Together We Can Fight the Flu
FACT: The flu vaccination does not protect people from all strains of the influenza virus. But to help prevent it, it’s important to boost your immune system by eating more vegetables, bundle up when it gets cold, wash your hands, and stay away from anyone with the flu.
FACT: The vaccine, like almost all medications, isn’t immediate. It takes time.

To extend their unit on weather in class, our kindergarten class learned about meteorology from Perot Museum educator Marsha last week!
