Design Thinking

As the start of a five-week project, Grade 3 students have put their imaginations to work as they embark on the Design Thinking process. The idea is to come to a final outcome without thinking about current restrictions and deterrents.  The entire process relies heavily on creating a prototype of what kind of outcomes the creator envisions.  In our students’ case, they visualized what a ‘super-hero’ city might look like and without only a limitation of imagination, built a model of what they thought would work well.

Health Focus: Don’t be Dengue Scared! Be Dengue Safe!

Dengue is caused by a virus that is spread from person to person by the bite of a female Aedes mosquito (the same mosquito that spreads yellow fever and Zika infection).  These mosquitoes can bite anytime in the day or night.

*Note the black and white stripes on its body and legs

  • Most people develop fever and flu-like symptoms that begin between 4-7 days after the bite and last for about a week

  • Symptoms include a high fever plus severe headache, severe pain behind the eyes, joint pain, muscle and bone pain, rash, and mild bleeding (bruising easily, gums or nose bleed).

  • If you think you have dengue, do not take aspirin products or ibuprofen, use acetaminophen.  Get lots of rest and take plenty of liquids.

  • A family member who has dengue can be a source of infection for others at home- keep infected persons under a mosquito net.  

  • PREVENTION OF MOSQUITO BITES is the goal. Some ways to do this are:

    • Remove any standing water where mosquitoes can lay eggs, like pet watering containers and flower vases!

    • Spray exposed skin with insect repellent sprays that contain 20-30% DEET

    • Using air conditioners and window screens can keep mosquitoes stay out of your house
