Lifelong Learning

Last year, many of our students created great projects. They built, they made, they researched, they served others and they all learned. The learning didn't end when the school year ended. Some of our kids took their learning to a whole new level, even after the TED Talks, our culminating event to demonstrate learning, occurred. Steve, whose project was SNB Bass Baits, continued his learning by perfecting his lures and baits. Then he designed a web store and got it up and running. Now this eighth grader has an online business for his authentic, unique bass baits. All of this happened because Steve learned what Steve wanted to learn. Now this (Steve's blog):

Has become this (Steve's business):

We feel very strongly that we must personalize learning for our students and, when we do, their learning will take off and change lives. We know it did with several of our kiddos. We want out kids to know that if they can think it, they can achieve it!
