On Tuesday, Dec. 12, the IB United parent support organization is hosting a fundraiser at Pancho Villa (the one on Rte. 610 next to Chick-fil-A). Take your family for a terrific lunch or dinner and mention the IB United fundraiser. 15% of your purchase will be donated by Pancho Villa to support the IB program at MVHS.

Donations Needed for Christmas
Diploma students Nico S and Matt P are organizing an Adopt-a-Family drive and need YOUR help. All IB and pre-IB families are asked to consider donating an item for the family we have adopted. This is a Stafford County family in need with 4 children. The presents supplied by this drive are likely to be the children's only presents for the holiday. Stop by the IB Room this week to pick out an item from the children's wish lists that you would like to donate. All donations need to be turned in by Dec. 9, please. Nico and Matt are also taking monetary donations or gift cards.
Holiday Artifacts Wanted
Hello! I am seeking winter holiday artifacts from around the world and representing different cultures for a display. Does anyone have winter holiday artifacts I could borrow for that purpose? These could be books, decorations, etc. Ideally, I'd like to see several cultures represented. They will be in a locked display case in Dec. and Jan. Please send in artifacts you are willing to share, with your name and contact information attached somehow.

New! pre-IB and IB Tutoring
On October 3, we will be starting a new peer-tutoring program for pre-IB students who would like some help from IB students who have been through the classes already. Juniors in the IB classes can also get tutoring from seniors in the IB classes.
Tutoring will take place just about every Thursday from 2:30-3:30 in the IB Room. Students do need to sign up at least a day in advance so that we can make sure there will be a tutor available.
9th and 10th grade pre-IB students are encouraged to take advantage of this new program!
Sign up for tutoring spots HERE.
