CORVALLIS - The first Corvallis Schools Academic Showcase will take place on Tuesday, April 5, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the high school gym. The showcase is a celebration of the academic and creative achievements of Corvallis students and an opportunity for the entire community to see and learn about the work that goes on in the schools.

This will be a chance to meet and talk with students and teachers and view and experience some of the many accomplishments of students from kindergarten through high school.

The showcase will feature independent projects by K-8 students, kindergarten writing projects, and fourth-grade class projects. Fifth-graders will display their animal research projects and sixth-graders will demonstrate video work.

There will be exhibits by the high school and middle school Robotics Programs, the state champion Corvallis Middle School Science Olympiad Team and the BRASS program, which links middle school students and scientists from Rocky Mountain Laboratories.

High school, middle school and first grade art will be on display. The high school's Classroom Without Walls program will be featured. Community members will have a chance to talk with teachers about the Montana Behavior Initiative and the 21st Century After School Program.

Throughout the evening, there will be regularly scheduled performances by choir, string instrument and band students. High school students will perform their Living Biography creations. The high school music lab will be open for demonstrations of the opportunities it provides for students.

The Academic Showcase is sponsored by the Corvallis Schools and by the Corvallis Schools Foundation. The foundation is a nonprofit community/ school organization dedicated to supporting and enhancing educational opportunities for Corvallis students.

"The Academic Showcase will be a wonderful chance for community members to experience firsthand some of the great things that go on in our schools," said Corvallis Schools Foundation President Ray Dunbar, "Our community has so many reasons to be proud of what our students can do."

Before the Academic Showcase, attendees are invited to a spaghetti feed from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in the Corvallis School Lunchroom, hosted by parents to support eighth-grade promotion activities.
