Albany students learn life lessons

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Some students at Sylvester Road Elementary school learned important life lessons Tuesday.

School leaders teamed up with Phoebe healthcare officials to teach third through fifth graders about hygiene, bullying, conflict resolution, positive self image and staying healthy. And their last stop through the life maze was graduation.

"I think the students have been excited about doing something different of course. And learning about things that they hear their parents talk about, their teachers reinforce and hopefully this will be a lesson that they can carry on throughout their life," said Maret Paschl, the elementary school counselor at Sylvester Road Elementary.

Folks at Phoebe say it's important to develop good habits at an early age and they hope to expand this event to other elementary schools.
