Last week I attended the Elective Extravaganza at North Middle School. It was a showcase of student projects with area businesses.
The Media Creations Class created 30 second commercials, while two other classes presented websites that they created. Students had the chance to work as a team with businesses and practice their public speaking while presenting their final projects.
I sat in on the Media Creations class back in October, and the students certainly learned a lot since then! Here are a few of the final commercials:
We appreciate the partnership with the following local businesses:
- Chocolate Falls
- Bank of Flowers
- Pink Lemonade Salon & Day Spa
- Poppy & Thyme
- Olive Branch Boutique on Main
- Gent’s Classic Barbershop
Thank you for helping our students learn! We are fortunate to have supportive business owners, parents and family members who helped star in and make these projects possible.
The event was very well done, North Middle School teachers and staff! Thanks for all of your hard work everyday! These electives help students explore career areas at the middle school level, while teaching lifelong skills of meeting deadlines, working with others, and public speaking.
