We celebrated 1/2 of the summer birthdays at our first school wide Monday morning meeting. During our meeting, the official IB flag was displayed. It was such an emotional time for all of the staff who have worked for four years to get to this moment. We also had our first Mandarin classes of the year. Sadly, two of our Mandarin teachers returned to China over the summer. Until more Mandarin teachers join us, we will have Mandarin twice a week. On Friday, we celebrated the return of Jim "Basketball" Jones. He always provides us with such a positive message. He inspires us to work with a good attitude.
