Mitchell Elementary School – Global Readers Global Leaders Grant

 Mitchell Elementary is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP).

PYP school curriculum focuses on the six transdisciplinary themes:

Who we are

Where we are in place and time

How we express ourselves

How the world works

How we organize ourselves

Sharing the planet

The Global Readers Global Leaders Grant funded the purchase of books that align with the PYP trandisciplinary themes. In an IB World School, students of every grade level will become globally minded citizens. They have access to materials that nurture the development of the whole child, and allow for intellectual challenges through inquiry. These books will become our students’ windows to the world, as they learn about the cultures, ideas, beliefs and places that lay beyond their home and neighborhood.
