Child bereavement occurs when a child loses someone of importance in their life. There is substantial research regarding grief in adults, but there is less focus in literature about grief among children. Checkout Community Hospice Facebook for weekly "Positive Vibes" which include videos and kid crafts. If you know a child between the ages of 6-17 years old that needs Grief Support call (209)578-6300.

National Recycling Day What Is Recycling? Recycling is how we take trash and transform it into new products. There are several types of recycling processes that allow some materials to be used one or more times. Recycling is good for us and the environment because it reduces the use of new raw materials to product new products. It also reduces the energy we use, improves the quality of air and water, and fights climate change. All sorts of things can be recycled. Some of the most common processes used today recycle: Plastics Glass Metals Electronics Computers and accessories Textiles Newspapers and magazines Cardboard Soda cans, plastic water bottles, plastic milk cartons, newspapers, cereal boxes and old computers are just some of the common items that are recycled every day. If all of us were to recycle just a few items per day that we throw away, we can go a long way to improving the environment for our futures and future generations.

We celebrate Veterans Day on November 11th. Today is observed for Americans, to show that they are thankful for these men and women who protected our country and us. Many people visit cemeteries and put flowers and flags on Veterans' graves, put flags out on porches, have parades, wear bright red poppies, and take a moment of silence at 11am in remembrance of Veterans.

DANCING CRANBERRY STEM EXPERIMENT Is it science or magic? This is a super simple and fun way to explore states of matter, density, and more for Thanksgiving! Usually, you see this activity with raisins, but you can easily mix it up with dried cranberries for the holiday season. There are two great ways to set up this Thanksgiving science experiment that both cause the dried cranberries to dance but use slightly different ingredients. Give your science activities a fun twist for Thanksgiving this year. THANKSGIVING THEME Thanksgiving is the perfect time to experiment with pumpkins. apples and even cranberries! Our dancing cranberry experiment is an awesome example of simple chemistry and physics, and your kids will love this simple experiment just as much as adults! DANCING CRANBERRY EXPERIMENT Can you make cranberries dance? You can even try this with raisins, grains of salt, and even popping corn. If you don’t have a soda, you can also use baking soda and vinegar seen here. This is a bit of a combo of physics and chemistry, but we are going to focus on the buoyancy part here! YOU WILL NEED: Clear glass Dried cranberries Sprite HOW TO MAKE CRANBERRIES DANCE STEP 1. Fill the glass almost 3/4 full with Sprite. STEP 2. Add a small handful of dried cranberries to the Sprite. STEP 3. Watch the cranberries drop to the bottom of the glass, float to the top and back down again for several minutes.

Today is National School Bus Safety Week from October 19th- 23rd. School bus transportation plays a critical role in the education of our nation's students, and is the direct link between a neighborhood and the classroom. More than 25 million children ride the yellow bus every school day, and National School Bus Safety Week serves as a reminder for students, parents, teachers, and the community to keep school bus safety in the forefront. Here are tips to keep our children safe at the bus stop. Getting Ready for School -Have your children put everything they carry in a backpack or school bag so they won't drop things along the way. -Encourage them to wear bright, contrasting colors so they will be more easily seen by drivers. - Make sure children leave home on time so they can arrive at the bus stop before it is due, ideally at least five minutes early. Running after or in front of a bus is dangerous.

Hey Moon Cubs! This month is full of awesome. Look no further than Mr. A's Chalk-tober where he has been drawing a Halloween chalk drawing for every day in October. Mr. A has been doing chalk since quarantine began back in March. Now he has a bunch of chalk drawings dotted around his favorite places. Maybe you can even find some with your parents'! Like at Beard Park or Brethren Park right here in Waterford. Keep an eye out for more Chalk-tober art and maybe even get out there and do some of your own. Keep on being awesome, Moon Cubs!

Remembering those lost on 9/11/01 Here is information that you can take bits and pieces from to educate your children about.. What happened at the World Trade Center on 9/11 The hijacked Flight 11 was crashed into floors 93 to 99 of the North Tower (1 WTC) at 8:46 a.m. The hijacked Flight 175 struck floors 77 to 85 of the South Tower (2 WTC) 17 minutes later at 9:03 a.m. When the towers were struck, between 16,400 and 18,000 people were in the WTC complex. Of those, the vast majority evacuated safely. As they rushed out, first responders rushed in trying to save those still trapped or injured. The fires from the impacts were intensified by the planes’ burning jet fuel. They weakened the steel support trusses, which attached each of the floors to the buildings’ exterior walls. Along with the initial damage to the buildings’ structural columns, this ultimately caused both towers to collapse. The five other buildings in the WTC complex were also destroyed because of damage sustained when the Twin Towers fell. The collapse of the buildings left the site devastated. Thousands of volunteers came to Ground Zero to help with the rescue, recovery, and clean-up efforts, and on May 30, 2002, the last piece of WTC steel was ceremonially removed. Since then they have built a memorial and museum.

It’s National Read a Book day!! What a perfect time to stay indoors and cool off reading to, or with, our Moon students! Reading exposure for 20 minutes a day is important to develop vocabulary and comprehension. It’s proven that student who scored 90% better than their peers, on reading tests, read for more than 20 minutes a day. Stay cool and read some books!
