9th grade pre-IB seminar
With my apologies, I am canceling the pre-IB student seminar that was scheduled for 26 February and will be rescheduling it to a date later in the year (TBD). With so many snow days and shortened days due to weather, the students need to be in their classes as much as possible right now and it would not be to their benefit to pull them out of class for a seminar at this time.
I will keep you updated on the seminar date reschedule. Let's hope spring gets here soooooon.
Adham H, Katie F, Catherine S, and Jabob F are running a sock drive throughout February. Bring in new or like-new socks to donate to an area homeless shelter. There is a box in the IB room to collect your sock donations!
Social Media Updates
Students and Parents...Do you regularly use Facebook and/or Twitter? PLEASE like/follow "IBatMV." You'll get news and announcements right in your feed.
Right now, only about 70 people follow IBatMV on Twitter and only 181 folks have "liked" IBatMV on Facebook...including alumni and teachers. :(
With about 200 students currently in the pre-IB and IB Diploma programs...there's got to be more folks who would like to follow along and get updates in their newsfeeds. Have YOU "liked" us or followed us yet?
There are two wonderful opportunities coming up for college-bound sophomores and juniors:
UMW and CGS are hosting a College Admissions Forum
Though this is co-hosted by CGS, this event is not limited to CGS students. It's a great opportunity to learn about the college admissions process. Representatives will be there from UMW, W&M, UVA, and Univ. of Richmond.
This is a very special event hosted by the IB Mid Atlantic regional association hosted at Gar-Field High School in Woodbridge. It's a college fair specifically for IB students...and it's FREE! In the past two years, this event has attracted representatives from about 150 colleges and universities. I highly recommend that all IB Diploma Program Juniors (if you didn't last year as a sophomore) and pre-IB sophomores attend this event.
