“Today in our country is a day when we remember an event that happened 14 years ago in New York City.  Students – you were not born yet –  but your teachers, parents, and maybe older brothers and sisters remember that day.  It was unfortunately a sad day in our history, but instead of focusing on the sadness, I want to point out some positives … A lot of good people around the world showed kindness and love for each other by reaching out to the families affected; Firefighters and police officers showed great courage to help others; and all Americans came together to show the power of patriotism.  So to honor this day here at Waynesville Elementary, let’s remember to show each other kindness and love and to always have the courage to do the right thing.” 


COSI on Wheels will be visiting Waynesville Elementary School on Wednesday, September 9, 2015.  The program this year is called “The Incredible Human Machine.”  All elementary students will attend a 45 minute assembly that day.  Students in grades three through five will also attend a “hands on activities” session.  COSI’s Body Mechanic helps students learn what it takes to keep their body engines in tip-top shape. They will be able to explore the digestive, nervous, and circulatory systems, plus learn about nutrients and how exercise keeps a body healthy. 


This COSI On Wheels program compliments the National Science Education Standards, and encourages your students to apply the principles of health and nutrition to their daily lives.  


COSI is a hands-on science center located in Columbus, Ohio. Each year more than 300,000 students take part in COSI On Wheels programs, and in the past 30 years, COSI On Wheels has brought hands-on science into the lives of over 7.5 million students across the Midwest.  


A huge thank you to our WES P.T.O. who helps sponsor this event for all of our students!  Not only do they provide volunteers to help facilitate the day, but they also help pay for the cost of the COSI program.
