Fairfax announces IB event
Fairfax Elementary School is on a path to become an International Baccalaureate (IB) school. Parents, students, and community members are invited to the school on Thursday, April 19, to learn about, and celebrate, what it means to be an IB school. Fairfax Elementary School is located at 3150 Fairfax Road, in Cleveland Heights.
The International Baccalaureate program aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
IB learners strive to be inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk takers, balanced and reflective.
The Fairfax event begins at 6 p.m. with a free multicultural dinner, followed by a student presentation and games to help children and adults learn more about the goals of IB learning, and the 10 attributes of IB learners.
