Midway Elementary students learn how to be hygienic

MILLEDGEVILLE — Communities In Schools of Milledgeville-Baldwin County (CISMBC) hosted a health fair at Midway Elementary School Wednesday for students in grades three through five to encourage and promote good hygienic habits.

‘The theme is healthy kids are smart kids. The goal is to make sure they start taking ownership of their own health,’ CISMBC Midway Site Coordinator Joyce Denson said. ‘They need a hands-on approach to learn the various things they can do.’

Participating vendors included Dr. Gregory Graham giving insight about proper teeth care, a county extension agent from Fort Valley State University, Central Georgia Technical College nursing students checking weight, height and blood pressure, Judith Keim teaching pet therapy, the Baldwin County Children’s Study and Georgia College representatives discussing hand-washing techniques.

One student from each grade will be the winner of a bookbag filled with various items through a drawing. Bookbags were donated by Robins Federal Credit Union, Magnolia State Bank and Fowler Flemister Concrete.
