Some 8th-grade thoughts on the project itself:


“Overall I used all the skills that I had learned in Junior High to complete this project, which is pretty cool! My favorite part was making the short film!”- Daniela Salazar


“If I were to give any advice, it would be to get started, and get done early.” – Antonia D’ Auria


“It was a bad project for me. I had to restart two days before it was due.” – David Morales


“I personally enjoyed capstone. I know most people would completely disagree, but I really enjoyed researching something that I am passionate about, and being able to demonstrate this research in another form other than an essay.”- Grace Brewer   


“Capstone was a very stressful project for most people, however, once we present our topics, it is like a weight lifted off our shoulders and it feels so great to finish it and I love seeing our classmates support each other when we are nervous. “ – Maria Wojick


Everyone should be very proud of themselves for completing this rigorous project. Congratulations, and good luck to all who will have to complete this project in the future. Be organized, determined, and avoid procrastinating.
