This I Believe

"This I Believe," is Tower's capstone project for all 8th grade students, through which they combine reflection, academic skills, personal voice and public speaking skills to share the core values that guide their daily lives. Students write and refine their essay, then practice aloud before sharing with fellow middle school students at assembly.
