Over 1,500 students, parents and community members attended the annual MISD Education Showcase held at Midlothian High School on May 18. Students in grades K-12 demonstrated lessons represented in four core subject areas: English, math, science, social studies and many elective classes. The district curriculum is based on guided lessons designed by teachers who provide engaging work for students on a daily basis. The Education Showcase is one way to celebrate students' work. It's also a way for younger students to be exposed to projects and examples of the upper grade levels.
"MISD was pleased with the large turn out for the Showcase again this year. The students did an outstanding job displaying their work and answering questions about their experiences," said Diane Gossett, Director of Curriculum.
