Stevenson Elementary School celebrated Red Ribbon Week October 26-30.
It was a fun-filled week of learning as there were daily dress-up themes: Monday was “Sock-it-to-Drugs-and-Bullying” Day – The students wore crazy socks! Tuesday brought “Team-Up-Against-Drugs-and-Bullying” Day – The students’ favorite team jerseys/t-shirts/colors became the apparel! Wednesday celebrated “Boot-Out-Drugs-and-Bullying” Day –The students enjoyed some boot-scooting! Thursday, October 29, emphasized “There-Will-Be-No-Drugs-or-Bullying-in-My-Future” Day, and the students were encouraged to wear clothing depicting their future careers!
As a finale on Frida
y, “Drugs-and-Bullying-Will-Not Destroy-Me-or-My-Character” Day – The students were all decked-out in their “farm” costumes as the students celebrated the SES Fall Harvest and Ag Day! Both themes were combined to create a fun-filled day full of educational opportunities for our students. It is always exciting for students to get out of routine and out of the classroom. Sometimes, little do they know, learning can take place just about anywhere, and learning was taking place all over SES! There were 15 learning stations to assist these fun-filled opportunities: Dancing with Mrs. Elaine Blythe in the gym; Storytelling by Mr. Thomas Freese in the library; Art with Ms. Kelsey Sullivan; Beekeeping with Mr. Larry Vaught; Spanish with Mrs. Griselda Vargas; Computers in the lab with Mr. Conrad Reding; our Public Librarians visited with great hands-on ideas; out on the front lawn, Dairy production by Holstein, “Kentucky Kate”, from Kentucky Dairy Development Council, Kentucky Farm Bureau, and Kentucky Department of Agriculture; Dairy consumption (having ice cream as a treat!), by KY Dairy Boosters; and Bro. Brad Rogers brought his baby Jersey calf.
The students enjoyed both climbing on farm equipment parked on the front lawn and seeing the terrific farm animals of chickens, goats, and sheep. Lots of preparation and organizing went into this event with great participation from so many of our community volunteers and leaders.
