A sweet surprise for our IB Seniors!
Due to the COVID 19 shutdown of schools the annual IB senior cord ceremony paying tribute to the 2020 IB graduates was cancelled. Ms. Richburg, Ms. Newgent and our IB community wanted to do something special for our disapointed 80 seniors. Thus, the community secretely came together to surprise our graduates wih personalized gift baskets. The baskets were delivered on Saturday May 22 much to the delight of our seniors. Later in the evening our IB families participated in our first virtual senior cord ceremony while enjoying the treats found within their baskets.
Natalia Arroyo Ensemble
On Friday November 1, the Annapolis High School IB Diploma students 9-12, along with students from our PYP and MYP sister schools, Germantown Elementary and Annapolis Middle, were treated to a musical performance by the Natalia Arroyo Ensemble. The Mexican quartet performed traditional and contemporary music from northern and central Mexico. The quartet mixes pieces from Mexico with Latin rhythms using guitar, violin, double bass, and traditional instruments of the areas. The leader, Natalia Arroyo, is a multi-instrumentalist and composer and has performed in festivals and musical events throughout the world, including the Smithsonian Folk Festival in Washington, D.C.

Baltimore Shakespeare Factory
The Baltimore Shakespeare Factory conducted a workshop with our 10th grade IB Diploma students during 1st and 3rd periods. Students examined how Shakespeare used the technique of rhetoric within his various plays. The students were also given the opportunity to utilize their knowledge by performing a short piece in front of their peers.
