Somers Middle School is in the process of applying for certification in the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (IB MYP). This means that middle school students in Somers will be taught following the IB framework, which encourages students to make practical connections between their studies and the real world. In other words, the IB framework is in concert with Somers Central School District's vision of developing students who are global citizens, learning 21st-century knowledge and skills, and developing empathy and interest in other parts of the world. 

In this podcast, four middle school teachers who have been to official MYP training workshops discuss what it is like to revamp their lessons and assessments (the new lingo for quizzes and tests) in the MYP style. They are interviewed by Somers High School Principal Mark Bayer, who is part of a team studying whether to bring MYP to the ninth and tenth grades.

Bucket Fillers are students who have exhibited kindness, caring, and helpfulness at school. In this video, second-graders at Primrose read aloud to their classmates why their friends were nominated as Bucket Fillers by their teachers.
