FedEx Day is an event the Middle School students look forward to all year. This is a day that they take on a project of their choosing with the goal of “delivering it quickly” just as FedEx does. Students plan their projects in advance but have to complete the projects in a single day. The following day they present it to the class.
On Dec. 12, students got busy executing their Fed Ex Day plans. There were several parent volunteers available to assist the students in creating their projects. Problem-solving, critical thinking, and creative thinking are all skills that are used on this exciting day. These important skills are also embedded in the Middle School program every day as we strive to cultivate original thinkers. Many times, students learn as much or more from their errors then they do from their successes throughout this fun and innovative day.
