Blood Draw and IV

Coach Patterson's EAGLE MED students (health science pathway) Therapeutics services class mastered the steps to draw blood in Lab this week. The Lab uses 2 different simulation arms that have skin and veins that mimic an actual human arm. The lab is a fun way to work on patient care skills, PPE ( personal protection equipment) technique and other skills needed in today's healthcare workforce. If you or any students have any questions about our program or would like to join HOSA / EAGLE MED, please contact Coach Pat or email him (Lpatterson@jcsboe.org).

Amy Clingan- Mrs. Clingan’s dedication to KSE students is amazing. She works tirelessly teaching library classes each week to students. She maintains all the copiers used by teachers and staff within our school. She also provides student device tech support for our 1 to 1 initiative in PK-6th grade. She laminates makes posters, and always has a kind word for students and teachers entering the media center. Last week she ran the Book Fair, which again supported KSE students by raising money for new books and media! Thank you, Mrs. Clingan, for doing such a great job serving KSE in so many roles.

VETERANS DAY ASSEMBLY AT KSE

JHS TEACHER RETIREMENT LUNCH

Today was the Jacksonville High School Retired Teachers Luncheon. The Student Ambassadors and the Event Planning Class did an incredible job hosting us. They represented JHS with class and honor. How exciting to see our next generation so educationally prepared, but, also groomed with etiquette. As an alumna of JHS, my heart smiled. Thank you, Russ Waits, Principal, Autumn Wilson, Vice-Principal, and the JHS teachers and staff for your hard work in returning our school back to its leadership position.

If this wasn’t exciting enough, we celebrated our faculty family and our Mr. McKay’s 80 Birthday!
