Together we can make your childs test experience positive and successful. </p><p>IB PYP Notes: Please support our Wharton PTOs Spring Gala THIS Friday, March 28th. The money raised through this event is very important for the continuation of our IB PYP Program. These funds are what pay for professional development for our faculty, staff and administration, substitutes to cover teachers classes so that we have time to plan and reflect collaboratively, and the resources our students need to further their inquiry. We have come so far toward becoming an authorized IB World School and now is the time to continue the momentum! </p><p>Report Card Day for Kinder 8th Grade: </p><p>This Friday, March 28th. </p><p>Its finally here!
