Pre-Schoolers Make Play-Doh!
Recently, our youngest Bison at the Mallory Pre-School made their own Play-Doh!á They measured, poured, and mixed the ingredients.á The recipe called for 2 cups of flour, and 1 cup of salt.á I used a half cup measuring scoop and had the students tell me the number of half cup scoops we needed in order to correctly follow the recipe.á They were able to correctly convert the measurements. It was educational as well as helping students build fine motor skills and as you can see from the pictures, they had a great time.á

Mallory 2nd Graders and Eggs!
The students in Mrs. Redd's second grade class spent last week experimentingá with eggs in order to find the effects that different beverages have on our teeth. Egg shells and teeth are similar.á Students soaked eggs in milk, water, soda, orange juice, and vinegar.The next day they brushed the egg shell with toothpaste and observed the effects on the shell. Students then recorded the data and compared it to their prediction. Science is fun!

The district health services department would like to share some information with you. Attached is a Flu Fact Sheet from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. As we are in the flu season, watch for flu symptoms including fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, headache, may have vomiting and diarrhea, and feeling very tired. A person with the flu is contagious from 1 day before getting sick to 5-7 days after becoming sick.á The flu is spread mostly from person to person through coughs and sneezes of people who are sick; or by touching surfaces with the flu virus on it and then touching eyes, mouth or nose. To prevent the spread of viruses, wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, cover coughs and sneezes, and avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth.
School Attendance: Do not send you child to school if he/she is sick. Keep your child home from school for at least 24 hours after their fever is gone without having taken fever-reducing medication.
If you child gets flu-like symptoms, consult your doctor as needed, and make sure your child gets plenty of rest and drinks plenty of fluids. Children with chronic health conditions (like asthma or diabetes) may be more susceptible to the flu.
