Churchill IB Families:
The Churchill IB PTO welcomes you and your student to the Winston Churchill Middle School International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (IBMYP)
We're confident that you'll find an academic year filled with an engaging, challenging and thought-provoking curriculum that brings students, staff and families together in this inclusive setting.
The aim of the IBMYP is to awaken the intelligence of students, and to teach them to recognize the relationship between school subjects and global issues. Along with a curriculum that follows Common Core guidelines, Churchill's IB students are involved in challenging academic courses, second-language studies, clubs, community-service engagement, and opportunities in technology and the arts.
The Winston Churchill IB PTO will soon be a combination of the IB Booster Club and the WCMS PTO. Our mission will remain the same but now encompass the school as a whole. We will direct, support and advocate for our program and school. The IB-PTO organization funds a large percentage of the teacher trainings that are required by the Global IB Organization. Each year, we send between 10-15 teachers to IB training and conferences at a cost of $1,500 per participant. We also support our teachers year-round by offering mini-grants for projects that enhance the IB experience. We work with the school on upgrading the technology available to teachers and students, providing funds for mobile computer labs, iPads, and flat-screen TVs. We ask that you support our program by donating to our Annual Giving Fund, our primary source of revenue. All donations are tax-deductible, and allow us to continue the high-level programming our students receive.
We hope you’ll contact us at any time if you have questions about our program. We invite you to join us at our monthly IB-PTO meetings, held on the first Tuesday of every month, unless otherwise noted on the school calendar.
Contribute to our Annual Giving Fund, come to our IB-PTO meetings, get involved, and make the most of your student's academic experience!
