PowToon Animations -Grades 10 & 11

Students planned and created an original PowToon from scratch. The goal was to utilize sound in an intelligent way.
Their options were: A.) Make a “How To” Video With Voice-over. *Teach us how to do something or educate us on something.  B.) Make a Music Video for Original Music or a Soundscape YOU Created C.) Take Your Recent Soundscape Project and Add the Visuals.

Mary -Grade 11

“For this project, I wanted to create a mixed-media type of video so I used two mobile apps, royalty free audio and visuals, my own photographs and audio, and hand-drawn sketches. I used Pics Art and Line Camera to sketch the visuals while the audio was recorded raw in a bathroom. Then, I used Wondershare Filmora to add the lyrics and sync the visuals with the audio. I hope it made you feel something (this is 9 hours of patience). :’)”


Hailey -Grade 11

This is an animation about myself. I used video show, PowToon, and some royalty free music found in PowToon. I sketched each of the pictures and recorded my own voice too!”

The New Kid

By: Moe Khant

What up, so my name is Moe Khant but my friends call me Blake. I am a 9th grader and I used to attend to ISM. And I love to play Basketball.

People ask me why I like to play Basketball and I say it’s because it makes me feel free and it also helps me out with stress. And that’s why I love Basketball.

My hobbies are to play sports and games. I like to play Pub-G and Fortnite, because both of those share a same concept which is “Battel Royale.” Battel Royale is a type of game mode, like 50 Vs. 50 which I love to play. In both Pub-G and Fortnite there are a variety of guns and bombs which I can pick and survive to get my rank better. So yeah, this is all about me. If you’ve got questions or want to talk, you can always find me on the basketball court.😊 Peacee✌

Yong -Grade 9

This is a short antiphonal poem that Angeline, Daniel , Shin Thant and I made. Enjoy it !


Myat -Grade 9

“I’ve always been fond of shooting visuals and aesthetics, then later editing them. Adding them together with a soothing audio makes it even more pleasing for me. I thought out these clips for a long time, and I tried my best in making everything connect smoothly. I used Final Cut Pro (the usual) to make this, and the piano music is a snippet from Clair De Lune by Claude Debussy.”

Just Wanted to Say Hey

Hey. My name is Cherry and I’m 14 which may come as a surprise to some people because I look like an 11 year-old. I was born on the 23rd of September on 2004 and I don’t know… my favorite color is purple?

I also love to draw and I’ll never go anywhere without my sketchbook. It’s basically my child. I’m a giant foodie meaning I’ll eat anything and everything except for anything that has more that 4 legs. I’m a huge fan of that TV show called f.r.i.e.n.d.s and I think I’ve watched every episode at least 5 times. It’s honestly becoming a problem. I’m also horrible at math so if you ask me anything math related you’ll probably have to wait a couple days for me to come up with an answer. Oh and I’m terribly lazy, but I mean, who isn’t?

I love love loveeee dogs more than I love humans… but not cats. They scare me, especially hairless cats. I honestly believe that the root of all my fears started from the hairless cat. However kittens are adorableeee, but not a hairless kitten. I swear hairless kittens are scarier than hairless cats.

Anyways, I guess that’s all I have to say. Thanks for reading and I hope I entertained you for a couple of minutes. Have fun with whatever you’re up to and bye.

Soundscape Projects -Grade 9

Students were given the inspiration and freedom to create a project that utilizes only sound. They worked with or created original music, sound effects, voice-overs, and manufactured sounds. Soundscapes can be a narrative story that only uses sound, it can be abstract, it can be experimental, or it can be musical, or it can be a combination of all of these.


Andrew -Grade 9
