A VIRUS is a teensy, tiny germ, way smaller than anything you can see . Viruses can make us sick, but they can’t do anything on their own — they need to live inside another creature (their host) to survive. To do that, they have to get into our cells. Viruses cause colds, chicken pox, measles, flu , and many other diseases. To avoid getting a virus, wash your hands often, especially before you eat and after you use the bathroom as well as after you touch animals and pets, after you play outside, and after you visit a sick relative or friend. There is a right way to wash your hands. Use warm water and soap and rub your hands together for at least 15 seconds, which is about how long it takes to sing “Happy Birthday.” Cover your nose and mouth when you sneeze and cover your mouth when you cough to keep from spreading germs. So if you have to cough, it is best to do it in your elbow so you are not contaminating your hands. Using tissues for your sneezes and

It is well known in Cheatham County, Tennessee, that A. O. Smith purchased State Industries (State Stove) which was one of the largest water heater manufacturing companies in the US. A.O. Smith is more than a water heater manufacturing company. A. O. Smith has been in operation for over 140 years having started in 1874 by Charles Jeremiah Smith. He made hardware parts for baby carriages and bicycles, and so much more! DID YOU KNOW THAT IN 1921, under the direction of L.R. Smith, A.O. Smith unveiled “The Mechanical Marvel,” the world’s first fully automated automobile frame assembly plant capable of making a frame every eight seconds (10,000 frames a day)! The plant operated until 1958.

sniffles is another great weapon against germs. But don’t just throw tissues on the floor to pick up later. Toss them in the trash and, again, wash your hands! Now that you know the facts about germs, you may still pick up a cough or a cold once in a while, but you’ll be ready to keep most of those invading germs from moving in. source: https://kidshealth.org/en/kids/germs.html

Here’s a look at twenty places where you might be picking up germs:

1. Airplanes 2. Buffet counters and salad bars 3. Gym equipment 4. Handrails in public spaces 5. Money 6. Phones that are shared with other people 7. Public tables 8. Restaurant menus 9. School 10. Shared computer keyboards 11. Shared showers 12. The hand dryers in public restrooms 13. The local ATM machine 14. The peanuts at the local bar 15. Toothbrushes 16. Video game controllers 17. Wallets, ID cards and frequently-used purses 18. Your computer’s keyboard and mouse

19. Your own cell phone 20. Your own kitchen sink

Of course, no one wants you to become a germophobe but becoming more conscious of washing your hands when coming into contact with these places and things is probably a smart move to make.

From the desk of Dr. Cathy Beck, Director of CC Schools

Dear Students,

Dear Students, It is hard to believe that this is my final letter for the year. Who knew that our

year would end the way it did? First and foremost, I want you to know how much we miss you!! You are on our minds everyday. We want to make sure that you have everything you need to be safe, healthy, and to continue learning. School is not closed; the buildings are . We’ve certainly learned that school is so much more than a building. Some learning resources that I want you to take advantage of are iReady Math and Literacy , the lessons on Tennessee Public Television, virtual field trips, and lessons and challenges from your teachers. I cannot impress enough the importance of reading and writing each day. Why don’t you keep a journal recording details from this historic time? For sure you’ll tell not only your children but also your grandchildren about what it was like during the COVID19 Pandemic. Finally, rest assured that this will pass. Everything will be okay and life will get back to normal.

Steinbach has come out tops in North America in an annual litter audit commissioned by the Canadian Beverage Container Recycling Association. Executive Director Ken Friesen says the rate of littering for empty beverage containers in Steinbach has dropped 69 per cent since they started doing the audit in the city in 2013. Every year, they hire third party litter audit firms to come and measure the litter in six different cities in Manitoba and Steinbach has again way outshone every other place, not only in Manitoba, but in North America, which is remarkable. The litter audit people say this is by far, not only terms of beverage containers, but in terms of other litter, the cleanest city that they’ve audited in North America. Audit firms use a GIS mapping system to randomly select sites in each of the cities. They then lay out a rectangle, which is four metres by two metres, and pick up every piece of litter, cigarette butts and anything that’s litter in that area. In a place like Steinbach, they might do 100 of these sites to get a good sampling from across the community using a very scientific approach. What sets Steinbach apart in being such a clean city? they have a really good Public Works department that keeps bins serviced so bins are not overflowing and people tend to use them more and not litter. Their recycling bins play a huge role, however there has to be something more to have that kind of a remarkable difference, i.e.: responsibility and a sense of people caring for their own community. They also host annual pick-up and walk clean-up campaign in the spring. Involving youth to go up and pick up litter for a couple or hours, they’re more conscious of how they behave themselves which has a tremendous impact.

Nothing beats sunscreen when it comes to protecting your skin from harmful UV rays, but did you know that eating certain foods can boost your body’s natural SPF ? Watermelon is high in lycopene. They protect your body from the free radicals that come from sun exposure and pollution. The extra vitamin C also helps to quickly repair any damaged skin cells and redness. Pick up a pink watermelon, though. One study found that the yellow-fleshed watermelons had less lycopene and antioxidant properties than the pink-fleshed.
