Each spring, seniors at Watershed School in Camden design and complete a semester-long graduation project that demonstrates mastery of the skills and understanding gained during their high school years. The projects, which range in topics from science to art to community engagement, all have one central requirement — they need to make the world a better place.
Watershed seniors will present their senior projects on Thursday, June 7, at 5 p.m. at St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church in Camden. This year’s projects include student health and wellness, cultural understanding via Tai Chi, environmental conservation, growing small businesses, promoting animal shelters, education immersion, art in midcoast Maine, and traveling/study abroad programs.
Graduation will be held on Saturday, June 9, at 4 p.m. at the John Street United Methodist Church in Camden.
Following graduation, Watershed School will celebrate its 15th anniversary at the school, at One Free Street in Camden, with music by the Gawler Family, contra dancing, food by Me Lon Togo, and more.
All are welcome to attend all the events.
