Great things are happening at WCS!

This week our 8th grade students had a chance to visit Morse High School to hear about programs and extracurricular activities during their step-up day. Students got to see the new auditorium and did a great job of representing Woolwich Central School while at MHS.

LINES FROM THE LIBRARY

What a great year of reading at WCS! In spite of a hybrid schedule and all library books being delivered on carts, our Wildcats still managed to check out and read over 10,000 books. Way to go! However, it’s now that time of year to bring all those library books back. Check outs will continue through Monday, but PLEASE RETURN ALL LIBRARY BOOK ON TUESDAY, JUNE 8TH. Bills will be sent home for any books that have not been returned by the middle of next week. Thank you so much for all your support of our Wildcat readers.

 

HEALTHY HIGHLIGHTS


Brown Tail Rash is a toxin associated with short stiff hairs or bristles on the caterpillar of the brown tail moth. The caterpillars are active from May to July, but the dermatitis is most common in June and July when toxins reach their highest concentration in the mature caterpillars. The signs and symptoms of the rash can develop at the time of the exposure OR be delayed for several hours. Severe rashes have developed after contact with clothing which came in contact with the wind blown hairs while being dried outside.  The duration of the rash varies from hours to days. Treatment is focused on relieving symptoms and eliminating exposure.  You may find taking a cool shower and changing clothing that may have come in contact with the brown tail moth hairs helpful. Dry laundry inside during the peak months of June and July.  This synopsis is from the Department of Human Services Disease Control.  ~ Roberta Sherwood, R.N, BSN,MEd
