(Deming) -- Deming Public Schools held its first-ever Elementary Career Day Monday at the Mimbres Valley Learning and Special Events Center.
School Superintendent Harvielee Moore said the event was the idea of a fourth-grader last year who wrote to Moore suggesting it would be a good idea for fifth graders to participate in a career day to begin learning about career options and what skills and education levels were needed for each.
The student, Andres Reyes, chaired a steering committee convened by Moore which was comprised of a fifth-grade boy and girl from each elementary school. The students represented the 484 fifth graders in the district.
Moore said the students planned the event, named the careers they were interested in learning more about, and agreed that each school would prepare career collages as part of their studies in the classroom.
The committee members also designed a tee-shirt which each of the fifth-graders in the district wore to the event. The shirt slogan said: "Fifth Grade, the Future" on the front... and "The future is near..." with a Charlie Wildcat wearing a graduation cap and leaning on the words "Wildcats 2019" on the back.
Career presenters included the Southern Area Health Education Center... DeLaney and Hernandez, Attorneys at Law... High Desert Veterinary Clinic... Deming Police Department... McReynolds Family Chiropractic... Deming Fire Department... Rick Holdridge with the New Mexico Space Port Authority... Mark Vasconcellos, Move Production... and Mary Anderson and the Skills U-S-A students.
The Deming High School Junior R-O-T-C academic team has advanced to Level Two of the Junior R-O-T-C Leadership and Academic Bowl.
The local team competed against nearly 16-hundred teams from around the world in an online competition called "Zero Hour Threat" to earn the right to advance to Level Two.
Team members are, alphabetically: C-J Crawford, Giezi De Los Reyes, Omar Hidalgo, Tyler Prinz, Lester Voorhies, and Craig Weise. Instructors are Tim Timmons and Anthony Ramirez.
Reportedly, one of the main goals of the Junior R-O-T-C Academic Bowl is to prepare students for state exit and graduation exams, as well as college entrance exams such as the A-C-T and S-A-T.
In each level of the competition, the fast-paced event tests the students' knowledge using A-C-T-type questions in the areas of Junior R-O-T-C curriculum, English, math and science.
The level two online competition concludes Wednesday and then 24 academic teams will advance to the 2012 Army Junior R-O-T-C Leadership Symposium and Academic Bowl Championship in Washington, D-C, on the campus of George Mason University in June.
The winner of the Army Junior R-O-T-C Academic Championship will compete against the winners of the Air Force and Navy Junior R-O-T-C academic bowls in a newly established tri-service competition.
