Alex Wilde Visits LK Moss to Share SCAD Experiences
Alex Wilde, a recent Marion County High School graduate (Class of 2010), visited the fourth and fifth grade PAL (Program for Accelerated Learners) class at LK Moss Elementary. Alex talked to them about Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) and the various opportunities for study. He also shared his experiences while working on his degree in Industrial Design. The students were completely enthralled at his description of the classes and the campus. They are looking forward to visiting with Alex at Family Night on April 13 and viewing some of his designs.
Time to Nutricise!
Mrs. Brenda Trammel of the Marion County Cooperative Extension Service recently visited the second and third grade PAL (Program for Accelerated Learners) students at LK Moss Elementary. Mrs. Trammel provided a nutrition lesson on food choices. Then, she talked to them about the importance of exercise. Next, it was time to get on their feet and Nutricise! Everyone got in a good workout as she led them in an exercise routine designed to get their hearts pumping and muscles stronger. Mrs. Trammel left the students with pedometers, which they have enjoyed wearing to track their steps.
Poets Visit Students to Share Poetry, Encourage Them to Write
Recently, two members of the Georgia Poetry Society, Ron Self and Hilde Hawk, visited the fourth and fifth grade PAL (Program for Accelerated Learners) students at LK Moss Elementary School. Ron and Hilde shared various poems with the students, then assigned them to quickly write several types of poems. Students had a great time writing the drafts of the poems (which they will revise and publish later) and sharing them with the class and the visiting poets. The class learned about using their senses to write poems and to avoid always trying to make the poems rhyme. They also learned how poetry can provide an outlet for expressing and dealing with emotional times, such as Mrs. Hawk sharing her poem that reflects on wartime during World War II in Germany.
