The entire Middle School will participate in our 2nd Annual Project Week during the week of Jan. 28-Feb. 1. The usual schedule of classes will be suspended in order to bring students, teachers, and local professionals together outside the confines of the typical classroom to share a broader range of learning experiences. In multi-grade-level teams, students will research a topic or issue of interest, propose a plan of action, defend solutions, and present their plan to a panel of teachers, administrators, board members, and community experts. Each group will have a set of requirements to fulfill, and, at the end of the project, will complete a reflection on what they have learned from this experience. The week is an opportunity to intentionally develop good teamwork skills, creative and critical thinking, and professionalism.
