  • Poison Prevention

    Posted by Colleen Stevens on 3/28/2019 3:25:00 PM

    March is National Poison Prevention Month!  On Wednesday, we had students from the Albany College of Pharmacy teach the Kindergarten classes about Poison Prevention.  The kids realized that some poisons and medications look very similar to foods and drinks that are safe to eat and drink.  They were shown vitamins, candy and medications and noticed how similar they all looked. They also saw that some juices and sports drinks look very similar to household cleaners.  They were also shown pictures of berries, plants, mushrooms and some outdoor critters and also saw that those too, can be confusing.  The overall message was to make sure a child asks an adult before touching or eating something that has a possibility of making them sick.

  • Friendship Soup

    Making friendship soup


    Kids loved creating and eating their very own friendship soup!  Many children added ingredients such as 2 tablespoons of kindness, a dash of silliness, and a gallon of caring.  Ask your child what they think are important ingredients to friendship soup!
