This will count for 45% of your grade.  (Project Breakdown = Presentation 45%, Reflection essay 45%, Mr. Parkin's observations 10% = Grand total equals 100% for a Project Grade). The Reflection essay AND Presentations that illustrate EVIDENCE of your contributions as an ambassador and the school observing Peace Day should be documented and will be due on Monday, September 23rd.
