Good morning International Baccalaureate Gold Ribbon Jaguars – Attention young scholars, faculty, staff, parents and parent volunteers – this is Estrella Salazar your 7th Grade Class Vice-President and special guest Communicators with your morning announcements, but first we’d like to ask for a moment of silence to honor the victims of the Volcanic eruption in Guatemala. (Pause) Thank you:
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. 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.
Important Announcements from Principal Dara: We are on a minimum day for today and tomorrow. This morning we will be having a culmination rehearsal during periods 2 through 5, and this evening at 6:00 PM is our 8th Grade Culmination Ceremony. All culminating students are asked to arrive at Wilson High School’s MPR area at 5:00 PM today. Tomorrow, which is our last day of school, we will have our annual 8th Grade Picnic for all 8th graders who are eligible for culmination. And, last but certainly not least, teachers, please remember to submit attendance during the first 15 minutes of every period. Thank you and have a great day everyone! Be on the TEAM, because Together, El Sereno Achieves More.
