Phoenix Fair

Franny v           LV  PhxFair

Phoenix Fair is a unique crafts bazaar, which combines one-of-a-kind handcrafted items with student entrepreneurship. Students develop a business plan and market their handmade products to sell at the event, along with the items sold by outside vendors. This is a great opportunity for the Worthington community to support both local businesses and educational enrichment.

Phoenix Middle School, 2341 Snouffer Road

2020 Phoenix Craft Fair dates to be announced soon!


Proceeds benefit student activities and help subsidize student travel opportunities.

In alignment with the Phoenix Middle School philosophy, the Phoenix Fair bazaar is designed to give students the opportunity to experience entrepreneurism by developing an idea for a product or one- time service, making a business plan, procuring materials, designing a booth display and marketing and selling a product. Phoenix Middle School facilitates opportunities for students to discover a deeper understanding of self and their relationship to the world in which they live through real-life experiences. Phoenix values self-direction, having choices, the relevance of curriculum, students being responsible for their own learning, and the evaluation of their own progress. Students participating in the Phoenix Fair are not charged a table fee and must commit to donating 10% of their proceeds to the Phoenix PTSA.





Europe Trip Information Meetings

Europe Banner
We will try to keep the meetings short; 1 hour or less. It is important that travelers attend as often as possible, as we will not only be talking about trip details, but getting to know each other as well. Click on the links below to view:


Sunday, 25 January 6-7pm | Phoenix Middle School
Meeting Cancelled Due to Inclement Weather: After looking at the weather forecast and texting the other chaperones, we have decided to cancel today's meeting at 6pm. We will tentatively reschedule the meeting for two weeks from today, Feb 8, 2015, from 6-7pm.
We are planning to meet at Phoenix MIddle School (7th grade pod) from 6-7pm this Sunday night, January 25. We will be digging into the itinerary in a bit more detail, gathering more passports (bring yours if you haven't yet), and answering questions you may have at this point. Exciting times! Right now, the weather looks a little dicey. We can't tell if we will have slippery roads or not by our meeting time. I will send an email and post on the Phoenix website between 5:30pm-5:45pm if we are NOT meeting due to weather. If you do not hear from me, assume the meeting is on. I appreciate your patience, as obviously the weather situation is anyone's guess at the moment. (I am actually singing in a concert in Westerville at 4pm, so I will know by 5:30 what the roads are like.) Again...I will email and post only if we are cancelling the meeting. Thanks,

Upcoming Meetings -

Discovery Days

During the school year, there are designated days when students can participate in a self-designed exploratory experience. Students could choose to carry out a service-learning project, shadow an adult working in a career that interests them, create/complete an extension project in a particular content area, or perhaps go on a curriculum-related field trip...the possibilities are limited only by the students' creativity. The Phoenix staff believes Discovery Days are an important way to include student voice in our school's curriculum.

** Click Here to download Discovery Day Ideas **

** Click Here to download a Discovery Day Plan Form **

Our first Discovery Day is an opportunity for all students to experience the process of designing and planning with teachers and parents. Every Phoenix student is required to participate in the first Discovery Day.

For the remainder of the year, students who have mastered all classes will participate in the "Discovery Days" program at Phoenix. Students who are not at mastery in all classes by the Mastery work deadline listed above will use the Discovery Day to stay at school and consult with teachers on missing work, as well as assignments that need to be revised and resubmitted.

"Mastery work deadline" is the last day that a student can turn in revisions to be considered for Discovery Day eligibility. Students and parents can keep track of progress toward Discovery Day eligibility on Phoenix MAP, our online assessment program.

2020/21 Discovery Days are scheduled for:

  • Monday, November 23 | Tuesday, November 24
  • Wednesday, January 13 | Thursday, January 14 | Friday, January 15
  • Wednesday, March 10 | Thursday, March 11

How can families help their Phoenix student(s) with Discovery Days?

No one knows middle school students better than the adults that live with them. Adult family members can support their Phoenix student by:

  • Marking Discovery Days together on the family calendar;

  • Informally discussing ideas and dreams with the students about what those days could involve;

  • Looking over brainstorming / pre-planning paperwork that the student work on at school and bring home to complete.

  • Taking time to carefully read the student's plan before signing off on it. A parent's signature on the plan tells the advisory teacher that families have read the plan, have full knowledge of all it entails, and are willing to support their Phoenix student in carrying it out. Furthermore, a parent signature indicates that families believe the plan to be meaningful and worthwhile for the student (not just something to "fill time" before going to the mall.) **Teachers take their cues from parents...we will not sign off on a plan that families do not approve for their child.**


Accountability for Discovery Days:

At the end of each Discovery Day(s), all students (whether they went on a Discovery Day experience OR worked on mastery at school) will complete a written reflection assignment at home to bring in to share with his or her advisory group the following week. The reflection assignment will be given at school as homework, and will present the following questions:

1. What did you do during your Discovery Day? Give specific details.

2. What was exciting, frustrating, challenging, rewarding, etc. about your experience? Explain.

3. What did you learn from this experience? Explain.

4. What did you discover about yourself? Explain.

5. Would you recommend this experience to other students? Why or why not?

If appropriate to the Discovery Day experience, students are encouraged to bring in an artifact to share; for example, if something was constructed, baked, composed, written, sewn, etc., it would make sense that the student share the finished work with teachers and peers as part of the advisory group discussion. When deciding whether to bring an artifact, students should ask themselves, "Would this make it easier for me to talk about my experience? How can I engage my audience when I talk about what I did for Discovery Day?"

In the Middle!

Would you choose to build a house on top of an unfinished foundation? Of course not. Why, then, do we rush students through education when they haven't always grasped the basics? Yes, it's complicated...
