What an honor! Waxpool Elementary School was just recognized as the 2021 PBL Champion School! This international award was announced at today's PBL World conference hosted by PBLWorks.

A big thanks to EVERYONE who helped us achieve this award - the community who supported the unknown just a few short years ago, our students who have embraced the project based learning model, and of course our teachers and staff who work tirelessly to improve and perfect instruction through the lens of PBL. W.E. all earned this award together! πŸ’™πŸ§‘
