Columbus East High School
Senior Board Information
Senior Project Presentations are on May 21 & 22, 2013, from 12:30 pm to 3 PM.
Students will be served lunch on both days in the Cafeteria from 11:30 AM - 12:15 PM.
The FACS Department will offer lunch both days for faculty/staff and senior board judges only, from 11 AM - 12:30 PM. (All proceeds go to meeting costs for the FCCLA National Leadership Conference.)
Buses will transport East students home at 12:15 PM. All students will participate in the SENIOR PROJECT FIELD TRIP both afternoons. Underclassmen are required to either observe presentations, or they may go off campus to research a potential senior project. All underclassmen will submit a written paper about their two afternoons to their English teacher. If a student does not ride a bus home, he is responsible for his transportation after senior boards conclude or if he goes off campus for senior project research purposes.
The senior project presentations will take place from 12:30 – 3 PM at Columbus East High School. The review boards consist of five members: two Columbus East High School faculty members and three community members. The community members include representatives from local businesses and industries, parents, East High School alumni, local and state government officials, post-secondary institutions, youth serving organizations, the ecumenical community, and the BCSC School Board.
The presentations are the final stage of senior projects. Students present to the review boards what they learned, the process they went through to complete their projects, and the challenges they faced throughout the projects. The presentations will last approximately ten minutes, followed by five minutes of questions from the review board members. Senior projects measure content, context, higher order thinking, multi-disciplinary learning, creativity, ingenuity, resourcefulness, problem-solving, and many other skills valued by higher educational institutions and the business and industry world.
All senior project presentations are open to the public as Columbus East High School seniors will demonstrate not only what they know, but also what they can do and how they challenged themselves to grow.
The schedule for the senior project presentations on May 21 and May 22, 2013 is:
Following the completion of their presentations, the students will ring the Bell of Champions on the second floor in the Family and Consumer Science Atrium area. Lemonade and cookies will be served to celebrate the culmination of senior projects.
