STUDENTS can show off their learning in 4 ways:

- Breakout Sessions: students will facilitate 20-minute presentations for small groups. Students, or teams of students, will present the outcome of a project or share a learning experience.
- Shark Tank: Is your student an aspiring entrepreneur? Participants will make business presentations to a panel of "shark" investors, who then choose whether or not to “invest.” Winners will be announced that day!
- Performances: The Fine Arts department will be organizing student performances throughout the day.
TEACHERS AND STAFF are invited to facilitate breakout sessions on the innovative practices occurring at their schools either individually or in teams. Presenters will have up to 50 minutes for a "deep dive" session to share innovative practices and projects, provide information to the community regarding services or initiatives, conduct focus groups or panels, etc.
