While parents and alumni of Barstow may be well-versed in the traditions of the Sophomore Research Paper project, they may not know that the project now features a higher-tech component. After the papers were polished and turned in, sophomores made short documentaries to highlight their research. The result: films that sing with smarts and humor, creativity and information. The students invite and encourage the Barstow community to view these gems.
Seventh graders Louis Christifano, Gwen Laub, Amanda Munsell, Eric Wright, and Ali Yoon, along with eighth graders Brooklynn Arment, Annie James, Stella Kahl, Sammi Matula, Luke Oldroyd, Elaina Polese, Robbie Putney, and Lily Sykora, earned second place in the small-school division at the Brittany Hill speech tournament.
