In Mr. Wirth’s Improv Community Hour, learning is active, noisy and often hilarious as students sharpen their Improv skills. Daily games and challenges are opportunities to develop leadership skills, practice teamwork, and build confidence. As time with our first quarter Community Hours is coming to an end, students in Mr. Wirth's Improv class expressed that the most memorable part of this class has been developing friendships with new people and finding a space where they can be their best selves. #ibtigerpride
Plan to attend "You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown" at IBHS this weekend (Friday - Sunday). The cast and crew have put together a tremendous show! #ibtigerpride
Mr. Brown returned to the classroom today - as a Community Hour teacher! Students in the Mindful Thrifting class have discussed what it means to be mindful, and their lesson today helped them understand what this means in neighborhoods. Engaged and challenged, students learned the history and nature of gentrification, as well as the difference between gentrification and revitalization. They also learned that their principals are still teachers, and their teachers are still learners!

Mr. Teel's Intro to DIY Community Hour students have been learning about the basic skills and tools needed for a variety of DIY projects. Most of the students in this Community Hour had never set foot in the Industrial Tech shop before, but this quarter they've had the opportunity to participate in a variety of hands-on activities, which included designing, creating, and installing a made-from-scratch information center for the middle school. Great job, DIYers! #ibtigerpride

This year, our IBES students have been learning all about our Tiger Traits as part of the PBIS programming. Students will learn about different positive character traits throughout the school year. During the month of September, students learned about the trait, Integrity. Students learned that integrity means being honest and having moral principles. All students participated in a lesson with Mrs. Craven to introduce to them what it means to have integrity and how to show integrity at school! Each Friday during announcements, students are reminded what it means to have integrity and are given a new mini-lesson or quote to remind them how to live with integrity. In addition, there is an interactive bulletin board visible to all students to remind them of the current trait they are learning. Students and teachers have the opportunity to give a “shout-out” to peers when they see them acting with the trait of the month. The “shout-outs” are collected, and a random name is drawn, before our next character trait is introduced, for a small prize!
