I anticipate the new level of professional gear will not only become a motivational tool for our students but will help them realize the full potential of their photography at this level. In terms of effectiveness on a departmental level, having a professional camera at school has become a life saver for me. I no longer feel obligated to bring my own professional gear back and forth from home risking damage in travel and taxing the gear for use in school.

50 students were affected by this creative project. The dramatic impact of the music was effective, which led to a number of discussions by the choir of how the music influences the meaning of poetry. The students enjoyed working with a living composer, who gave them many of his ideas about the work, and what he was thinking of while creating it.

Students are asked to identify three ways in which they can personally discourage and/or not encourage bullying behavior of themselves and others as well as three ways to support someone who lives with a disability. The students exceeded our expectations. 70% of the teachers completed evaluations. The ratings were based on the value of the workshop, skill of the presenters, curriculum and experiential exercises. We scored a 94% or 4.7 out of 5 with which we are very pleased.
