We would like to thank our neighboring school of Westover High School for coming to help celebrate Read Across America with our students.  The Robotics Team came to share their knowledge and skill of building and managing the robots for our 5th Graders.  Our students had the opportunity to control some of the robots that were brought as they discussed what tasks they had to program their robots to do in order to prepare for competition.  The football players came and took time to visit each of our classrooms to read stories from Dr. Suess in honor of his birthday.  These students are exemplary examples of what the future can hold for our young scholars!

Image of an Asian family eating a meal in a white kitchen What began as a week-long observance in March of 1973 as “National Nutrition Week”, it soon became a month-long observance in 1980 in response to growing public interest in nutrition.  With hectic schedules, it has become the norm to have a grab-and-go meal, but it is suggested that coming together for family meals is one way for children to learn how to make wise choices when eating.  This bonding time offers the family a chance to try new foods and to discuss the daily activities that are often missed out on while at work and school.

The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and sometimes the lungs.  The best way to prevent the flu is by getting a flu vaccine each year.  The Center for Disease Control states that it is important to get a flu vaccination each year.  The CDC also recommends everyday preventive actions (like staying away from people who are sick, covering coughs and sneezes and frequent handwashing) to help slow the spread of germs that cause respiratory (nose, throat, and lungs) illnesses, like flu.  Making healthy choices at school and at home can help prevent the flu and spreading flu to others.

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month and dental professionals across the nation are collaborating to promote oral health to our nation’s youth. This includes reaching out and educating teachers and parents on the importance of establishing good oral habits and hygiene at an early age.  It is encouraged to make toothbrushing fun by providing children with toothbrushes that may have their favorite characters on them and by helping them time their brushing by humming along to their favorite songs.
