Subject: Ridley Park Field trip opportunity
Drs. Karkenny and Hayes, orthodontists in Ridley Park are offering a free program at their office to teach children about dental hygiene. They run "stations" which explore proper brushing, flossing, nutrition, etc. They offer the kids free toothbrushes and toothpaste and dental education materials to take home. They are open to any grade but have worked successfully with third grade in the past. Since it is close - you could walk over and promote fitness as well. If anyone is interested, please contact Maria at 610-521-1110.
