Rogers' Passion Projects


For the last 9 weeks, 8th grade Students in Mr. Rogers' Enriched Intervention class have been steadily working on their Passion Projects, projects that they get to think up and create. The only requirement is that the topics should be something each student is passionate about.

8th graders Kareena McCauley and Haley Albright created a short lesson on sign language.

Sabrinnah Cognion and Evalynn Tice created an environmentally conscious presentation on the negative impacts of plastics on the planet, with help from Squirt, the turtle!

Lastly, Bryce Murray took us through the evolution of the electric guitar, and even played for us some of his favorite songs. Great job Mustangs!
