Litter and its Harmful Effects

The Poplarville Upper Elementary Conservation Club’s November meeting consisted of the students learning about the impact that litter has on our Earth.  Ms. Sharon Sanders, the club sponsor, talked with them about everyday litter problems.  The members were then divided into groups and given a littering scenario in which they would discuss the hazard to determine possible solutions and consequences.  They drew pictures and/or wrote about their scenario and then presented their information to the other members of the group.

PUE Students BREAKOUT!

Students had to band together and Breakout! The students were given a 45 minute window to solve multiple math problems that would lead to clues to open the locks on the Breakout box. Students worked together and learned the role of leadership and learned to work as a team. All students worked diligently and together to solve each and every problem. The students did not make the 45 minute time limit but they were able to break out 5 minutes after the timer went off. I would call this a success!

The Quest Classes at PUE hosted a school-wide Presidential Mock Election on Thursday, October 27th. The Promote the Vote campaign is sponsored by the MS Secretary of State’s office and allows students from school districts all across MS to participate.  Prior to voting, the PUE students were shown a bulletin board display with Thinking Maps which compared and contrasted the two candidates and presented information about past elections and presidents. Donald Trump received 80 percent of the vote. In the statewide election, more than 28,300 Mississippi students voted. Donald Trump received 49.2 percent of the vote while Hillary Clinton received 42 percent. Our PUE students proudly displayed their “I Voted” stickers after casting their votes.  Be sure to exercise your right to do the same on Tuesday, November 8th.
