New to Cambridge this year is the COUGAR NEWS! This newspaper was started by several 5th grade boys who were inspired by book, The Landry News by Andrew Clements. They have published their 9th issue, which I am proud to share with you today. Please click on the link below to read the Cougar News!

~ NURSE NOTES ~

From Mrs. Guidice's Health Office

Five Ways to Beat a Cold

  1. Wash your hands often. Most colds are transmitted through indirect physical contact.
  2. Drink plenty of fluids. It helps flush germs from your body.
  3. Get a good night’s sleep. This keeps your immune cells powered up.
  4. Keep at least three feet away from coughers and sneezers. This helps avoid contact with airborne droplets, which may make you sick.
  5. Have chicken soup. Any warm fluids can help relieve cold symptoms and act as an expectorant.


Sleep

School age children need 10-12 hours of a sleep a night. Lack of sleep can cause irritable or hyper types of behavior and may make it more difficult for kids to pay attention in school. It is important to have a consistent bedtime. No matter what your child’s age, establish a bedtime routine that encourages good sleep habits. These tips can help ease kids into a good night’s sleep:

  • Power down. Turn off electronics at least one hour before bedtime. If your child has a TV in their room, consider removing it. Research shows that children who have a TV in their room tend to sleep less.
  • Create a calming routine. Winding down each night with the same routine signals that it is time for sleep.
  • Stick to a bedtime. Alert your child a half hour and 10 minutes beforehand.

FREE DENTAL CHECK-UP


On Friday, February 7, 2014, dental offices in the area will offer free dental services for children ages 12 and younger. These services, part of the New Jersey program, Give Kids a Smile! include examinations, cleaning, and corrective procedures such as extractions and fillings, at no cost to you! PLEASE SEE THE FLYER FOR MORE INFORMATION.
