Vista High Students Share Wellness Lessons at Bobier Elementary
March 10th, 2017
Students from Jody Ordoñez’s senior English class at Vista High School worked on a wide-ranging research project on a topic of their choice related to wellness. As the finished, they realized that they wanted to share their research, and felt strongly about connecting with elementary school aged children. Said Ordoñez, “Our students are very passionate about educating younger children regarding health-related issues that they have researched.”
And so on Tuesday, March 7th, the seniors walked across the street to Bobier Elementary and put together an engaging health and wellness fair for the Bobier students to enjoy.
Elementary classrooms came to the Multi-Purpose Room to view the Vista High School students’ research, displayed on colorful posters, and talk to the high schoolers about their projects. Topics included using electronics, over eating, anti-bullying, playing sports, healthy eating, dental hygiene, and more.
The high school seniors were incredible role models and provided excellent information and inspiration for the elementary students. The elementary students asked great questions and were very respectful of the high schools projects. It was an amazing collaboration resulting in real-world benefits. It showcases the ways that the VHS Personalized Learning Program and Bobier’s emphasis on wellness can collaborate and engage students in a real world environment.
