This school-year, DCPS Global Education partnered with DCPS’s six International Baccalaureate (IB) World Schools to recognize students and families at the first annual IB Showcase. Eliot-Hine MS is one of two DCPS IB middle schools in the city. At this recent IB showcase, EH students and families viewed projects through a gallery walk and voted on their favorite IB work products. EH students’ projects ranged from science fair projects, community projects, art, and student writing.
In addition to supporting event set-up and clean-up, Eliot-Hine students were also present to share their Community Projects and receive recognition on stage. Each school honored students with Learner Profile awards and Outstanding IB Assignment awards. Parents and community members were also honored with an Outstanding Program Advocate Award. All in all, it was an exciting night to celebrate DCPS’s IB World Schools!
