All students wanted an opportunity to present their slide shows to their parents.  An afternoon was set aside for presenting PowerPoints.  Since we had a captive audience, the students presented our play on Philip Long.  Students beamed as they presented their work.  Two very shy students presented their slide show with confidence and competence to the amazement of us all.
