The 3rd Annual PLP Expo is fast approaching. The PLP Expo is a capstone event for Stowe Middle School students to share and present their learnings through a passion project. All students are expected to present or be available to participate in a display for a gallery walk.
Based on feedback from last year’s PLP Expo, we have decided to split the event into two nights. Our hope is that this will better accommodate the large turn out.
For 6th & 7th graders, the event will be on April 25 from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.
For 8th graders, the event will be on May 7 from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.
