Bates Middle School students feed those in need

Posted

Students from Erik Booker's Project Based Learning class at Bates Middle School took time to feed those in need in their own backyard. The students partnered with Emmanuel United Methodist Church to feed 57 individuals. The project was conceived of, planned and executed by the students as part of a greater school-wide Kindness Project. "I am really proud of our students. They did all the work on this event," Booker said. "It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes from General Patton, 'Don't tell people how to do things, tell them what to do and let them surprise you with their results.' All I did was provide a little guidance and supervision. This is truly project-based learning in action."
