Fireworks Safety Tips:
Be Extra Careful With Sparklers
Little arms are too short to hold sparklers, which can heat up to 1,200 degrees. How about this? Let your young children use glow sticks instead. They can be just as fun but they don’t burn at a temperature hot enough to melt glass.
Closely supervise children around fireworks at all times.
Take Necessary Precautions
Do not wear loose clothing while using fireworks
Never light fireworks indoors or near dry grass.
Point fireworks away from homes, and keep away from brush, leaves and flammable substances
Be Prepared for an Accident or Injury
Stand several feet away from lit fireworks
If a device does not go off, do not stand over it to investigate it. Put it out with water and dispose of it.
Always have a bucket of water or a fire extinguisher nearby
Know how to operate the fire extinguisher properly.
If a child is injured by fireworks
Immediately go to a doctor or hospital. If an eye injury occurs, don't allow your child to touch or rub it, as this may cause even more damage.

A Peek at Our Weeks:
As our summer program starts, parents will need to keep a close eye on our schedule so that you will know what is in store for your child on any given day. Our new summer activities will include:
A Note from Ms. Rachel:
Now that summer weather is in full swing, it’s time to take a look at those extra clothes that we keep here at the school. Many times children have grown over the year and extra clothes no longer fit when the need arises. When possible, please take the time to check the sizes of your child’s clothing to make sure everything still fits, as well as are weather appropriate.
