It’s the last week of second trimester and its havoc for all high school students; not to mention the final say over grades and passing classes. With the daily rush and the weight of homework, students have on the last week of March, it’s hard to believe they all can survive – and especially knowing third trimester will be bringing a new style of project-based learning at Forrest Bird Charter High School.
The sophomores through seniors will have their schedules changed under the means of the next big school project: community service. Helping the community, improving the town of Sandpoint, and showing off a creative mind are all a part of the project, but some sophomores disapprove of the assignment. Because the community project, it requires teenagers of FBCS to go out into the world and interact with the community to provide service to them. Of course, this leads some teens, those introverted or more independent, to disapproving of the more extroverted project. Also, a great displeasure from the percent of kids who don’t want the next trimester project to take place, also don’t approve of schedule changes.
Schedule changes, for sophomore through senior students, will consist of morning periods switching to an all-school class to receive lectures to impact their final project or entering the public to do their project. Luckily, for those who dislike the community service projects have an alternative set of projects to be accomplished that do not require leaving school campus. On the other hand, freshman will not be changing schedules. For them, everything will remain the same but some think that they should change their periods with their higher peers. Unfortunately, freshman will have to wait until tenth grade to partake in schedule changes for third trimester.
