A shout out to Sophomores for sharing their Personal Projects! Students and teachers packed the LMC to learn from our Sophomores about their self-selected research as a culmination of the MYP program. Computer programming and construction, drawing and quilting, sports and psychology...there's something interesting for everyone involved.
For her Personal Project, sophomore Emma Baron combined her love of running with her concern about poverty in Colorado Springs to create the first Winter Dash 5K. Because of her Personal Project, Emma donated $500 and two boxes of food to the Colorado Springs Rescue Mission. Look for it again next winter. Way to go, Emma!
