    Location: Northpoint Expeditionary Learning Academy, 1st Street, Prescott, AZ, United States

    Description: Celebrations of Learning and Expo
    A celebration of learning or expo is a public demonstration that lets students show parents, teachers, and members of the community what they are learning and doing in school. All students are required to participate as a part of their academic assessment. The presentations may exhibit artwork, research, the results from an experiment, written work, tests, or other projects. Examples include a public forum, a museum format, a movie screening, or a student production. These events are an important way for us to celebrate student effort and to hold students and the school accountable to parents and others who are concerned about our school and student success. Attendance at these events is required of all NELA students. At the end of each semester a Celebration of Learning is held to showcase some of the best work and accomplishment of learning targets. After the completion of an intensive course students will share a variety of final products through the Expo event. Parents, community members, board members, staff, and friends are encouraged to attend these events.
