Students, Residents, Stories & Popcorn!

What an AMAZING week! I had the honor of working with some very talented teenagers during MCM’s Spring Break Backpack Journalism program. All I can really say is “Wow!”We had such a great time. This time around we spent the day at the beautiful Ingleside at King Farm to interview and tell the stories of the residents. It was such a remarkable experience for our students. They learned so much from the residents and I think it would be safe to say the residents enjoyed having them there. We ended the week on a high note with the students presenting their stories at our screening party. They were delighted when the “stars” of their stories arrived! It was such a great afternoon.  All in all it was a week to remember. If you missed out on all of the fun, make sure you check out our summer programs starting at the end of June!

I am also letting our newest Backpack Journalists take over my blog for a few days so they can share their stories with you. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Here’s a look at our week:
