METRO AVIATION DAY
What a great opportunity for Plain Dealing Students!! Twenty-three 9th graders toured Metro Aviation, a Shreveport-based company that custom builds medical and police helicopters for business and governments around the world. The students got to see these million dollar helicopters being created from the metal shells to the sophisticated thermal imaging detection ability needed by law enforcement to fast-flying medical emergency rooms. In the tour everything was covered including fabrication of parts, wiring, painting, and even pilot training in virtual reality simulators. It was amazing to learn that this was a world where there are endless possibilities for men or women who want to learn and discover new things in the world of work.
After touring Metro Aviation, the students attended a business luncheon where they met with other students from high schools around northwest Louisiana and business mentors from the Shreveport Rotary Club. Shreveport Mayor, Ollie Tyler, spoke along with several other successful business owners. Shacoria Hogan helped Teri Haynes, owner of Business Interactions, demonstrate the correct way to shake hands and introduce yourself when meeting in business. Brian Crawford, Chief Administrative Officer of the City of Shreveport, led roundtable discussions on wants-vs-needs and making ethical choices when working for a company. Jennifer Langston impressed the audience when she stated the she had already developed her goals for her future, pharmacy tech school followed by pharmacist school at ULM. After students and mentors broke into small groups and went through the “Interview Challenge”.
This was an opportunity for Plain Dealing students that left them with much to think about and new skills to practice. Thank you to Junior Achievement and Shreveport Rotary Club for sponsoring this event and inviting Plain Dealing to participate in it.
Christmas Tree Program
Sixth and seventh grade students upcycled to help decorate Christmas trees that were placed in the Bossier City Convention Center for BPCC’s Christmas program performed on November 30-December 1. What is unique about this project is that students upcycled to get decorations for the trees. They created ornaments from old Christmas cards, Mardi Gras beads, pine cones, bottle tops, and old music sheets. Even the paint and glue and string was left over from previous projects. The students worked over a three day period to create the tree ornaments and then decorated the tree.
The members of the middle school talented art group are: Riley Rousseau, Carley Rodgers, Braedon Sterling, Artavious Washington-Carper, Gianni Black, Shelbie Allan, and Teddrick Lampkin.
Thank you to all of the talented art students for giving their time and effort.
