Mrs. Tammy Hickson and Mrs. Annette Muchison’s class, along with the rest of the student body, had a wonderful time learning about community helpers in a recent classroom unit of study. Several community visitors talked to DAFFODIL students about how they serve the public, including Sergeant Michael Ray from the Sherriff’s Department. Accompanied by his dog, Miko, Sgt. Ray demonstrated how they work together to keep the public safe.
Local veterinarian Reuben Flanders read a book about being a veterinarian and showed students how he reads x-rays. He also brought his working dog Universal, a stray that Dr. Flanders adopted. Universal's task is to help other dogs by donating blood to them. Veterinarian assistant Taylor Miles also accompanied Dr. Flanders for the demonstration.
Corporal Josh Taylor from the Georgia State Patrol and Michael James and Jessica McIntosh from the Waycross Police Department showed students their cars, put handcuffs on a teacher, and talked about their jobs. As a special treat, the Air Evac helicopter visited DAFFODIL and landed in the back of the school for the children to watch. Thanks to Pilot Tony Pedrosa, Paramedic Chris McDaniel, and Nurse Wendy Tanner for showing students their helicopter and describing their jobs. Dusty Godwin, Martin Todd, Hunter Griffis, and Captain Randall Miles of the Waycross Fire Department visited the school as well. Students enjoyed exploring their trucks and asking lots of questions.
