New Orleans Pelicans’ Junior Training Camp Held at Sixth Ward Elementary School

 

On Tuesday, January 9, 2018, the New Orleans Pelicans hosted their Jr. Training Camp at Sixth Ward Elementary School. Staff and students in grades 3rd-6th enjoyed a special visit from Pierre, the mascot. During the camp, students learned the importance of healthy living, teamwork and cooperation. Students worked on their passing and dribbling skills while also learning a few random facts about themselves. A poster was on display featuring the 7'7'' wingspan of NBA player Anthony Davis.
The main goal of the traveling program is to inspire children to stay active and keep healthy. The camp travels throughout the year and across the region. 
The camp is presented by Ochsner Health System, Smoothie King, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana, and the Louisiana Campaign for Tobacco-Free Living.
Students received a NO Pelicans Jr. Training Camp t-shirt that was worn during the training camp and a voucher to redeem two lower level tickets for a Pelicans' home game.
This event was organized by Ms Melissa Aubert, Behavior Strategist.

   Mr. Lee Granier, mathematics teacher at the SMA and STEM Lead Teacher for St. James Parish Schools, integrated a 3rd grade STEM Challenge this past week with Mrs. Danielle Leblanc’s 3rd grade students at Sixth Ward Elementary. Mrs. LeBlanc’s 3rd grade students were given the opportunity to apply their knowledge and understandings of Louisiana’s 3rd Grade Science Standard: Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions (3-PS2-1), as well as, using the Engineering Design Process, to build a Balloon Powered Car that will travel 5 or more feet.  This student driven in-class STEM enhance lesson is an amazing way to have students engaged in the learning process and a chance to incorporate math and their science concepts with creativity, innovation and critical thinking. This is one of many projects Mr. Granier plans to integrate into Science lessons across St. James Parish Schools.
