NAES Students Enjoy Relay for Life Field Day

New Albany Elementary students enjoyed a day of fun and education while raising money for the American Cancer Society at the Relay for Life Field Day on May 15, 2017.  This year the students and staff raised approximately $3,000.00.

School Resource Officer P.J. Doyle discusses safety tips including stranger danger and using the buddy system.

“Field Day was a great time for us to bring together many of the components of Coordinated School Health that we work with throughout the school year,” said Tammie Reeder, School Health Coordinator.  “Health education, physical education, and family and community involvement are three very important components of Coordinated School Health that we were able to address during our annual Relay for Life Field Day.”

Students participated in several educational activities and fun events during the day-long field day. Children learned health and safety information, played fun games, enjoyed snacks, and were entertained by fellow students during the annual talent show.

Representatives from local and state organizations were on hand to teach important concepts related to health and safety.  Baptist Memorial Hospital-Union County provided education related to summer safety.  The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers provided information regarding water safety.  School Resource Officer P.J. Doyle spoke to students about basic safety tips include “stranger danger”.  Health Rotation Assistant Teacher Carolyn Montgomery provided an education station and discussed the harmful effects of tobacco.

This year, the Mississippi Department of Rehabilitation had representatives to present the “Brain Matters” program which focused on wearing helmets.  Each student received a free bike helmet through this presentation.

The closing program for the day honored cancer survivors who were special guests of NAES students.  The ceremony was dedicated to the memory of C.J. Garner, a student at NAES who lost his battle to cancer in August 2016.  His family were special guests during the ceremony and his second grade classmates sang a song in his memory.

“We appreciate all of the help we received from area agencies, our own NAES staff, as well as students and parents,” Reeder said.  “This day is a lot of fun and educational awareness that our students look forward to each year.”

Students learn about water safety and the importance of learning to swim.

Career & Technical Education Focuses on ‘Soft Skills’

 

Soft skills have been the focus of study for students enrolled in classes at the New Albany High School of Career and Technical Education.  For the past two weeks, instructors have been team teaching students those skills that will help make them more employable.

The soft skills study began on April 25 with introductory lessons and concluded on May 4.  During the unit, students were introduced to soft skills, learned about job objectives and conflict resolution, as well as preparing a resume and job application.

A major focus was the job interview component.  Students learned how to prepare for an interview and were able to participate in a mock interview.  Second year vocational students were selected and trained to serve as the interviewers during the project.

Alison Moore, Business and Marketing Instructor at the Career and Technical Center, coordinated the study on soft skills.  She explained that career and technical instructors believe in educating the whole student and giving them as many opportunities to succeed as possible.

“This activity is one more way we can make sure our students are better prepared for the future,” Moore stated.  “It was a fun real-life learning activity and I heard so many positive comments from both the interviewers and the interviewees that day.”    Moore believes this will become an annual event.

“Through this process, we have given our students an opportunity to learn more skill sets while better equipping them for the job force,” said Kimberly Langley, an instructor at the Career and Technical Center.  “They now better know how to apply for a job and what to expect during an interview.”

Sarah Duley, a student at the Career and Technical Center added, “It was a great opportunity for us to learn tips for completing a job application and the proper skills for how to best present yourself in an interview.”
