An opportunity for all students & teachers to showcase their learning.  There will be student presentations, reenactments, demonstrations, and experiments.  There will also be student exhibitions of models, collections, and visual presentations.

In addition, we will host a student film festival, robotics demonstrations, and coding classes for parents taught by the students. Students can register to showcase their learning with their classroom teachers. All presentations & displays will be evaluated using 5 C's Evaluation Rubric.


Displays, Collections, and Models
