WILLISTON, N.D. - Missouri Ridge School has been busy utilizing multiple grants this year geared towards S.T.E.A.M. learning, which involves science, technology, english, and math, but also incorporates the arts.

Media arts has been the big focus with the school partnering with ND Strong and the North Dakota Council of the Arts to produce some different video content. Principal Steven Guglich says over the past several months, Missouri Ridge students have been learning about the various aspects of media with an emphasis on producing student-created content like music videos, PSAs, and a short film.

Thursday night, friends and family gathered at the Grand Theater to check out the students' hard work and to see them in action.

Principal Guglich says they had around 31 students in the cast, double from last year. The showcase featured a meet and greet followed by the showing of student-made music videos, commercials and the new holiday classic, "How Mr. Guglich Stole Christmas."
