Mrs. Williams' 4th-grade class has started the Crayola ColorCycle program at Indian Brook. For the remainder of the school year, they are asking students to bring in any old, dried-up markers from home and place them in the recycling boxes in their classrooms.
Crayola ColorCycle accepts all brands of plastic markers, not just Crayola markers. That includes dry erase markers and highlighters! ColorCycle will eliminate placing hundreds of tons of markers into landfills, and instead, will repurpose the markers, turning them into fuel.

Medical Interventions Field Trip
On February 7th, 43 students from Mrs. Raymond’s Medical Interventions class traveled to Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital in Plymouth for a field trip. BID Plymouth has partnered with the biomedical program since its inception, and for the second year invited the juniors to the hospital to explore careers in healthcare. A mock overdose was reenacted, beginning with EMT’s arriving on the scene to the arrival in the Emergency room and the resuscitation efforts that would occur in an effort to save the victims life. Following the reenactment, each of the healthcare personnel explained a little bit about their role in the resuscitation. Students were then free to ask questions regarding what each of the jobs entail, how long each of the healthcare workers went to school, or questions about on the job training and career outlook for a variety of healthcare positions. The students were introduced to some healthcare positions that they were not previously aware of, including a nurse scientist who explained that she has a PhD in nursing, and her job involves researching best practices for nursing within the hospital.
Following the code and career question and answer session, students were provided lunch and allowed to look at all of the emergency equipment up close. They were free to ask additional questions of the speakers and see firsthand what some of the emergency equipment is that they professionals use in their jobs. Many students stated that it was extremely helpful in deciding careers that they may or may not be interested in pursuing in their future. Some students were especially excited to learn about careers that they had never heard of or thought about before.
