What is IBPO?
Our IB Parent Organization is integral in the support of the children, their success, the school and the faculty, and the program. The IBPO meets throughout the year to disperse general information about the program, discuss fundraisers to offset testing costs, set up a volunteer schedule to provide food and snacks for school and student events, plan or support student events like 9th Grade Orientation, the IB Retreat, the IB Trivia night.
Additionally, the parents support one another and the kids as they have chosen a challenging program and set of classes.

GROCERY CARDS To Accrue funds toward IB Testing Fees: At each IB meeting we are selling King Soopers and Safeway gift cards for $10. These cards can be reloaded multiple times and for every amount of money loaded on to the card, you will get 5% back to accrue in an account for your student to help pay for IB Testing Fees. See Deb Alvarado-Rocha at the meetings to purchase your card.
TRIVIA NIGHT: TBD-We encourage students, staff and teachers to assemble teams of 5 to compete for bragging rights as Trivia Night Victors! The cost is $25 per team, or $5 per person. Teams are encouraged to wear costumes, think up a team name and bring snacks for your table to share. Lots of prizes are given out, so be part of the fun!
