The Wednesday Wellness tip of the week is:

eye safety

October is Eye Safety Month.

Did you ever notice how different everyone’s eyes are?

But, everyone needs to protect his or her eyes because they help you see,

of course and you don’t need to wear goggles all day to protect them.

One thing you can do is not run with any sharp like scissors or sticks.

Remember, be safe not sorry!

I realized how much I like to sleep.

So when bedtime rolls around, don't fight it.

You'll feel so much better in the morning!

The Wednesday Wellness tip of the week is:

 

Good morning!      Welcome back.

For all the new students, on Wednesdays we give a health tip each week to

help you stay healthy.

 

This week our tip is to make a new friend.  You probably have some new students

in your classroom; we have over 40 new students this year in addition to the

kindergarten students so there are a lot of new faces. So, lots of new friends for

us to make.  Having a friend makes the fun times better and the not so fun times easier.

 

So go on out there with a smile and welcome someone to Chatham!
