ASB Sponsored Classroom Challenge

Each month our ASB sponsors a  Classroom Video Challenge.  The criteria change each month, as well as the classes involved in the challenge.  For the month of January, all first period classes were encouraged to produce a short video depicting what is great about their class.  Julie Riedmiller’s English 2 class won for this month.  Ms. Riedmiller said, “Together we brainstormed different ideas to display a safe, caring, learning environment in English 2.  The students voted to go with a ‘MTV Cribs’ concept. Three students worked for hours editing, adding music, etc. to produce a depiction of our class.”  Their hard work paid off, and they were excited to win!
