A young boy looks at the camera, while an officer talks about the helicopter behind him.

This fall, NCCS’ amazing counseling department hosted a school-wide interactive safety expo!! Health and safety experts in our community led students through critical lessons on staying safe and making positive personal choices.

 

A group of NCCS students watch as a doctor holds a vile of sugar next to a single Gatorade bottle.


Stations included a DEA helicopter landing on the field, a diseased lung exhibit (with real lungs the students were able to manipulate), McGruff the Crime Dog, a nutritionist who talked about healthy eating (cue the mom guilt over how much sugar is in Cheerios- holy cow!), lessons on the power of our words and recognizing peer pressure, Internet safety, drug awareness, and self-defense training. Wow! What a day!
