Hello parents,

Here are some exciting things coming up and some important announcements.


MIS hosts a talk about the IB

Missoula International School is hosting this event next Thursday and Julie Lennox would appreciate your help with inviting friends who may be interested in learning more about Missoula International School and the broader implications for IB education in Missoula. Please pass it on!

As we think about Missoula’s future and our rapidly changing economy, we are seeing more schools in Missoula turn to the IB, or International Baccalaureate Program.  Julie Lennox, Head of School at Missoula International School, will be joined by Kevin Ritchlin, IB Coordinator for MCPS, and UM’s Office of International Programs Director, Paulo Zagalo-Melo,  to talk more about the impact of this program in the Missoula Valley and its trans-formative potential for our schools and economy.  We will also hear from a current student who is finding success in the IB Diploma Program at Hellgate High School.  We hope to see you there!



Library books are due

Please return all library books to your child’s classroom, the green crate in the upstairs hallway or the red bin in the library.  Lost book fines will be assessed on June 3rd.  Thanks for your help and cooperation. Please contact Laura with any questions that you may have at  [email protected]
