"Keep Your Heart Happy"
On Thursday, one of our 5th grade classrooms hosted a Career Day! Sharing their career stories with our students were Dr. and Mrs. Dibs. Mrs. Dibs is a Heart Nurse and she explained the nursing profession and how nurses care for patients. Mrs. Dibs also explained the importance of science education and how a nurse is required to continue education throughout their careers. Nurses truly make a difference!
Dr. Dibs is a Cardiologist Heart Doctor. He showed a model of a heart and explained how the heart functions. He shared a video which our students really enjoyed. Dr. Dibs explained how to keep your heart healthy. The students were very interested and it was apparent based on all the great questions they asked!
Thank you Dr. and Mrs. Dibs for sharing your career stories with our students.

What is a word worth? Ask some of our 4th and 5th grade students. They created displays to "sell" their selected words. Parents, staff, and students throughout Rutledge Hall, and even a few from Todd, came shopping.
