Our Scholars receive a lesson in First Aid

For our November monthly meeting, Starfish mom, Narcisa (mother of Scholarship recipient Marlon) shared with us some great knowledge on first aid.  We learned all about vital signs, how to act in an emergency situation, how to read a thermometer, how to check our pulses, various ways to give shots, etc.

Our Scholars were eager to learn about ways they can help out when someone in their family is sick.  This is just one more way our scholars learn to lead and learn to give back.  Speaking of giving back – don’t forget that as you shop this holiday season, don’t forget to shop via amazon using the following link: http://smile.amazon.com/ch/45-3805106 – 0.5% of your purchase total will be donated to Starfish with no additional cost to you!!

Check out the pictures below to see the first aid lesson in action!
