Inspired by a book of poetry, "The Best Part of Me" by Wendy Ewald, all students in grades 5 through 8 chose their best part and described why. This school-wide project allowed students to think of themselves in a positive light, boosting self-confidence. We teamed with the high school SWAT Team, who took the photos for the students. The middle school hallways are lined with almost 400 things that make students at Wilmington Area Middle School special! View the full gallery here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/ONVBDxVOdETbtrKC3
