Green Innovation Day Middlebrook students participated in the seventh annual Green Innovation Day on Jan. 28. Green Innovation Day\u00a0is supported by the work of Daniel Pink\u00a0and\u00a0based on Google's 20% Project Time, which\u00a0asks Google employees to spend 20% of their time working on project not covered in their job descriptions. For Green Innovation Day,\u00a0Middlebrook students chose a personal, school-appropriate and safe project \u2014 from baking and artwork to coding and gold course design \u2014 and honed their\u00a0new crafts before sharing\u00a0them with their classmates. Shakespearean fun Two professional actors from the company Shakespeare not only shared their background on Shakespeare with Middlebrook seventh graders, but also performed scenes\u00a0and included student\u00a0volunteers.\u00a0The visit was funded by the\u00a0Middlebrook PTA.
