Yoga Class

Thanks to Judy’s Bubbles the Academic 
Troubadour program was able to host
Jen Davis.  Jen worked with students 
on animal stretching and belly  breathing. 
 The animal poses and breathing techniques 
the students learned help calm anxious feelings 
and nervousness.  The students and teachers 
enjoyed the session and left feeling calm.  This 
class was such a success that the Hospital School 
will have Jen come back once a month
 for more classes.

her staff visited the Hospital School to teach students about 
how soda and sweet tea can discolor teeth. Students made 
their own toothpaste and brushed boiled eggs which represented
 tooth enamel. What a fun way to learn about dental health!

What's the opposite of Making? Why, Unmaking of course. 
Using tools and brute strength (thanks for Mr. Robinson 
and tutor Harrison), kids took apart an old vcr, alarm clock, 
router, and tape player, saving the pieces for later to 
create something new Stay tuned!

Headbands of Hope

Headbands of Hope stopped by the Hospital School to make headbands

with students. Jess, the founder, talked to students about why she

started her company and helped students make flower crowns for themselves

and to give to others. The students enjoyed working with her, and several

teachers made flower crowns for students who could not leave their room.

Students also learned how to braid the flower crowns into their hair and do

hair styles that incorporated the crowns. Check out the Headbands of Hope 

website and Facebook pages for some beautiful holiday gift ideas!
