I wanted to apologise for the awkward timing of this newsletter... We've decided to start sending the newsletters out on Monday mornings since people might be more in the school and work mindset than on a Friday night. This change just got me a little confused, and my weekend was crazy, so this newsletter is late... Sorry about that, and I hope it didn't cause any trouble.

New This Week 
Did You Know...
Did you know the IB external assessments get sent all over the world for people in other cultures and countries to moderate?  This ensures that all IB criteria are followed based on clear, concise rubrics that can be assessed by anyone, anywhere (with training of course!)
The last papers and projects before exams in May are heading out next week and they will travel to: Maharshtra India, South Carolina, New York, Tamil Nadu India, Orkney United Kingdom, and Minnesota.  Good luck seniors!
Jazz Night
Sponsorship and auction items (both live auction and on line auction items) need to be in by this week, Wednesday April 15.  Gift cards are always beneficial.  
We still could use help with collecting basket decor (cellophane, artificial flowers, raffia, ribbon, etc) as well as white Christmas lights (please label them if you want them returned).
We hope to have the web site to purchase tickets live by this Friday April 10. 
Flyer here, and Sponsorship Information here.

Thank you!
