  • Kindergarten Students Learn How to Stay Healthy through the Teddy Bear Clinic

    Brasser kindergarten students go through a series of lessons on how to stay healthy such as washing your hands, eating healthy foods, getting plenty of exercise, getting plenty of sleep, and visiting the doctor for regular checkups. They learn about first aid, hospital tools, what's inside us? (body organs), medicines vs. poisons, and the importance of proper dental health.  “The purpose of the Teddy Bear Clinic is to help allay any fears children might have of going to the doctor, dentist, or hospital and to recognize these people as medical helpers in our community,” said Nurse Teacher Brenda Mini. Third grade students serve as medical helpers to Mrs. Mini at the clinic.  They are going through a parallel series of lessons on staying healthy, hospital tools, basic body organs and their functions, helpful and harmful drugs.  The focus in third grade is more on medical careers since they are serving as medical helpers at the clinic.  A new feature this year  of the Teddy Bear Clinic is a research project with our Librarian Mrs. Ratjczak for third graders to choose a medical career, research what they do, the training/ education required, where they work and create a SWAY presentation about that medical career.  Special presenters have visited third grade classrooms providing students with opportunities to hear first-hand what OT/ PT/ EMT/ dental hygienist do.  This year, 25 parent volunteers and five Roberts Wesleyan nursing students plus two EMT's who were outdoors on the ambulance assisted to make the Teddy Bear Clinic a success.

  • Eight-graders Learn about Careers in Demand

    Eighth-grader at Gates Chili Middle School participated in the 3rd Annual Careers in Demand Fair. GCMS technology and FACS teachers worked with the district STEM coach to create an opportunity for students to explore high demand fields in our region. The interdisciplinary team referenced research done by Monroe Community College to invite professionals into the school to present to students, who shared their educational background and unique work experiences. Twenty presenters from Health Care, Information Technology, Advanced Manufacturing, Skilled Trades, Engineering, and Hospitality fields presented. The teachers worked together to create an informative lesson plan to introduce each career field, then each student completed a survey and to attend three sessions corresponding to their interests. You can read more about the career fields at the following MCC link: http://mcclmi.com/workforce-clusters/
