A skill we learned while taking part in students in action is how important it is to stay engaged. We did many projects throughout the year as a ninth grade where if we were not engaged we would not make the progress needed. For example, during the can drive if we were not focused we would not have gotten the amount of cans needed to help the people who rely on the Concord food pantry. Overall if we were not engaged we would not have gotten a lot of the work done because we would have been fooling around. Instead, we stayed focused as a grade and got a lot of projects done.
