Magician Performs for SES K-2 Students

Smackover Elementary School kindergarten through 2nd graders watched a magician perform on Wednesday, October 15, as a preview to Red Ribbon Week.  The magician, Mr. Miller, taught the importance of the following four words:

  • No – Just say NO if someone offers you drugs, alcohol, or tobacco.
  • Go – If someone keeps trying to get you to use drugs, alcohol, or tobacco, then GO away!
  • Tell – TELL someone if they have offered you drugs, alcohol, or tobacco.
  • Yell – If you can’t get away when someone is trying to get you to use drugs, alcohol, or tobacco, then YELL!

Digital Learning at SES

Over the summer, Chrome books and carts were purchased for every 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade classroom at Smackover Elementary School.  Teachers at the school received training over the summer so that they would be able to help the students successfully utilize the technology in their classrooms.
