Harper Junior High Freshmen Capture Personal Milestones

   FS4.jpgFS3.jpg



On Thursday, May 21, the Harper students shined in the annual "Freshman Showcase." Harper Principal, Kerin Keller, described the unique program as one designed to encourage students to reflect on their past, think about the present and predict their futures.  Throughout the year, the Harper freshmen compile a portfolio of samples of work, assessments, an education plan and a reflective paper. The event last Thursday was the culminating presentation to the “Freshman Showcase.”

Each freshman presented to a panel or small committee, including staff, parents and community members. Principal Kerin Kelleher shared, "The whole experience is so powerful." Students from diverse backgrounds face their individual fears to describe where they’ve been and what they’ve learned so far in their young lives.  Kelleher continued, "It is a learning experience on many levels. There wasn't a dry eye in the house."
