PTA Meeting Guest Speaker: Peter Wilson and CAS Night

We are looking forward to seeing everyone at tonight’s CAS night! Peter Wilson will give a brief overview of the Creativity, Activity, and Service (CAS) program, a requirement of all IB diploma candidates. But more importantly, tonight affords a wonderful opportunity to see the actual projects completed by our seniors and discuss their individual CAS experiences. 10th and 11th grade students and their families are required to attend. We think this is a great program for all our parents.

(We will also be forming our Nominating Committee for our June 6th PTA/SLT election.)

See everyone tonight at 6:30!

Best,
Nancy and Cecilia
