Dear Johnnie Carr Middle School Students, Parents and Guardians:
We Did It!!! Congratulations to our supportive parents, gifted students, and outstanding faculty and staff for helping Johnnie Carr Middle School attain full authorization as an official International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. Carr offers the only IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) in the district and was able to pursue acceptance into this prestigious organization with the sustained support of Superintendent Allen and the Board members.
Although the journey to achieving authorization was rigorous, the work has truly just begun. As an IB school, the bar has been raised, and the expectations are even higher for all stakeholders. Our goal is to develop the “whole” child – mind, body, and soul, and we believe it is our job to equip students to compete in a global society and make a positive impact on their communities.
For further information about IB and its programmes, visit http://www.ibo.org.
Thank you again for your support and partnership in achieving this distinct honor.
John M. Johnston
This Friday, October 17 is our Positive Behavior Fall Festival. The PTSA is asking for donations of sodas, waters, and chips to offset the cost of the event. The PTSA has also set up a competition between homerooms to see who can raise the most money for our computer lab. The overall winning homeroom will receive a week of dressing down, a pizza party, and will be allow to wear their Halloween costume to school on the 31st. The other two grade level winners will also get a pizza party and be allowed to dress down on the day of the pizza party.
