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.

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.
Happy May! With the end of the school year fast approaching, this month we are diving into the Learner Profile Trait: Reflective. Being a reflective learner can be challenging and is many times the most difficult profile trait for students to master because it requires them to look inward with an honest lense.
It is hard to believe we are already welcoming spring and saying hello to April. The learner profile of the month is Knowledgeable. Here are some helpful resources to help your child develop this trait at home.
Students who are knowledgeable have explored relevant and significant concepts and can remember what they have learned. They can draw on this knowledge and apply it in new situations.
Beginning January of this year, 8th-grade students in Individuals & Societies, and Language & Literature have been exploring multiple countries' identities through interdisciplinary Model United Nations (Model UN) unit. Model UN works to encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners.
