Our students were able to email the panel questions about what it is like to work at NASA in roles other than astronaut, and about the upcoming movie "Hidden Figures" that focuses on the people behind-the-scenes who have made our space program so great. NASA Administrator Bolden answered Madison 6th Grader, Rebekah Garrow's question about how many people are involved in building a rocket today. Mr. Bolden told Rebekah that there are over 17,000 civil servant employees working for NASA today, and thousands of people in a wide variety of roles including mathematicians, engineers of all kinds, welders, electricians, and physicists are involved in a project like that.
The panel members had a very important message for all the students participating in the webcast; they all emphasized how important it is to be the best you can be and do the best you can in school, to stay focused, to work hard, to push oneself, and that anyone, including all of the students participating in the webcast, could enjoy rewarding careers in many different fields working for NASA.
Over the last several months, the Wellness Committee has worked diligently with the St. Lawrence County Health Initiative, to complete a grant application and purchase equipment and games to help promote healthy choices. †
Massena Central School District was awarded $2,500 per school for a total of $12,500 for the District for the 2015-2016 school year. The funds this year have been allocated to new PE equipment to be used in classes and by the community. Many of these items help introduce our students to fun games and activities that donít necessarily require them to be an athlete, but do require students to get up and move. †
Thank you to the St. Lawrence County Health Initiative, Creating Healthy Schools and Communities Project, and funding from the New York State Department of Health for making this possible.
