Transportation Change

Students who move out of the IB attendance zone for the school to which they were accepted will choose between two options in order to remain in the HCPS IB program.

  1. They can continue to attend their original IB World School if parents provide transportation.  HCPS will not provide bus transportation.
  2. They can attend the IB World School zoned for their new residence.  HCPS will provide bus transportation.


Please contact the IB Programs Office with proof of contract reflecting a new address and the date of the planned move as soon as possible to ensure a smooth and timely transition.


Visit the Fellowship tab for all upcoming fellowship events and photos.  The parent comprised committees plan several events each year to bring IB students and parents together for refreshments and social time.  Emails and Sign Up Geniuses are sent periodically throughout the year in preparation for each event.  There are many ways for parents to be involved.

Service As Action (Community and Service)

Each year logs are due in October,  February  and the last turn in date  is in May.  Turn in your updated logs and reflection to your math teacher.  This year’s reflection topics can be found on  the Service As Action (Community and Service) tab on this blog.

REMEMBER ALL IB STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO EARN 20 HOURS BY MAY TO BE IN GOOD STANDING. There is no required number of hours that have to be earned at each turn in day as long as 20 hours have been completed by May.

 IMPORTANT:  If you have not completed the required hours, you may have an extension until June 1st so you can take advantage of May opportunities. Drop a note to Mrs. Wilcox in M2 or email her to let her know you will take advantage of the extension.

Rising 6th grade students may not start earning hours until the Fall after I have met with them to explain what Community and Service is and what activities will count.

Rising 7th and 8th grade students may earn as many  hours of service over the summer starting in May after the last log turn in date.  Regardless of the number of hours earned in the summer, at least 5 hours needs to be earned during the school year, between September  and May of each year .
