As we are well into the season of colds and flu, please encourage self-care skills at home. Taking your child to the mirror so they can see themselves as they wipe their own noses will give them great practice! Also, encourage them to cough and sneeze into their sleeves to prevent the germs from spreading. Hand washing is so important in preventing the spread of germs. Encourage your child to wash hands after using tissues and after every toilet/diaper change. A simple song to help with hand washing is as followed:

Wash, wash, wash your hands,

Wash the germs away,

Watch the suds go down the drain,

So germs do not stay!

Good Morning Families,

This morning we had a practice Lock Down Drill.  So if your child says they took a “field trip” to the basement, that is why.

The new and “like new” Teddy Bear collection drive is taking place through Friday, February 12th.

Please remember to send outdoor apparel for your child, especially as the weather warms up (hopefully!) as the week progresses.  Snow boots and pants are utilized by Children’s House students.

In February, remember to check out your child’s pointillism art work inspired by Seurat, on display at the Way Public Library.

The Emerald Room invites you to join them in collecting new or like new Teddy Bears to be donated to traumatized children and the forgotten elderly.  Teddy Bears collected will be taken to Zoar Lutheran Church where the women’s group “The Popcorn Gang” is heading up the collection.  They are working with the “Good Bears of the World”  organization with the intention of easing loneliness and inspiring love and compassion through gifts of Teddy Bears.  Some will go to firemen and EMT workers to carry on fire trucks and rescue squads to help calm and console victims of fires, accidents, and other tragedies.  Others will be given to families of terrorist attacks, and victims of school tragedies, domestic violence victims and others.  For each Teddy Bear donated, “Good Bears of the World” will match the gift.  Collection baskets will be available in the office starting Tuesday, January 19 through Friday, February 12.  Remember bears do not have to be new, just like new.  Teddy Bears only please.
