Saco Middle School Hosts “Sebago Speaks” Event to Showcase Student Work

Saco Middle School co-teachers Andrew Fersch and Kaitlyn Leeman hosted an innovative student event recently called, Sebago Speaks. The event featured a series of talks given by students and community members on various issues, each about having a positive impact on the world and their community.

The Sebago Speaks student presenters were selected by their peers and teachers among the entire 7th grade class who all completed a class assignment which challenged them to conduct interviews, research, reading, and writing to create an inspiring presentation on a topic of their choice.

The event featured topics such as, plastic use, income inequality, drug abuse, technology addiction, football, melting ice caps, obesity, animal shelters, recess, music, survival, and kindness, among others.
