Sock for the Streets

Congratulations on a very successful Socks for the Streets campaign.

Thank you to Mrs. Silver and all of her students who worked so hard organizing and implementing the Socks for the Streets collection at St. Andrews. Of course, a thanks also goes to all those who donated to this very worthwhile cause.  They were able to collect 603 pairs of socks that will help to keep people who find themselves homeless a little warmer this winter.

Indie 88.1 provided buttons and a cool pair of sunglasses to each of the students for their efforts.  The students are learning real-world solutions to real-world problems.  Way to go Silver Stars!

Avoid Catching/Spreading the Flu

Flu Poster

Kids and Flu

The flu germs spread when people cough, sneeze or talk. The flu germs can also live on surfaces like toys, countertops, and door handles for up to eight hours.

Students can pass the flu germs to each other, to school staff and to family members before they show symptoms. Children under five, seniors and people in poor health are at greater risk of complications from flu.

Vaccination is the best protection against flu.  It takes 2 weeks for the vaccine to be fully effective so get it early.

Tips on staying healthy this flu Season:

  1. Get your flu shot early
  2. Wash your hands often
  3. Avoid touching face and eyes
  4. Cover your cough or sneeze
  5. Do not share drinking cups and utensils
  6. Disinfect common surfaces like door handles, hand railings, keyboards, cell phones and tablets.
