Our Annual Teen CERT Mock Disaster is Thursday, March 9th and we NEED HELP!
On Thursday, March 9th, we’re going to be doing a ‘full’ mock disaster with our Teen CERT program and we need your help! Parents - Please sign up to volunteer at our Mock Disaster.
Teen CERT is a program we do with our 7th and 8th grade students that teaches leadership and communication skills during emergency situations. Our students have been training 90 minutes every Friday since September to respond to natural disasters and other emergencies in their school. The Teen Community Emergency Response Team (Teen CERT) educates students in disaster preparedness for hazards that could affect their school and trains them in basic response skills including fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, triage and first aid. Teen CERT students learn how to be first responders at a school disaster scene, and then transfer command over to better-trained authorities when they arrive. The program culminates in a student exercise of a mock disaster, with several regional fire, police and emergency response personnel participating in the drill as well.

GARDEN HELP NEEDED!
The MMCA Garden could really use some help! We are in need of a parent to implement the monthly garden lessons for the Garden Docents. You do not need experience with creating or implementing lessons as most are already done for you and Kristin Thomas will train and support you every step of the way. If you have any questions or are interested, please contact Kristin Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
