King Middle School will be hosting its 24th annual Celebration of Learning on Thursday, May 17  from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Portland Expo.

As students at an EL Education Mentor School, King’s sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-graders delve into meaningful and authentic interdisciplinary units, called expeditions, and produce high quality products to demonstrate their understanding.

Teams have been investigating solutions to climate change, learning about truth and manipulation and exploring the pathways that our food travels before it hits our plates.  They have been researching the effects of storm water run-off, collaborating with Maine Audubon to produce documentaries about insects and creating original works of art inspired by French and Spanish artists.

Students will be discussing these products at the Celebration Of Learning. This event is free and open to the community. The public is welcome to visit King to view these products and to engage with students about their learning.

The Celebration of Learning occurs in conjunction with the two-day national EL Education Site Seminar. Educators from across the country will visit our school to learn about King’s innovative, exciting, and successful approach to learning.

For more information on attending the Site Seminar, please contact King at (207) 874-8140 or visit: king.portlandschools.org
