Kindergartener Celeste points out her house in the three-dimensional floor map of Crozet in Lauri Campbell’s class on Brownsville BeeHive Night. The annual expo features student projects and demonstrations all over the school for parents and other visitors to explore.
First dubbed the “Sock Hop” three years ago, this springtime energy-filled dance party has morphed into “Eaglepalooza,” where Crozet Elementary students go wild on the gym floor. Run by a group of dads, the event features a live DJ (Ty Chambers), strobe lights, and snacks. The event is not a drop-and-go; instead, the vibe is for parents to mix and mingle among themselves, occasionally peeking in on their neon-festooned kiddos. “It’s so much fun to watch them enjoy themselves and just DANCE,” said principal Gwedette Crummie. “They really look forward to it every year.”

Jack C. displays his menu from the Depression Dinner Project in Eric Strzepek’s history class during Henley Middle School’s Expo Night. As part of their study of the Great Depression, students had to plan a family dinner menu costing no more than $6.25 (for four people), and assess how they felt about both making it and eating it.

During Henley Middle School’s Expo Night, seventh grader Jack B. shows off his 3D-printed canoe, a project in Jon Barber’s Technology class. The project involved design principles, trial and error, and mastering the tech itself, and opens the door to tons of 3D printing possibilities for the students.
