School News & Announcements

Dear Sabin Community Members,
 
As you may know, a local radio show this week discussed our middle school student project regarding the Life of Muhammad. The discussion singled out that project and did not give an overview of all the great work our students are doing in  6th grade Social Studies.
 
The lesson about Islam was part of a series of history lessons that also included Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism, and Buddhism.  The focus of the lessons are of a historical perspective and not a religious one. All of the lessons are part of the PPS curriculum for 6th grade Social Studies that help teach our students about world history and cultural awareness.
 
Thank you so much for your continued support of student success at Sabin
 
 
Karl Logan, Grant Cluster Regional Administrator
Andrew Dauch, Sabin Principal



Preparing for Common Core State Standards

Sabin is in the early stages of implementing the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).  How can you support this shift to more rigorous and focused instruction?  Visit The National PTA website and read the PTA’s Parents’ Guide to Student Success (in English and Spanish).  

http://pta.org/parents/content.cfm?ItemNumber=2583&RDtoken=51120&userID

This guide was developed in response to the Common Core State Standards  The Guide includes key items that children should be learning and activities that parents can do at home to support their child's learning.



SABIN SCHOOL:  IB World School - Primary and Middle Years Programmes

Sabin School received word in August that it was authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (MYP). All grades levels are now designated as being part of the IB World School* community!

*Only schools authorized by the IB organization can offer any of its three academic programs: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme. Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.

 

The Primary Years Programme (PYP) for pupils aged 3 to 12 focuses on the development of the whole child in the classroom and in the world outside.

The Middle Years Programme (MYP) for students aged 11 to 16 provides a framework of academic challenge and life skills through embracing and transcending traditional school subjects.

International Baccalaureate Mission Statement:

The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programs of international education and rigorous assessment.

These programs encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.

International Baccalaureate Learner Profiles:

The aim of all IB Programmes is to develop internationally minded people who, recognizing their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, help create a better and more peaceful world. IB learners strive to be:

  • INQUIRERS - Develop natural curiosity.
  • KNOWLEDGEABLE - Explore concepts, ideas and issues that have local and global significance.
  • THINKERS - Exercise initiative in applying thinking skills critically and creatively.
  • COMMUNICATORS - Understand and express ideas and information confidently.
  • PRINCIPLED - Act with integrity and honesty.
  • OPEN-MINDED - Understand and appreciate their own cultures and personal histories.
  • CARING - Show empathy, compassion and respect.
  • RISK-TAKERS - Approach unfamiliar situations with courage and thoughtfulness.
  • BALANCED - Understand the importance of intellectual, physical and emotional balance.
  • REFLECTIVE - Give thoughtful consideration to their own learning and experience.
