fire safety - check the batteries in your smoke detectors!

Parents, your child(ren) will be learning about smoke alarms and other fire safety during fire safety week. Working smoke alarms save lives! That’s right- having smoke alarms in your home is very important! Smoke alarms let you know there is a fire. Working smoke alarms also give you time to get outside if there is a fire. LOOK around your home and make sure you have a smoke alarms on every level and inside every room where people sleep. PRESS the “Test” button on each smoke alarm. If the smoke alarm makes a “beep, beep, beep” sound, it is working. Make sure you test each smoke alarm every month. If the smoke alarm does not make a sound, REPLACE the battery or batteries. If it still doesn’t work, replace the entire smoke detector.

Your Child can help, too! Ask your child what they have learned about fire safety! Conversations are a great way to educate our children and ourselves!

6 Great Ways to Develop Organizational Skills At Home

  1. Keep a family calendar and encourage your child to write their entries and reference the calendar when making plans.
  2. Introduce checklists: It can be as simple as “3 things to do before bed”.
  3. Assign chores that involve sorting or categorizing.
  4. Get ready the night before for school.
  5. Create a homework/papers box at home.
  6. Cook together- cooking teaches measuring, following directions, and managing time- all key elements in organization.
