Students at Maplewood Richmond Heights Middle School made political cartoons, songs and videos to demonstrate their knowledge of government.
The eighth grade students at Maplewood Richmond Heights Middle School are writing songs and making videos about government that makes School House Rock look like Sesame Street. As part of social studies teacher Alex Pepin's Active Citizen project, each student demonstrated their knowledge of government through artistic expression, including songs, videos, cartoons, news articles and commercials. "It's taking the 'boring' stuff and making it a little more engaging and fun and having them put their own thoughts and ideas and their own life behind it," Pepin said. "They all chose projects that mean something to them." (Want more MRH news? Find us on Facebook to stay in the know: www.facebook.com/MaplewoodBrentwoodPatch and www.facebook.com/…

Students from Maplewood Richmond Heights High School and MRH Middle School gathered Thursday in Overland to develop large-scale volunteer projects with dozens of other St. Louis-metro-area students.

Dr. Robert Dillon, principal of Maplewood Richmond Heights Middle School, will make the trip later this month along with teachers, students and a gardener.

"There's a need to continue to stoke the fire of ideas," Dillon said. He said that MRH is a local leader in sustainability but that the district always aims to progress further. Dillon …
