Big Park's International Baccalaureate Program draw for the community

Educators gathered at the club's March 7 meeting to discuss Big Park School's move to become an International Baccalaureate school. Rotarian Jan Groves (2nd right) said while BPCS was threatened last year with closure, parents, community supporters, and fundraising has kept the doors open. The school now looks to prepare students for the 21st century. Big Park School Principal Debbie Jones (2nd left) said the school is implementing the International Baccalaureate Program this year and hopes to be fully authorized within a few years. "It's so exciting to see students learning to learn," she said. Debbie discussed curriculum components which include student-led teacher-parent conferences. Jan said the best way to invest in a community is through schools. "I see Sedona as an island of excellent schooling . . . which will attract others." Community members are invited to help support the school through an "Adopt a Teacher" program as well as an upcoming fall fundraiser and sparks parties. Club President Elect Dave Young (far left) announced the book "Sea Otter Rescue" will be donated to the Sedona Public Library on behalf of the meeting's speakers: Debbie, Jan and Don Groves (far right).
