This week at our PTA meeting, we had a presentation by the Travel Committee, working to coordinate foreign trips for our MYP (6-8) students. We want the presentation to get out to a wider audience, and are making it available on the PTA website.

Dear Parents and Students,
The article entitled, “The Transformative Nature of an IB Education,” is the perfect answer to why Harry Stone became an IB school. Additionally, it explains the “intangible” benefits of an IB education that we often have difficulty expressing. We can talk about IB Learner Profile Traits and Approaches to Learning, but to see the students successfully instigating, implementing and engaging in action is the proof of the value of our program.
I invite everyone to the Community Project Presentations the MYP3 students will give in February. You will be inspired by what these young people have accomplished for the betterment of our human community and see the perfect expression of what an IB education is all about.

School administration has brought to our attention a gap we have in officially getting students enrolled. Dallas ISD wants students explicitly enrolled in their system. See instructions the link below for online registration. Hint: It involves Power School.
For parents attending the Montessori Parent Night tomorrow (Wednesday, 9/26), your teachers have your student codes, and there will be a number of computers available so you can take care of it there.
For parents of 6-8 graders, student codes were handed out to the students today.
