Monona Grove Liberal Arts Charter School student Ashton Botts loves a good holiday. He wanted to know if others felt the same way. Ashton interviewed his classmates and teacher, Paul Marx, about their favorite holidays and traditions, how much candy they get on Halloween, and whether Black Friday is a holiday.
During the 2018-2019 school year, Monona Grove Liberal Arts Charter School, or MG21, high school students created radio pieces for Wisconsin Public Radio’s “Wisconsin Life.” The final stories were featured on the radio and online through the “Classroom Frequency: Student Voices From Wisconsin” project.
