Sandy van Nooten commented on IB developments andthe ongoing exams. Neil Woods summarized the service learning program and Mike Dickinson and Iattempted to provide some context to the HS goals that we had set ourselves for this year. It has been atruly rewarding educational experience for both faculty and students and once again I look eagerlyforward to improving on an already solid foundation as we make plans for next year.At this time of the year it is always difficult to say farewell to faculty who for various reasons havedecided to move on from ISM and or Manila.
