Faith West Academy Students Convince Administration to Implement Five News Ideas

Faith West Academy Eighth Grade language arts classes


March 6, 2019

Faith West Academy eighth grade language arts students were given an assignment to develop a project that would benefit the school. For eight weeks, the students conducted research, designed flyers, wrote formal letters, and scripted their pitches, which were all presented to school administrators on February 26.

Each student team had three minutes to convince school administrators to implement their projects during the 2019/2020 school year.

Several of the students were successful and administrators announced that five of the projects presented would be implemented for the next school year.
