LEXINGTON, S.C. — Lexington Elementary students and Art Teacher Rebecca Spires recently installed a crayon mural at their school. Students and teachers donated 2,000 of their old and used crayons to the art room for the mural. First- through fifth-graders collaborated to peel and break the crayons, then sort them by color. The students glued the crayons into the shape of the world and added the 10 International Baccalaureate Learner Profile attributes.
At Lexington Elementary, students are learning and discovering “Who We Are” as a school. Students learn how to become inquirers, thinkers, communicators and risk-takers. Students also work to become knowledgeable, principled, open-minded, caring, balanced and reflective. By studying these 10 IB Learner Profile attributes students become lifelong learners.
“Lexington Elementary is excited to pursue becoming the first elementary school in the district to become an International Baccalaureate school,” says Lexington Elementary Principal Jim Hamby.
