     →  Wash your hands with soap and water often.

    →  Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.

    Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it.

    →  Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. 

    Germs spread this way.

    →  Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be

    contaminated with germs like the flu.

    →  If your child is sent home with a fever, they must be

    fever free for 24 hours without medication before they return to school.

    Today, Mrs. Davis' class

    made a compass from cork,

    needles, and magnets - much like

    Prince Henry the Navigator, an early explorer.

    Mrs. Flanagan's 4th grade science class had a

    guest speaker, Mr. Wren from Potomac Valley

    Audubon Society (PVAS),

    who came in to discuss watersheds.

    He also demonstrated how environmental pollutants

    (such as fertilizer, pesticides, etc) invade our lakes,

    ponds, rivers, and water supplies.  Students acted as rain

    clouds, spraying water down on the land, sending the

    pollutants down the landscape and into local water.

    Mr. Wren also did a model of erosion.  The blue tub had

    grass in it.  The green tub was just soil. 

    Two students poured water at the same time,

    same rate.  The pictures show sediment in the bottom

    of both tubs.  The blue tub with the grass, had less erosion

    and you can see less sediment.  The grass acts like a filter.

     

    PVAS is people dedicated to

    preserving, restoring, & enjoying

    the natural world through education & action.
