Jazz Diversity Project

Wednesday, October 28, 2015

The Sioux Falls Jazz and Blues Jazz Diversity Project (JDP) is coming to Wolsey on November 10 at 2:00pm in the Wolsey-Wessington Gym. JDP is a traveling assembly program which brings live jazz music into middle schools and high schools across South Dakota and began in 2006. Since the beginning, over 37,000 students have been exposed to this great program!

The Jazz Diversity Project is a 45-60 minute presentation combining jazz music education with American History, the Humanities, and Social Science curriculum. The presentation begins as students discover the role jazz music played in the early 1900's leading up through the Civil Rights Movement and into the present day. A live jazz combo and multi-media presentation brings the music to life, with music provided by the Dakota Jazz Collective. 

EMT Class Offered

Wednesday, October 28, 2015

The Wolsey EMS is offering an EMT class in Wolsey this winter and are looking for as many willing students as they can get. The EMT's of the volunteer ambulance service are looked upon as honest, trustworthy, volunteer professionals that are ready to help their neighbors on a moment's notice.

The class is scheduled to start November 17th. As of right now, the schedule is to run on a Tuesday/Thursday night schedule with one to two Saturdays a month. Classes will typically start at 6:30 and run for approximately 3 hours. Saturday sessions will last between 6-8 hours. The classes will try to remain as flexible as possible to meet the needs of the class. There will be no class from December 20th-January 4th for Christmas break. Classes are scheduled to finish the week before Easter with 2-3 makeup days built into the schedule.
