Royal Oak High School is in project mode this March! This year's sophomores have completed their projects, written and submitted their reports, and will be sharing their products, outcomes, and hard work during the high school Open House , March 29th from 6-8p. If you are interested taking part in all the amazing work our students have done, stop by to chat with students and experience this capstone of MYP.
As we are celebrating the completion of sophomore projects, the ninth graders are gearing up to start their own. Last week during students' seminar class, freshmen met in the auditorium with Mr. McMann and Ms. Belzyt for a presentation about the Personal Project. This project allows students to demonstrate the knowledge, understanding, and skills they have developed over the course of their five years in the Middle Years Programme; students begin the project at the end of their freshman year and complete as sophomores. Over the next few weeks, before students have Enrichment Learning Time (ELT) again, they will begin brainstorming potential topics for their project. Students were enrolled in a Google Classroom and provided with an electronic workbook to help support them through the process of the project. They also signed up for Remind 101 messages and were shown how to access all the materials they will need on their Google Classroom and Projects Website. If you would like to see presentation they viewed, click here. Freshmen will be getting a preview of the current sophomores' project exhibition during 6th hour on March 29th to give them a better idea of the types of products or outcomes they might explore.
After spring break, ROHS will be hosting an informational night about the Personal Project and how families can support their students throughout it on April 19th at 7p. in the ROHS Learning Commons. Mr. McMann and Ms. Belzyt will discuss what the project is, how students will be supported in school, and what role families can take to ensure student success. We encourage families before this meeting to visit the projects website, as well as the parent resource page on the Royal Oak MYP website, and look at the projects workbook and Google Classroom with their student. If you have any questions regarding projects before the informational night, please feel free to contact Ms. Belzyt or Mr. McMann with questions.
Ms. Belzyt is the MYP Coordinator for the Royal Oak Middle and High Schools, an IB educator, and life-long learner
