We have taken one more step forward on the journey toward International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Programme (MYP) authorization:
After several years as a candidate school, our application for IB World School authorization was sent in on October 1st, and we were notified on November 4th that we passed with flying colors! A site visit will be scheduled in the spring.
KUDOS, Sanford staff! We're on our way!
Great note to our Family Liaison from a new 6th grade parent! Thank you to all our new parents for your faith in us at Sanford!
Sanford has a well-deserved good reputation with parents at [my daughter's elementary school] and I see why. My daughter is a sixth grader. I was very anxious for her to attend Middle School. Sanford has eased my nerves.
The communication from the school to the parents has been excellent. I have found the teachers to be accessible and attentive.
Just wanted to give a shout out. You guys are doing a great job. I am So happy we chose Sanford.
Kudos, Sanford teachers! We received a wonderful note from a parent of a 9th grader, sent to her son's former team teachers in September:
[He] recently turned in a rough draft of a paper that impressed his geography teacher, and the teacher said "Let me guess, you went to Sanford?" He proudly responded yes.
Sanford sets the bar high...hoping Roosevelt is doing the same!
We are excited about the changes our new 7-period day schedule allows:
* All students get classes in all 8 MYP-required subject areas every year: Language & Literature, Language Acquisition, Mathematics, Sciences, Design, Arts, Individuals & Societies, and Physical & Health Education
* English, Math, Social Studies & Science are still team-based, so the teachers all share the same students and students stay together for 3 years
* We've increased offerings in Arts, Design, PE & World Languages, including the additions of Choir & Spanish
* Advanced Reading, AVID, Readers' Workshop & Focus Math are still options for students who want or need them
Dr. Palmer spent an hour with each team reviewing the MYP program & how it impacts the new schedule. If you or your student have questions, please give us a call! Dr. Emily Palmer, Principal: 612-668-4901; Tracy Walberg, Counselor, 612-668-4905; Vicki Jones, Parent Liaison, 612-668-4914
