M2 8th Graders Prepare for Exhibition at the City of Raleigh Museum

This week after school Moore Square eighth grade student volunteers have been busy at the City of Raleigh (COR) Museum helping to finalize an exhibit created by the entire 8th grade class and will open Friday, April 5 at the museum. Since the spring of 2018 Moore Square Magnet Middle School has been collaborating with the COR Museum, its downtown neighbor just a few blocks away, to produce an exhibit created by Moore Square students. In the fall of 2018 all eighth grade Social Studies students, taught by Bethany Meyers and Rachel Sweeney, began research projects on immigration & family history with the culmination of their work in an exhibit entitled: “Our Families’ Treasures—stories from Moore Square Magnet Middle School”. The City of Raleigh Museum is located at 220 Fayetteville Street in downtown Raleigh. There will be a closed reception for Moore Square eighth grade students, their families, and invited guests—WCPSS and City of Raleigh officials— on Friday, April 5 from 4:00 – 6:00 pm at the museum with a brief program at 5:00 pm. The exhibit will open to the public at 6:00 pm that evening and run through June 30, 2019. Museum visitors can view 120 student projects including photos and family stories, a student-produced video, a feedback area for visitors to submit written responses to the exhibit, and an interactive map for visitors to share their path to Raleigh.
