Seaside Neighborhood School students show their professionalism

Seaside students showed off their je ne sais quoi at The Amazing Shake Competition on Friday, Jan. 31.

The Amazing Shake is a competition that places an emphasis on teaching students manners, discipline, respect and professional conduct. Prior to the competition, students learn the nuances of professional human interaction and they are taught skills such as how to give a proper handshake, how to “work a room,” how to give a successful interview and how to remain composed under pressure. The goal is to prepare our students so that they are able to present themselves exceptionally well for opportunities today as well as those that will come in the future.

The second round of The Amazing Shake was held at Thrills Laser Tag and Arcade. Students competed at three stations: ring of fire, interviews and commercial filming. The top eight scorers advanced to the final round which was held at Bud & Alley’s Waterfront Restaurant on Feb. 26.

The winning students of the Seaside Amazing Shake will move on to the National Competition at the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta, Ga.

Courtney Davis joined the Seaside staff in 2016 and currently teaches sixth grade language arts and sixth grade world cultures. She and her husband, Cory, live in South Walton with their twins, Cooper and Chloe, who are currently in the fifth grade at SNS.
