Norwood Visits and Learns from Huntington Hospital

Recently, first graders from Norwood Avenue went on a field trip to Huntington Hospital. During the trip, students learned from hospital staff about nutrition, hygiene, playing safely, and not smoking. Additionally, the staff gave students a tour of several hospital features. This tour helped ensure students would feel comfortable if they were ever to visit a loved one at a hospital, or have to go themselves. At the end of the afternoon, students were shown how to attempt care-taking procedures on the stuffed animals that each of them brought along on the trip. Students learned how put on a hospital bracelet, how to administer a Band-Aid, and more.
