The Morris Jeff community, including students, staff, family, and friends are invited to attend the upcoming 8th Grade IB Community Project Showcase.


Wednesday, March 27, 4:00 – 5:30 pm


Morris Jeff Community School, Drew Campus Cafeteria

3819 Saint Claude, New Orleans, LA 70117

Enter through the playground gate on Marais Street.


Eighth graders will present on a chosen humanitarian project that takes action in service to the local community. Students work with each other to accomplish their objectives and learn project management, effective communication, and collaboration as they set out to meet their goals. The Community Project is a formative experience to learn by doing and experiencing challenges of global significance. 

The Showcase is a marker of growth and development within the Middle Years Programme, which runs from Grades 6-10 at Morris Jeff. During the Showcase, all 8th grade students share about the projects, what they learned, how they collaborated with others, the impact they created, and how they can expand their reach in the future. This event is a celebrated milestone and valuable experience of a student’s IB education.
