We welcomed doctors of one of our students. The mom is a general practitioner and the dad is a specialist with the liver. They brought lots of models of the organs and equipment that doctors use to show the children. As the children left their informative session they gave each of the students a syringe (without a needle, of course!), a mask and a pair of gloves. Looks like we will have lots of doctors in our midst - they liked pretending to give shots the best!
Next we were visited by former Jacksonville Jaguar player David Garrard. He played quarterback for twelve years in the National Football League. He and his wife explained the important part that diet and fitness play in keeping us healthy. They talked about a healthy diet and showed the children some games and exercises that they might enjoy this summer.
Finally students heard from Dr. Roberts, a trauma surgeon, and a Life Flight nurse who stressed always wearing a seat belt and wearing a helmet when they ride a bike or skateboard, so they never have to see them! What a remarkable way to meet our Science standards!
