Recently, International Baccalaureate Program (IB) students in the Class of 2018 were in Detroit for a Service Day as part of the Creativity, Activity, and Service (CAS) component of the IB curriculum.
The students helped the non-profit organization “Repair the World,” and painted a mural by Holden and Lincoln Streets, in Detroit. The location is northwest of the intersection of the Lodge (I-96) and Ford (I-94) freeways.
Mr. Brad Cusumano, the IB CAS Coordinator for DLS, organized the field trip.
Eight of the 19 juniors (Class of 2018) in the IB program headed to Montana and the Blackfeet community on September 11, 2017, and then to Glacier National Park to collect data for the National Park Service, similar to the May 2016 experience of the current seniors. Read story
The remaining juniors will be in the New Orleans area April 2-8, 2017 to work on the St. Bernard Project. A non-profit organization established in March 2006 to rebuild homes destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, the St. Bernard Project is located in St. Bernard Parish in southeast Louisiana.
