CCEA held the March Representative Assembly tonight. Sarah and other reps enjoyed the sandwiches made by CCCTC. Thank you Mr. Norwood's class for making delicious sandwiches, wraps, and desserts. Be sure to come out to CCCTC's Big Breakfast on April 9th. Proceeds benefit our students.
March is #WomensHistoryMonth, another opportunity to highlight our unique and powerful role in telling a more complete American story through the places we are honored to preserve and protect. Visit any of the more than 400 national parks across the country or join a ranger program to learn more or reflect on women's contributions of past and present.
This month, we also celebrate the 200th birthday of Harriet Tubman, who escaped to freedom at age 27, then helped dozens of enslaved people find freedom on the Underground Railroad. Harriet Tubman National Historical Park, Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historical Park, the National Underground Railroad Network to Freedom and partners have collaborated to recognize Tubman's life and impact from enslavement to freedom.

March 1 marks the first day of Women’s History Month! MSEA celebrates Claire McCardell, a Maryland-born fashion designer.

Each year, approximately 60,000 young children are treated in emergency departments after getting into medicines on their own or after dosing errors by adults. It’s important to make sure that medicine is always immediately returned to its safe storage location. Traveling? While staying with family or friends or at a hotel, find a safe storage place that is out of sight and reach of young children, like a high cabinet. If you’re in a hotel room, try the passcode-protected room safe for safe storage.
All opioids should be stored in their original packaging. Don't store them in places medicines are usually kept, such as in a bathroom or kitchen cabinet. Instead, place them in a locked cabinet, lockbox, or other location where people can't easily access them. For more information visit https://www.cdc.gov/wtc/prescriptionsafety.html
