Today's lesson: Teeth

Everyone needs to learn how to clean their teeth properly! And this is just what Katie, our volunteer, did for the pre-school and school-age classrooms. And oh how the kids LOVED it! Having this oral health lesson for our kids fits into our goal of being healthy and staying healthy. And this includes caring for those teeth!

Katie had a display with her as well as examples to show the children how unhealthy food can rot your teeth and how eating apples and drinking milk will make your teeth stronger. Using peanut butter and juice as an example in the pre-school room, she got the children to have fun and learn at the same time. A lot of the school-age children asked questions during their lesson and they learned that sugary beverages are bad for their teeth and that they should brush and floss every day.

Other pictures shown in the slideshow include our office move. A few of the administrative staff moved into new offices in the house next door so we had our wonderful volunteer Seth help us out. Bob hurt himself in the meantime, but he is a tougher man for it! I made sure to bandage him up and put him right back to work!

Thank you all for reading this post and staying dedicated to DXC! We couldn't do all that we do without you and your support! Have a blessed day!
