Grove Park Elementary School capped up the end of the year and their first year as an International Baccalaureate School by sending the entire school to Zoo Miami for a field trip to wrap up the students’ Sharing the Planet unit that included the students researching and studying various animals, creating Paper Slide videos and presentations on the iPads – that the students received as part of the MSAP grant. The zoo trip was a first for many of the children.
“Being an I.B. PYP (Primary Years Programme) school truly ‘prepares students for the intellectual challenges of further education and their future careers, focusing on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside’,” said Nicole Black, the Single School Culture Coordinator for the school.
Grove Park Elementary School is one of five District schools that are still accepting applications for enrollment into their MSAP grant-funded programs, including two I.B. elementary schools, an I.B. middle school and one I.B. middle school adding STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) while another is adding STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) curriculum.
