  • 5th Grade Exhibition Students

    At Eastside when IB (International Baccalaureate) students are near the end of 5th grade they are ending their time as Primary Years Programme (PYP) students and will enter the Middle Years Programme (MYP) for 6th-8th grade. One of the requirements of IB is that all 5th grade students participate in what is called Exhibition. This is a culminating experience and opportunity for these students to exhibit the attributes of the IB Learner Profile they have been developing throughout their time as a PYP student. Along with a mentor, they are required to engage in a collaborative, transdisciplinary inquiry process that involves them identifying, investigating and offering solutions to real-life issues or problems. Southeastern education students, under the direction of Dr. Deborah McCarthy, and HHMS Diploma Programme (DP) students, served as mentors for our Exhibition students this year.

    The students pictured are two separate groups; both researched and decided to pursue the topic of Homelessness. One group received a $100 donation from Target in Hammond to purchase hygiene products and also received a donation of toothbrushes and toothpaste from Louisiana Dental Center to create care packages. The other group held a clothing drive at school and collected numerous bags of clothes and shoes to donate. The nearly 150  5th graders at Hammond Eastside will showcase their Exhibition projects on Thursday night, April 27th beginning 6:00 in the gym.
