A Tale of Two Cruise Ships: AP English Students Interview Passengers

by Ms. Frances Butler - Sunday, September 24, 2017

Wednesday, September 13th was a banner day for cruise ship passengers and Ms. Butler's AP121 English students took full advantage of the last twenty minutes of class to discover what our visitors know about literature. Their task was to ask visitors about their favorite books, and needless to say, the answers varied as much as the countries from which they originated!

Sammey, Emma, and Allie interviewed three visitors who enjoyed Now You See Her, Harry Potter, and Last Lecture. The reasons were: "I like mysteries", "I don't know", and "it has a good storyline".

Mark, Luhumba, and Jesse spoke to a woman from Germany who loved Nicholas Sparks' Two by Two for its romance, and Gavin and Jolin spoke with a man who enjoys non-fiction, so his choice was Chemical Pathway. Another German visitor enjoyed In Times of Fading Light (translated from German), which was made into a movie. Other novels included Game of Thrones: A Dance with the Dragons, Huckleberry Finn, and Dracula, to name a few.

The students found the exercise made them step outside their comfort zone, and they were surprised by some of the 'quotable quotes' they received, such as: "I haven't read a book in twelve years", "No, no, too much feeling! I have to find my wife!", "Do you speak German?", "No books! No books!", and "No, no, we don't talk to girls like you"!!

As Nick and Owen pointed out, "Not everyone reads books like we do in High School". J

2017 IB Diplomas and Certificates Are Now Available

by Ms. Lutz - Monday, August 28, 2017

Results for the 2017 IB exams became available online in early July. During the May IB exams students were given personal codes and PIN numbers to use to access their results. Anyone who has misplaced those codes can contact Ms. Lutz.

Now that the results have been finalized, the actual Diplomas and Certificates have been sent to the school. They are available from Ms. Lutz's mailbox in the main office. Many graduates have already moved on to their post-secondary plans, so parents or siblings are welcome to drop by the school to collect the documents on the IB students' behalf.

Please note that some IB French and IB Physics Certificates from 2016 were also just made available. If a student was registered as a Diploma candidate in his grade 11 year, those Certificates would have been held over until the end of the 2017 school year.
