Check out what we've been learning about washing our hands!
3rd & 4th Grade students tested their hand washing skills with our special "germ" powder. After rubbing the powder all over their hands, they were challenged to wash their hands the best they knew how with soap and water. We used a special black light to check their hands after washing and the results were SCARY!! We reviewed the correct way to wash hands and discussed the importance of soap and water.
With flu/strep season nearby, please remind your children to wash their hands:
1. after they use the restroom
2. after playing outside, or with pets
3. when they get home from school
4. always before they eat
5. before they go to bed
6. when hands are visible soiled
This will help prevent illnesses that spread throughout the year!
