RACING

RACING
Each year at Jesse Boyd our students work very hard to achieve more than is expected of them. They do this by completing task beyond their classwork and homework because a JBE student is someone who does more than is expected. 91% of JBE students earned their monster status last year. We are so proud of our students and how you showed grit and perseverance. This year our students will become DRIVERS. Why is our theme racing? Racers show so many of the IB Learner Profile attributes and IB attitudes that we try as IB learners to exemplify each and every day: Curiosity Principled Risk-takers Caring Communicators Enthusiasm Creativity Integrity Cooperation Confidence Inquirers Thinkers Appreciation Reflection Racers also show great commitment to their goal. They practice every day and get better and better until they #finishtherace. Racers also understand that sometimes you have to go slow to go fast and our students will learn all about that while they go through the curriculum. The other component of racing is team work. For example in NASCAR, a driver can’t do it without the crew chief, pit crew, sponsors, fans, and teammates. Our students will learn to use their communication skills and learn to collaborate along the way. We are super excited about watching our students become drivers when they #finishtherace
