Welcome To IB Connection

We are so happy to have interested and involved parents as part of our group. The King IB Connection consists of parent volunteers dedicated to enriching the IB experience for students, parents, faculty and administrators of King High School’s IB Diploma Programme. We achieve our mission in a number of ways:

Quarterly Connection Meetings

Parents are welcome to our quarterly general meeting to hear IB program highlights, meet other parents and learn about the latest IB Connection activities. Meetings are held in the King media center at 6 p.m., once a quarter.

Parent to Parent

Parents with general IB parenting concerns can contact our Parent to Parent Chair who is ready to provide a listening ear and some useful tips on how to navigate a successful course through the IB program.

Parent Partnership

Please join us as a Partner in your student’s education at King!  Parents are invited to join our Parent Partnership group with a $32.00 donation. This is our annual fundraiser to benefit the Teacher “Wish List”, which covers extra classroom and technology items needed by our IB teachers to enhance our students’ learning environment, and helps offset the expenses to sponsor grade-level activities throughout the year.   Parent Partnership membership includes one student PTSA membership and  a free student-designed IB t-shirt!  To join, please visit our Parent Partnership page.

Student Events

IB Connection supports events throughout the year which enhance the IB experience for our students. Freshmen are treated to a barbecue lunch the first week of the school year, Sophomores are treated to a dessert celebration after their AP Euro Exam in the Spring, the Junior Pinning ceremony is held in the Fall, and the Senior Banquet celebrates the culmination of four years work, as our students graduate.  Other fellowship events for parents and students take place throughout the year, depending on interest and volunteer availability.

Fundraising

In order to raise funds for student events, faculty appreciation, and catering for our meetings, the IB Connection raises funds in a number of ways; such as Parent Partnership drives and donations. We welcome ideas for additional fundraiser opportunities any time.
