  • Green Team saving earth one classroom at a time

    As the halls clear out in the afternoon at Emma B. Ward Elementary School, the Green Team springs into action.

    From deep within Recycling Headquarters, the Green Team mans its recycling bins — most too short to see over the tilted containers. The Green Team prepares to roll out the cans — its favorite task of all.

    Veteran Green Team member Clayton Riddle, a fifth-grader, is quick to point out why the school needs these pint-sized recycling superheroes.

    When the doors to the playground spring open at 3:15 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, students, ranging in age from first through fifth grade, burst from the school and settle into a steady pace as they race around the sidewalks circling the play area.

    From lanky, knobby-kneed 10-year-olds to chubby cheeked second graders, the children run or walk for the next 45 minutes. But, as children tend to do, the exercise they are getting is disguised by the fun they are having.

  • Career Day gets students thinking about future

    Eighteen different careers were paraded in front of students at Emma B. Ward Elementary School last week in hopes of getting the children to start thinking about their future.

    Some of the people, like Sherry Noon, youth and family services manager at the Anderson Public Library, were familiar faces to the students.

    Others, like chiropractor Dr. Arthur Pangemanan showing off his model of a spinal column and trapper Anthony Wilcox passing around pelts of the animals he’s caught, weren’t as familiar.
