Handwashing and Hygiene 101!
This week the younger students learned about the importance of good handwashing and hygiene. Students learned the eight stages of handwashing to help keep them healthy and ready to learn. Together we focused on the importance of handwashing before meals, after using the bathroom, as well as when one coughs or has to blow
his/her nose. Please reinforce these skills at home with your child. Students also read and discussed Julia Cook’s story; Hygiene You Stink!This is a fun story about the importance of bathing and wearing clean clothes. Here are some parenting
videos that may be of help in this area.
