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.
