Project Description

Students who form a tight bond with other students are more connected to the school and work together to help each other succeed.
– We stay connected by phone calls, text, hanging out in person to be sure each person is taken care of.
– We maximize time together by carpooling and checking in on each other and how their day is.
– We frequently visit each other at work to stay connected when one or more of us is busy.

Content: The top 3 things I learned from this showcase were:

The top three things we have learned from forming a tight friend group while attending a new school is that when you have people you can count on:

  • it helps you to have a higher sense of self-worth
  • friends take care of each other and push each other to do better with personal goals
  • having close friends makes school more enjoyable and it’s easier to get out of bed because we know they are at school to make our day better

Culture: This project relates or connects to my family, background, peers, community or my own personal interests in these ways:

This entire project is about our own personal community and how it has helped us be successful while in high school. We wanted to highlight how much having each other has benefitted us so other teenagers realize school is much better when you have people you can count on and be yourself around.

Metacognition: In reflection, one thing that I would have done differently during my journey with this showcase is:

Due to a couple of us quarantining, we haven’t been able to put together a presentation as we wanted. We would have developed a video to discuss how our friend group has made high school better for all of us.

Social/Emotional: One thing I am most proud of by completing this showcase is:

We are proud of the relationship we have all built together. High School isn’t easy for anyone, but by building a “family” unit of our own we made high school better than could have been without each other
