High School Friday 2015

Community Room 301 & 302

A program-rich schedule is designed to engage students in the Wisconsin Common Core Standards within a dynamic learning environment. Through meaningful interaction with authors, performers, storytellers, and peers, students become active members of the Madison community. They will gain confidence, exposure, and insight while applying skills in reading, writing, language, speaking and listening in the real world.  The focus of this year’s High School Friday is to highlight the ability of telling personal stories to change who we are and how we see the world, showcasing multiple creative avenues that can be pursued through college and career preparedness.
 
Lunch provided in partnership with Ian's Pizza.
