The Marlboro Middle School hosted their tenth annual Health and Wellness Day. Sixth and seventh graders were educated by local organizations on the latest information in health and safety. The following organizations played a role in the health fair: the Marlboro Police Department; Marlboro Hannaford; Marlboro Central School District Lunch; MVP and Mobile Life.
Students were separated by grade level. Each group had the opportunity to listen to a presentation by their SRO Officer Hamel. He educated the students on drugs, alcohol and the dangers of using them in addition to educating them on the smart use of social media and smartphones.
Students were engaged and learned a wealth of knowledge from the presentation. The Marlboro Fire Department did demonstrations on how to use fire equipment. Officer Fulton of the Marlboro Police Department, with student participation, demonstrated the procedure for a DWI stop. Mobile Life demonstrated to the students what it would be like to be on a stretcher if they had a head injury. And the Janine Beck, school nurse competition on who could buckle their seat belts fastest.
Fiona Debidictis, a sixth grade student said, “The health fair was a really fun experience. This was my first one and I learned alot about DWI tests from Officer Fulton.”
