Bettendorf Middle School eighth-grade students will attend a daylong workshop on Tuesday, Sept. 3, to learn about changing lives and our world through Choose2Matter.

Angela Maiers, consultant, speaker and former elementary teacher, and Mark Moran will work with Bettendorf Middle School students and staff on the concept behind Choose2Matter — when someone thinks that they matter, they see the world in a different light and behave differently. When people realize they matter, they approach life and work in a manner that understands that their actions can have a positive impact on the world.

Students and staff will begin work on their call to action on Tuesday. Through December, they will develop an action plan, work with experts/professionals, review plans and implement their plans. Students will host an exhibition of their project and work on Thursday, Dec. 12.
