On Friday, January 30, the Scandia Elementary students and staff celebrated becoming an IB World School! Mrs. Greiman and IB Coordinator Mrs. Gerry Seaburg congratulated the students and staff for their hard work over the past three years to earn this distinction. Student representatives from each class read what becoming an IB school has meant to their class. Each student did a self portraiture that will be hunt throughout the school. Students also contributed a blue and green thumbprint to our IB World School sign. At the end of the program, the students danced to their favorite pop tunes provided by DJ, Mr. Swensen, and ate fortune cookies in honor of being able to learn Chinese.
