Family Care Council Presents at MSE

Melody Hearn of the Family Care Council presented information to our Morningside Elementary students on Wednesday, October 26, 2016.  She discussed the challenges and daily struggles of children and adults with Down Syndrome.  To help educate the students, Melody had some hands-on demonstrations to show them how difficult it is to talk, play, write, and do everyday tasks.  The students benefited from the engaging presentation and had a much better understanding of disabilities by the end of the program!

Dr. Vigianno Visits MSE and Brings Body Systems to “Life”!

  Fifth grade students at Morningside Elementary learned all about body systems with hands-on activities including viewing how air expands real pig lungs, touching and seeing real animal organs, and learning where all the inner body systems are located.  Finally, the students were shown how by tapping on the body, they could tell whether the body part was solid or hollow.  The head sounded hollow much to the students’ surprise!
