday for a week. I would spend at least an hour everyday. Now, as the garden is thriving, I am enjoying watching others enjoy it and will occasionally make a visit. It was hard work but fun and most definitely worth it." -- Julia Conte, year 1
"One of the most rewarding activities I did was at my old elementary school, J.B. Fisher. There, two other scouts and I painted the exercise equipment that
surrounds the quarter-mile track. I learned how to prepare and paint the metal poles and that if jobs are given to everyone, things go quicker and smoother. I also learned that working with friends makes work easier and more fun. " -- Joshua Hemenway, year 2

Inside this issue:
"I've been focusing on a certain area to help. My neighborhood. While it is crucial to help out on an international level, helping out locally within your neighborhood is a vital place to start. I did not start out intending for most of my hours to be within my neighborhood, but I found that I enjoy working with my friends and neighbors!" -- Ian Mills, year 3

"Community Service this year and last summer has improved my speaking skills, teaching skills, and athletic skills. Through working with 3D Baseball, I learned to speak loudly and confidently to gather their attention and to lead by example." -- Miles Braxton, year 4
Congratulations to Ian Fraser for representing us so well at the Scripps National Spelling Bee in June! You did an am-a-z-i-n-g job!

Before she was a Gates Millennium Scholar, Kristen Sims started with the IB programme when she was a sixth grader at Lucille M. Brown Middle School. During her secondary education, she has worked hard and met many challenges with grace. We are delighted that she is the valedictorian for Thomas Jefferson High School and also has the highest grade point average in the city.
Kristen was recently selected as a Gates Millennium Scholar, along with eight other Virginia students. She may use this scholarship at her choice of colleges and universities. Kristen will attend Virginia Tech, where she will major in business management.
The salutatorian for Thomas Jefferson is Melody Jacobs. Melody will attend the University of Virginia on full scholarship through a University Achievement Award.
Also attending their colleges
and universities on full tuition scholarships are Suliaman Kenyatta and Rasheka Robinson. All four of these scholars completed seven years of IB learning.
We are so proud of our entire 2011 Class. We wish them well next year!

Stock Market Game and Model UN
by Ed Craig
Our Stock Market Game kids had the third-place middle school team this spring. Please congratulate DeAndre Washington, Khalil Powell, and Joshua Hemenway. Also, we will have two teams in the fall and spring next year.
Next year I will also sponsor the Model UN team and am planning on a fall conference, a winter conference at fellow IB world school, Garfield High School, and then a conference in March or April at Maggie Walker. Ms. Diane Grinnell will sponsor the Model UN team at Thomas Jefferson High School.
It's all about Community and Service
