Gloria Hicks Elementary 2019-2020

Just wanted to put a smile on everyone’s face and go back to when we were allowed to go to schools to educate and see our kiddos before Covid19. A big Thank you to the coaches and staff at Gloria Hicks  Elementary!  I had a great time with your kiddos.   Today we had 325   students in attendance.   Your students were amazing and very respectful.  We introduced our new video out called “Wonderland of Fantasy”to the 4th and 5th graders.  This video teaches students about the brain and mental  health.  Did you know that the Cerebrum is the largest part of the brain and its capacity is 85% of the brain.   We did some brain exercises and the kids were challenged on some of these exercises.  The students also had their favorite veggies and fruits that we talked about which is carrots, cucumbers, cilantro, lettuce, jalapenos, and cabbage which are very healthy for these kiddos.
