Carlson kids have the brain on the brain

The brain is amazing, and children need to protect it.

That was the simple message that Carlson Elementary students heard last Thursday during the annual health fair. District nurse Mary Cain each year puts on the fair, which includes time for required hearing and eye testing, plus one topic that she explains to the children.

Last year, for example, kids learned about calling 911 in an emergency, and the older students learned the basics of CPR.
