Day 57

In the morning, I worked on my final paper for a while until I decided to have the Back to School Promotion for forty minutes in the hall. I had about fifteen kids within that time that came up to the table to spin the wheel, so I decided to introduce and review 5-2-1-0 with them and which of their favorite thing was to do from 5-2-1-0. It went well.
Right after I finished the promotion, I prepped for Ebonwood, as today was the last day and I was doing it alone. I decided to use the Physical Activity Chair Bingo for the middle and older children and have a ‘5’ themed coloring contest with the youngest group. The outreach with Ebonwood was extended due to set up and other guest speakers with other groups. I stayed with the middle group the longest for the activity. They were thrilled. I went back to the health department to prep for National Night Out with Kara and Skye. The purpose for the event is to raise awareness about drug and crime rates, and support local organizations to prevent crimes. We talked about giving out 5-2-1-0 frisbees, multiple colored sunglasses, and inflatable footballs. I wasn’t aware the event was going to be as big as it was. There seemed like less sponsors there, but the crowds made up for it. It was a quick three hours that we were there. I was able to even do some personal networking as a health educator, while informing the public about services offered, and 5-2-1-0 for parents and potential partners for CHEN.
