Harry Stone’s MYP 3 (IB Middle Year Program, 3rd year, or 8th grade) student community projects were highlighted in this Fall’s Texas IB Schools newsletter.
From the newsletter:
Community Project Sparks Community Action
Last year’s MYP 3 students, Makayla, Ashanti and Kenethia rebuilt Harry Stone’s butterfly garden. The year before that, Angel, Carlos and Sebastian organized a Blood Drive on campus through Carter Blood Care. This year, students are largely focusing on the less fortunate members of our local community including Dachshunds.
Stone is fortunate to have dedicated, motivated, and outstanding examples of student leaders promoting civic action. Without the IB program, we would not have this valuable learning experience for our students on a school-wide basis. And because we are a Pre K through MYP 3 campus, our students are role models for our younger students.
