Announcements 5-27-14


On May 19th, Google published a case-study on St. Albans City School. The case study focused on two projects that some of our 7th and 8th graders have been involved with, but it's a celebration of all of the powerful learning opportunities that our students have.

The study starts with the City Lights project that USA students worked on three years ago and presented to the City Council two years ago. From their, it moves to the present (and future) with the St. Albans Recreation Reserve (Hard'ack/Aldis Hill trail restoration project) that the Renaissance community is currently working on and will continue to work on in the coming years.

Great work, SACS!
