Parent Presenter in 7th Grade Science Class

It was an exciting day today in 7th grade science! We had a parent, Phil Pugh, father of Brody Pugh, present to us his career today.  Mr. Pugh is an ER nurse at OSU East and is also a clinical teacher for new nurses in
Newark.  The sudents were very intersted in what Mr. Pugh had to say regarding his career.  Students also got the opportunity to practice the skills he taught them today in CPR.  I am so thankful to have parent
vounteers come in to share their career experiences with our students.  A BIG THANK YOU goes out to Phil Pugh for giving up his day off to come speak to my classes!!

7th Grade Immunization Requirements
Attention Parents/Guardians,

The Ohio Department of Health requires ALL students entering 7th grade to have an additional dose of Tdap or Td booster shot AND one dose of Meningococcal vaccine. This requirement MUST be met prior to the first day of school in August. Please contact your family physician or local health department at 740-689-6758 to make an appointment.  We REQUIRE written documentation by your child’s physician PRIOR to the start of seventh grade. 

Any student who does not have record of this immunization by September 9, 2016 will NOT be permitted to attend school until this is completed.
Thank you for your attention to this matter, any questions please call Mrs.Haughn or Nurse Emily.

We enjoyed our first parent presenter in 7th grade science class today!  Joy Sharp, mom of Kaylee Sharp, is the extention agent through the Pickaway County extention office.  She presented how her job relates to science.  Mrs. Sharp demonstrated how germs can be passed from one person to the other using a "secret" hand lotion she had Mrs. Evans use and shake random sutdents' hands as they came to class.  She further demonstrated germ growth using beans.  Students were disgusted to learn that in 512 bacteria germs have multiplied after just 2 hrs and 12 hours.  Students got to participate in a hands on game that "quizzed" them on the facts she presented.  A BIG thanks  to Joy Sharp for sharing her knowledge and being "edutaining" to our students today!!

Parent Presenter - Bees
Another awesome day in 7th grade science!  We had beekeepers Ken and Lori Edmonds and Carolyn "Queen" Snokes share with us their knowledge of honey bees and bee keeping.  They showed the students the anatomy of the honey bee as well as the different parts of a man made hive.  Students even got to view a live working hive in class today.  The students were very interested and had lots of questions!  They even got to enjoy a honey stick at the end of the presentation!
Parent Presenter - Detectives
The 7th grade science class had the pleasure of having Kelly Stats (Abby Stat's mom) and Jason Meadows, present to them in class.  Detective Stats and Meadows both work for the Fairfiled County Sherrif's Office.  They presented to the students a little bit about what their job entailed then allowed them to take fingerprints and "collect DNA."  The kids had a great time working with the equipments they had to share.  I am so very thankful for our parent volunteers!
