RSS CTE (Career & Technical Education) teachers participated in a team building exercise in August prior to students returning to school to begin the new school year. Bike-Building Exercise Teachers divided into teams of 4-5 and each team built a bike with, not only no instructions, there were also missing or incorrect parts in each box. This exercise teaches the importance of working together with individual groups, and it also teaches the importance of working with the group at large in order to get all the parts needed to accomplish the task. Powerful Conclusion At the end of the exercise, and the most powerful part of this project and unknown to the participants, was the announcement that deserving 4th or 5th grade students from Koontz Elementary would be arriving to receive thei r assembled bike. This illustrates that behind all we do, should always be our students. It was a powerful moment for everyone involved and present. SPONSORS There were several sponsors for this event, including the platinum sponsor, Daimler Trucks. Other sponsors were the Barr Family and F&M Bank. The event took place at the Wallace Educational Forum. Parent Teacher Magazine • Sept/Oct 2018 • 3
