IB Pinning Ceremony

The IB Pinning Ceremony commemorates the transition of IB juniors from the pre-diploma program to their official entry into the IB Diploma Program.  The IB Pinning Ceremony is scheduled for September 26th, 2019, at 7pm in the St. Pete High School Auditorium. It takes a lot of hard work and dedication for the class of 2021 to get to this point, and the best is yet to come!  

Please join us this memorable ceremony to honor our students on this wonderful success. Light refreshments will follow immediately afterwards. 

For questions or if you would like to volunteer, please contact our Pinning Chair, Dana Gwaltney 727-656-4850.
