Welcome to June! Well, this is the last week of school; actually only a day and a half! Please remember to keep an eye out for the kids as the summer begins!

Baby sitters camp

The American Red Cross is planning a baby sitters boot camp in June for ages 11 though 15. There will be two sessions: from June 10 to 13 and from June 17 to 20. Each session will run from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day.

Students will learn to be the best baby sitter on the block and gain the confidence to make smart decisions and stay safe in any baby-sitting situation.

Students will learn how to perform infant and child CPR, perform standard first aid, supervise children and infants, perform basic child-care skills such as diapering and feeding, choose safe, age-appropriate games and toys, identify safety hazards and prevent injuries, care for common injuries and emergencies such as choking, burns, cuts and bee stings, communicate effectively with parents, and find and interview for baby-sitting jobs.


The cost is $125. Financial aid is available. Call the Red Cross at 301-739-0717 to receive an application.
