I had the honor of planning Science Day at my daughter’s school last week. Science day is a unique opportunity where the kids spend the entire day learning about Science. We brought in 27 presenters and set them up in classrooms. Then each grade rotated among their classroom’s to learn about various topics. Our Principal even gave three assemblies with an outer space theme.
Coordinating this awesome day was not only fun for the kids but a blast for me. My English major and career in Financial Services does not exactly qualify me as a Scientific Expert. I really enjoyed talking with all the presenters and learning more about their organizations. It is amazing how many fantastic organizations we have in the Northwest.
I was also amazed at the dedication of the parents and staff to make Science Day happen. I had a lot of parents come down and help out in the classroom. Several of our presenters were also parents or community members that presented. Without community involvement we wouldn’t have Grossology, Weird Science, Strawberry DNA and our Squid Dissection. Yes, I said squid Dissection. The third graders write their names from the squid’s ink. It is a popular presentation and referred to as a rite of passage for our 3rd graders.
In case you are wondering yes I am already planning next year’s Science Day! I’m curious what school events you are or have been involved in?
Hello! I’m Le Ann Langston and I’m the Director of Member Services Northgate for Verity Credit Union. Member Service Manager is another name for the call center manager. Talking on the phone was a hobby of mine as a teenager and now I have made a career of it. If only I had a cool headset when I was 13! In my spare time I enjoy yoga, writing and reading just about anything. I am slightly addicted to TV and am currently hooked on a number of shows. Given this list of indoor pursuits you may find it hard to believe that I enjoy traveling to new places. Most people would never know that at one point I almost moved to London just for a change of pace.
