The 2015-16 sixth grade gifted Journey classes at Pass Christian Middle School (PCMS) donated the proceeds from their class project "Market Day" to Principal Joe Nelson to be placed in the PCMS Renaissance fund, which is used to honor academic and character excellence.    The Journey students participated in Market Day during May of 2016. The students were divided into teams and given the challenge to create their own business to promote an original product that they designed.  The teams were then placed into the "Shark Tank" which was made up of a panel of PCMS administrators, teachers, and former Journey students.  The teams presented their products using an infomercial that they created and explained why their product would be marketable to the students at Pass Christian Elementary School (PCES).  Special thanks to Journey teachers, Mrs. Jane Bunn and Mrs. Lori Fisher, and the 2015-2016 PCMS Journey students - pictured.  Mrs. Fisher stated, "Our Journey students were happy to donate a $731 cashier's check to the Pass Middle School Renaissance Fund.  We hope this helps to continue rewarding our students as they excel academically."
