Study Session at Hall
Exhibition 2016

Hall 5th graders just embarked on the PYP(Primary Years Program) journey we call Exhibition.  Students are working in groups to conduct research on a topic related to the Transdisciplinary Theme- How We Express Ourselves.  The central idea for this extended unit is:

We can celebrate culture through artistic expression.

This year fifth graders will be working on their Exhibition projects with the assistance of around 35 General Mills mentors(Generation G).  The study sessions will be either hosted at Hall or at General Mills. 

To Our Elizabeth Hall Families:

Welcome to Elizabeth Hall IB School and the 2016-2017 school year!  We are so excited to have you as part of the Elizabeth Hall family.  Our school year started Monday, August 29th and our school day starts at 7:30 am.  We look forward to an exciting year as we move forward in the pursuit of innovative strategies to ensure all students achieve to their fullest potential.  We are pleased to return to the Elizabeth Hall community and look forward to many years as your administrators.  We hope your summer has gone well and you are excited for the beginning of the new school year.

This year will bring many opportunities for the staff and families of Elizabeth Hall to partner together to provide our students with an engaging, and high-quality school experience.  As parents with children, we understand the importance of a strong home-school connection. We are confident that by working together, we can make sure your child’s social, emotional, and academic needs are met.  The staff at Elizabeth Hall have certain responsibilities which we must fulfill in educating your child.  We will work tirelessly to provide an educational program that is appropriate to your child's needs. 

As Parents/Guardians, we also rely on your help in educating your child.  You can support your child’s learning by making sure that he/she comes to school every day, on time, and ready to learn.  You can provide support by encouraging your child to meet his/her responsibilities in school and with homework.  Your participation in school conferences, meetings and other school activities is also vital to your child’s success. We look forward to getting to know our families and parents throughout the year.
