IB School in the News

Chandler High School adopted Tuesday, November 9th as their 'IB Day of Service'. They spent the day learning about sustainability and the global effects of hunger on our communities. They continued the day be working in the United Food Bank warehouse, loading, bagging and packaging over 1,050 emergency meals going directly to local families. Following their time at the United Food Bank and a rowdy picnic and game of kickball, they continued on to collect hundreds of non-perishable foods in a local neighborhood that were immediately delivered to the Chandler CARE Center, where families were already there waiting for the donations. This was an amazing day designed to give back to their community and now, AZIBS hopes to broaden this experience to all of our IB schools and communities. 

Kyrene Middle School students started a GoFundMe for their ASL teacher who was in need of new hearing aids which insurance wouldn't cover. Click here for the 3TV News Story!
