Feb. 25th

This week’s student of the week is Julia Case.  Julia was nominated by Ms. Showalter because Julia is going to be the resident psychology expert in FCC English 102, which is a role we all need as we analyze character motivation. Julia is confident, respectful, and applies knowledge from previous courses to examine literature in critical lenses. Julia volunteered to record and post our recent graded discussion, which helped students in both sections of 102 with ideas for their upcoming essays. As this week’s student of the week, Julia will receive a coupon for one free admission to an Oakdale High School event.  Way to go Julia!

Last Friday, selected students from the StartUp Frederick Club competed in the inaugural Young Entrepreneur Elevator Pitch competition for cash prizes.

Great job to all club members!
