Zemmer students learn about survival skills

Sixth grade Teen Survival Skills I students at Zemmer Middle School had a week-long adventure in healthy minds and healthy bodies recently as three guest speakers (Mr. Mark Fulcher, Mrs. Marcie Clem, and Mrs. Elaine Schneider) did hands-on activities with the students.

Students participated in basic self defense techniques, relaxation techniques, stress relieving activities, stretching, mind visualizing, and yoga.

“Part of the Teen Survival Skills class is to help sixth graders to be more relaxed in school so they may find more success in all their endeavors, so we felt that bringing in resources from the community was altogether appropriate,” said Patrick Lothrop, a teacher at Zemmer.
