It is hard to believe June is here and summer break is just around the corner. Our last learner profile of the year is Balanced. I like to end the year with this one so that as we transition from our academic year to summer we can acknowledge the value of balance in our lives.

In 4th grade we are currently focusing on the IB Transdisciplinary Theme of: How We Express Ourselves. During this unit, the 4th grade class wrote a persuasive biography about one of the most important people in their lives: their MOMS.
It is our pleasure to announce to our community that our primary school is a fully authorized IB program. After the visit from IB at the beginning of April, it took less than a month for them to get back to us with the decision to recognize our primary school as an IB PYP programme, and to let us know that we passed with flying colors! This is a process we began during my first year at SPS (2018-19) and to see it now come to fruition is tremendously rewarding and a testament to the hard work of many people over the years.
In April this year, all 8th-grade students participated in the three-day Virtual Oregon Model UN Conference. This conference was the culmination of months of work SPS student delegates put in during L&L and I&S to accurately represent their country (Argentina, Singapore, The Netherlands, or the United Arab Emirates) in committees. Students explored their country’s identities while navigating how these identities shape beliefs, systems of governance, and relationships in the world.
At Seven Peaks, as in all independent schools, we rely on both tuition and fundraising to provide our students with the very best school experience we can. And we have such a generous community!
COI is a long standing tradition at Seven Peaks School. During this unit, students go through the whole design thinking process from researching specific needs and problems to brainstorming and creating solutions.
