              Dear Makowski Families,


              We are going to have our first "Trunk or Treat" event at Makowski.

              On Oct 21st, 23rd and 26th, families can drive into our Best Street parking lot, drive up to "trick or treat" at the curb, see your teachers, grab your next packet of student work, and have some fun! You do not have to get out of your car! Please see the exact times and dates depending on your grade level. There are separate sessions to ensure social distancing.

              If you need a flu shot, you can drive around the lot to the clinic, and they will be offering flu shots and update any information you need to share with them.


              There will also be tech help for families in need and meal distribution as well. You will be able to park and enter the building at the clinic doors for these.


              Please join us for this fun, family event!

              Email jlmohorter@buffaloschools.org with any questions.


              See you next week!!

              anti bullying


              Please take a few minutes to talk with your child(ren) about bullying-what it looks like, sounds like, feels like.


              Bullying can happen in person and online in cyber based form.


               If you have any concerns or questions, please reach out to your child's teacher, our counseling team at Makowski or call the main office and we will put you in the right hands.


              We cannot take this lightly. Here are a few links that might help when speaking to your kids.

              What is the Primary Years Program (PYP)?

              The International Baccalaureate® (IB) Primary Years Programme is a curriculum framework designed for students aged 3 to 12.

              The PYP transdisciplinary framework focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both at school and beyond.

              Informed by research into how students learn, how educators teach, and the principles and practice of effective assessment, the programme places a powerful emphasis on inquiry-based learning.


              What the PYP offers students

              By choosing to implement the PYP, schools will develop students’ academic, social and emotional wellbeing, focusing on international-mindedness and strong personal values. The PYP nurtures independent learning skills, encouraging every student to take responsibility for their learning.

              The programme incorporates local and global issues into the curriculum, asking students to look at six related, transdisciplinary themes and to consider the links between them. The themes include ‘who we are’, ‘where we are in place and time’ and ‘how the world works’.


              PYP Curriculum

              The Primary Years Programme (PYP) presents schools with a comprehensive plan for high quality, international education.

              It provides schools with a curriculum framework of essential elements — the knowledge, concepts, skills, attitudes, and action that young students need to equip them for successful lives, both now and in the future.

              Schools work with the five elements to construct a rigorous and challenging primary curriculum for international education.

              The PYP aims to create a curriculum that is engaging, relevant, challenging and significant for learners in the 3–12 age range. The curriculum is transdisciplinary, meaning that it focuses on issues that go across subject areas.


              The PYP is organized according to:

              Mission Statement
