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

Sensory Bin Journal Writing

Preschool has really dug deep into their learning by getting their hands fully emerged into the class sensory bin. As part of a journaling activity, students search for the letters of their name in a bin filled with rice and then arrange them on their journaling board. In a very fun and interactive way, our preschoolers are learning about letters and writing skills, something that will serve them for their entire lives.

Omnia Sol- “Everywhere Light”

‘Omnia Sol’, which means “everywhere light” in Latin was the title for our most recent concert. Music for this concert focused on themes of hope, resilience, adventure, and joy. With music from the classical era, the romantic era, spiritual, gospel and jazz, (and a few favorite movie themes thrown in), Concordia students brought “light” to our Concordia and Hanoi community through their performance Friday.

A special thanks to Mrs. Nancy Durance, Concordia’s upper school music teacher and our music students in the middle and high school choirs & chamber ensemble orchestra for all their hard work in beautifully bringing this concert together.

HANOI’S MASJID AL NOOR

Dr. Nelson’s Comparative Religions class recently took their learning outside of the classroom. In the new elective course, students studied seven major world religions and compared them to discover similarities and differences. “The chance to visit a mosque and meet an imam in Hanoi was just too good of a comparative practice to pass up,” Dr. Nelson said. On any given Friday, 200-300 Muslims gather for prayer at Masjid Al Noor, the only mosque in Hanoi and northern Vietnam. On the Friday of their visit, students arrived just as the weekly prayer gathering dismissed. In their meeting with the imam and his wife, students learned that the Muslim presence

in Vietnam extends back about one thousand years. Indian traders brought the religion, and it found acceptance among the Cham tribal group in central Vietnam. There are over forty mosques in central Vietnam. The Al Noor mosque itself is one hundred years old. The imam spoke to the youth about Islam’s five pillars. He also answered their many questions about practicing Islam in Vietnam. On the drive back to the Concordia campus, students shared observations, such as: “The imam and his wife are Vietnamese, well educated, and soft spoken.” Dr. Nelson believes that the best way to break down divisive stereotypes is to meet and befriend people of different religions and cultures. “There is nothing like a friendship for helping us overcome misperceptions,” he said. His students experienced this truth first hand in their visit to Hanoi’s only mosque.
