The Middle School Community Time occurs every three weeks and includes birthdays, kahoots on different aspects of the MYP, kudos for our community members, birthdays, announcements, House games, and a Leadership Spotlight which focuses on people in the world who exemplify our IB Learner Profile.
This week our Leadership Spotlight highlighted one of our very own ISD students, our 6th grader Rebecca Bashi. She was highlighted for excellence as a communicator. She is a published author, and was named as one of the 45 distinguished Congolese personalities of 2021.
Over the past months, some of the people highlighted for excellence include Sara Saeed, a doctor who has created a telemedicine delivery system for remote areas of Pakistan, Sonam Wangchuk, an engineer who is using glacier water to irrigate crops, Dr. Krithi Karanth, a doctor who is working to lessen animal - human conflict, and Luis Rocha, a deep sea diver and scientist working to protect the oceans.
Well done, Rebecca!
