Good morning International Baccalaureate Gold Ribbon Jaguars – Attention young scholars, faculty, staff, parents and parent volunteers – this is Mr. Freeman and a very special guest Communicator with your morning announcements:
At the heart of the International Baccalaureate Program are the IB Learner Profile Attributes: The IB learner profile attributes unite us all with a common focus on the whole person, as a life-long learner. It applies to us all, for we are all continually learning. Each month this year we have focused on a different IB learner profile attributes. For the months of February and March we focused on being Balanced and being Communicators. Balanced students understand the importance of intellectual, physical, and emotional balance to achieve personal well-being for themselves and others. Communicators understand and express ideas and information confidently and creatively in more than one language and use a variety of modes of communication. Even though this is the last week of school, think about how you can continue to grow as an IB Learner throughout the summer. Be an IB learner today and every day, and you, your class, your, school, your family, your friends, your community, your nation and your world will be better off and more peaceful because of it.
