2016 Sponsorship Proceeds

Did you know that a school wishing to implement the IB PYP program is required to make a commitment to ongoing teacher professional development?  Additionally, the school must be committed to an inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning that promotes inquiry and the development of critical thinking skills.  The Units of Inquiry utilized at MPES are transdisciplinary themes that serve as the framework of every IB classroom.

The IB Foundation would like to announce that the proceeds from Sponsorships and the 2016 Annual Auction will go directly to the International Baccalaureate program at Morikami.  The funds will be utilized to purchase in-classroom materials (such as books, videos, posters and resource kits) that support the IB Units of Inquiry.  These materials need to be updated every 3 years and have been selected by teachers from all grade levels as a ‘must-have.’  Additionally, if funding permits, the IB Foundation would like to provide Level 3 IB training for a select number of teachers at Morikami. 

Please help us reach our goal of supplying every classroom from kindergarten through the 5th grade with updated IB materials for our students.  It’s the International Baccalaureate program that makes Morikami the remarkable school that it is!

We kindly ask you to consider sponsoring the Morikami Park IB Foundation for the 2015-2016 school year.  You can do so by completing the attached Sponsorship Form and returning it to the MPES Front Office (ATTN: IB Foundation).  You can also remit payment securely online by visiting and clicking on the “Donate” tab.  Scroll down the page and click on the yellow “Donate” icon which will allow you the option of paying via PayPal or with a credit/debit card.

Thank you in advance for helping us to make a difference in the lives of the children who attend Morikami Park Elementary.  If you have any questions about sponsorships, please feel free to contact us at
