6th Grade Expedition: Me to We

Social Studies Case Study

6th graders proudly showcased their hard work at last week's Celebration of Lea rning. We were so impressed by the hard work students put forth to create their PSAs about Ebola. During the film festival, students viewed the top 9 (voted on by classmates) PSAs. These 9 videos were judged by a panel of guest judges. Three groups' PSAs were selected to go on to be filmed again with the guidance of the media arts teacher, Ms. Esposito, and her students at River Bluff High School. These newly produced PSAs will be showcased on the Lexington County website. More details to come once they make their debut!

A special thank you to Mrs. Palen, Coach Burnett, and Coach Miles for your guidance in this expedition case study. Also, thank you to Mrs. Dent and Ms. Kohout who provided so much help to students.

Great job gators!

Thank you for sharing your children with us each day!
