Miss Keene's and Mrs. Zampella's 8th grade Study Skills classes teamed up with the Town and Country Garden Club of Water Valley for the National Garden Club's Youth Sculpture Contest. Students were tasked with creating a sculpture out of recyclable or found materials and creating a title for the sculpture. As a way to celebrate the students' hard work and creativity, the sculpture will be on display in the Mechanic's Bank Community Room on December 2 during the Christmas parade. A select number of sculptures will be chosen to advance to the state level and possibly the national level as part of the NGC Youth Sculpture Context. Special thanks to Jaime and Linda Scott for time and contributions to our students throughout this creative journey. Congrats to all of our participating artists on their submissions, and good luck in the upcoming contest!

Pamela Redwine from the Yalobusha MS Extension Office came to the Health Science 2 class today and taught the students what it is like to walk in an elderly person’s shoes. The program is called Gray for a Day and teaches students empathy by helping them experience what it is like to have disorders such as cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration by wearing special glasses, taping fingers and putting on gloves to show decreased sense of touch and arthritis, cotton in ears and nose to experience decreased sense of smell and hearing, walking with neuropathy by putting corn kernels in their shoes, and tying a grandchild’s shoe laces with arthritis and poor vision. Mrs. Redwine is an excellent teacher and we appreciate her coming to share this great program with our students.
