For the past several months, Mrs. Kauffman’s and Mr. LaVogue’s students have been working with teaching artist Jennifer O’Brien to create short content-related videos. Mr. LaVogue’s classes made two movies, “Good Morning Egypt,” and “What’s Up Egypt.” Mrs. Kauffman’s students created a stop-action movie called “How a Bill Becomes a Law.” This project was undertaken in partnership with Building Learning Communities Through Arts and Culture which is sponsored by the Palm Beach Council Cultural Council. This is the third year of this partnership.
The students held an on-campus premier on November 30, and invited special guests to attend. Mrs. Kauffman’s 5th block class invited Al Jacquet and Rober Powell, both Legislative Aides to Representative Mack Bernard. The gentlemen talked to students about the government, the three branches, and much more. The students had the privilege of a question and answer session. They made their speeches fun and interesting, and they held the studentss attention. They also had treats for all of the students. Mr. Jacquet even requested a copy of the video share with other legislators in Tallahassee. Mr. LaVogue’s special guest was Christine Christofek with the Solid Waste Authority. Her speech was appropriate since all of the resources for both videos were made from recycled materials provided by Resource Depot. Other special guests for both premiers were Ms. O’Brien, Connie Christman of Resource Depot, Alyx Killington of the Cultural Council, Jan Rodusky, and Dr. Gail Bunaford.
The movie premier is coming to the Downtown West Palm Beach Waterfront on December 8th, 2011 @ 6:00pm. – 9:00pm. You can see the movie during Sand and Sea-Sun’s Greetings from West Palm Beach.
