Recognizing a pattern of injuries among student athletes who have subse­ quently received physical therapy, Keyes noted a tendency among some athletes - football players in particular - to overtrain and overstrain their chest muscles while avoiding the build up of back and scapular muscles. At the inservice, Keyes pointed out to students and coaches that the over­ straining of chest muscles can result in the weakening of muscles spanning from the neck to the shoulder blades and down to the lower back. The long term effects of building chest muscles only, could include muscle spasm, neck and back pain and shoulder impingement. \All parts of our body must be strengthened and maintained equally,\ emphasized Keys. \Think of a car,\ he said. \It won't run without gas and gas alone won't make a car go if it has a faulty engine.\ Keyes also recommended guidelines for student athletes to follow during any weight lifting program.

Visitors from South Africa at Schuyierville school T When two South African educators visited America recently, they put Schuyierville on their itinerary. Rina Prenzler, principal of a school outside Johannesburg, and Delilah Britz, assis­ tant principal and fourth grade teacher, were particularly interested in learning about the unique technological and career-related opportunities available to Schuyierville students. \I think one of the things that strikes me most is how high-tech the schools are and how technology is integrated into teaching and learning here,\ Britz commented. \We have a technology center in our school, but there is very little equipment,\ Prenzler explained. Prenzler and Britz work at a private school that has a diverse population. \Students speak any one of the 11 official languages of South Africa,\ Britz said. \We have children from very affluent families and children whose families live in squatting camps. We do have the choice of taking only the 'haves,' but that's not what our school is about. We want to make opportunities available to all children.\ In this, the educators saw simi­ larities to Schuyierville. They also saw similarities in attitudes toward career preparation. In fact, Schuylerville's Work Experience Program will likely serve as a model for a new program in South Africa. \Delilah and I want to help children find out about their talents and then be realistic about using those talents in a career. We would like to see students getting out and being useful, self-reliant citizens when they finish school,” Prenzler said. \That's why we find Schuylerville’s Work Experience Program so exciting. The visit proved to be a great op­ portunity for mutual exchange of ideas. \Our experiences here have helped us realize we're not as far behind as we thought,\ Britz said. \At the same time though, our visit to Schuylerviliemakes us set our goals even higher.\ School board meeting The Schuyierville Board of Educa­ tion will meet on Thursday, October 22, at 7:30 p.m. in the School District Office. The agenda is posted in each building and is also available from the Superintendent's office.
