John Early Museum Magnet Middle School recently held an Exhibit Night during which students showed off what they had learned during the last nine weeks of school.
Feeding off the Museum theme the school has adopted, the exhibits and projects were on display just like any museum exhibit. The students served as curators and led their families through the exhibits.
In addition to viewing the student work, guests also witnessed a volcano explosion recreation, enjoyed the magnet honor choir’s rendition of a Taiwanese Folk Song, watched the 6th grade play, and were treated to an 8th grade Civil War Rap and a Latin Dance Performance.
The museum magnet theme is made possible by a $12 million grant awarded to MNPS to create magnet programs at six district schools: Robert Churchwell Museum Magnet Elementary, John Early Museum Magnet Middle, Pearl-Cohn Entertainment Industry Magnet, Hattie Cotton STEM Magnet Elementary, Bailey STEM Magnet Middle, and Stratford STEM Magnet High.
