Senior projects were impressive


    Your excellent article and pictures in the Jan. 23 issue (“High school seniors show off their works”) reminded me of the letter I wanted to write to commend the Blaine County School District. I attended the Senior Project Day and was so impressed by the quality of the projects, their variety and the enthusiasm of the students. They were so excited to talk about the things they had learned, about the great help their mentors had given them and about their plans for the future.
    Completing this project not only has taught them many things, but also given them confidence that they can move forward and accomplish the goals they set for their lives after high school. This is education at its best, and we can be very proud of a school system that has developed this program.
    The variety of the projects was astounding, for learning occurred in diverse settings, from a pre-school class for learning-disabled children to the emergency room at the hospital, and from the basketball court to artists’ and musicians’ studios. Students from different socioeconomic backgrounds chose topics of interest and value to them, were courteous in answering questions about their projects and were excited to talk about what they had learned and their future plans.
    Hats off to our high school seniors, and the teachers, staff and mentors who made this happen.
