MSP Quest - Medical Mystery Study

Mrs. Holly Johnson’s 6th grade Quest classes took part in a problem based learning experience that focused on a real life medical mystery scenario.
 
Students were given daily reports of symptoms and stories of different individuals whose health began to decline rapidly. Each student worked hard and raced against the clock to diagnose the patients correctly and also had to decide what medical care needed to be taken.
 
At the end of the study, the students transformed the classro
om into a hospital and presented their reports to Dr. Angela Jones, Christina Meador, CNP, Jessica Carr, RN, and the MSP health classes.
 
 
Our medical judges agreed that the students had diagnosed the patients correctly, and gave them wonderful feedback. We want to thank our judges and audience who came and helped make this study so meaningful.

2017 MSP Quest “Young Author’s Celebration

Mrs. Holly Johnson’s 6th grade Quest classes enjoyed the day being able to meet and visit with authors and illustrators from around the area. This event entitled, “Young Author’s Celebration” was put on by William Carey University, and each student experienced how to be their “Life’s Own Author.”
 
Prior to the trip, the Quest students spent several weeks writing their own stories that were special to them. We went through the whole writing process and published each student’s book. This was a wonderful experience and gave each student the confidence they needed to realize they can use their personal experiences to connect with others through stories.
 
We had a great time and look forward to sharing our stories with students at Poplarville Lower Elementary for Read Across America Week.

MSP Health Class Gets Fit

The MSP Health class had the opportunity to learn new, healthy information from PRCC instructors/coaches.  Ryne Colvin, Assistant Boys Basketball Coach and First Aid/Cpr Instructor, gave important information to the classes about CPR.  He taught the correct steps of CPR and how to save a life properly while using CPR and an AED.  
   
Meghan Moger, Wellness Instructor and Cheer Coach, taught the the class how to maintain a healthy lifestyle while incorporating healthy eating and exercise.  She gave the students ideas on how to stretch properly,  how to cut back on unhealthy foods, and brought displays to show the comparison between unhealthy pounds of fat compared to strong amounts of muscle that our bodies need.
 
MSP students really enjoyed their presentation and learned lots of new information that they can use on a daily basis to maintain a healthy lifestyle.  We appreciate the instructors at PRCC for taking time out of their schedule to come and teach to our younger generation.
