Attention 5th Grade Families!

I know we just started the 5th grade year, but it is already time to begin thinking about middle school! Your child has an opportunity to apply to attend the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program at Moody Middle School.  According to the program’s website, the IB Program, “includes a comprehensive curriculum for students who are highly motivated and who have demonstrated the ability to achieve academically. In addition to a well-rounded selection of courses, students focus on developing a wide variety of skills to help them think critically, organize carefully, communicate appropriately and reflect purposefully.” All of our 5th grade students are welcome to apply to this specialty program for advanced learners.

The Open House for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years Program is at Moody Middle School on October 17, 2019.  Here is a flyer: 2019 Moody Open House Flyer.

If your zone middle school is Wilder, you should attend an Open House for the IB Program at Fairfield Middle School on October 3, 2019. Here is the flyer:  Fairfield Open House. The majority of our students would attend IB at Moody.

I encourage all parents and students who are interested in this program to attend the Open House with their child.

Applications will be available beginning September 18 and are due to me by November 15, 2019. If your child would like to apply for this program, please let me know.

For more information, check out an informational video: IB Progam at Moody Video or IB Program at Fairfield Video

If you have any questions, please feel free to call me here at school at 261-5060 or Debbie Cain, the IB Program Assistant, at 261-6440. You can also email me at blbushey@henrico.k12.va.us.
