Informational Meeting About New IB Kindergarten Program Set For April 4
The meeting is for any elementary parents who are interested in learning about the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program at Streams.
Upper St. Clair School District will hold an informational meeting for elementary parents who wish to learn more about the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program.
The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. on April 4 in the Streams Elementary School gym.
The 2013-14 school year will be the first time IB kindergarten is offered in the Upper St. Clair School District. The move comes as Streams is converting to an all-IB school.
There is a waitlist that is maintained annually for the PYP program. Due to space limitations, preference is given to students whose home school is Streams.
The deadline for PYP application forms (K-4) is April 25.
Parents of students in the Streams attendance area who do not wish to enroll in PYP may enroll their child at Baker Elementary. School visits to Baker can be arranged on an individual basis. The deadline for Streams parents to select Baker is also April 25.
Questions regarding the district elementary enrollment process may be directed to Ellie Stoehr, supervisor of pupil personnel, at 412-833-1600 ext. 2214 or the schools' principals.
