Long Beach Middle School
Hello 8th Grade Parents
We are very proud to be an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. As part of the requirements of the Middle Years Program (MYP), all 8th grade students are required to complete a service project in their final year of Middle School.
The community project is a wonderful opportunity for students to align their interests with a need that they observe in their world. All students will be paired with a staff advisor that they will meet with three times throughout the next few months. This advisor will help them focus their project using our Community Project handbook. The total time over the next few months for students to these projects is 15 hours. All 8th grade students received a copy of the handbook that completely outlines the project today. A digital copy can be found by clicking here.
I would like to thank Mrs. Jennifer McWilliams and Mrs. Megan Kalner for serving as our Community Project facilitators and Mrs. Lorie Beard, our MYP Coordinator. Should you have any questions you can contact them here at LBMS.
We are looking forward to this exciting initiative and know that this service opportunity will have a positive impact on our students and community!
