We had our first COVID 19 informational workshop with the parents at Blossom Head Start. We walked through the process of signing up for the vaccine, showed some engaging videos on mitigation, and hosted a lively and important Q&A session. Our parents were so tuned in to the latest news, speaking candidly and anecdotally. The thing about these parent meetings is that many people take them in a car on the way to work, at home with children all around, or actually on the job. Their ability to stay present was awesome. Thank you to all that made this event happen! Especially our talented AmeriCorps VISTA group!

The CDC website has the very best information on the safety and effectiveness of the COVID 19 vaccine. Here is a link that explains the current situation with Johnson & Johnson. Nearly 7 million people received the vaccine, SIX individuals had a reaction that caused them to temporarily pause distribution. If you had the J&J vaccine, you don't have to be alarmed, just listen to your body and call your doctor if anything seems strange. We are very grateful at how closely these reactions are monitored and still have enormous faith in science and vaccines. #Readhttps://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/safety/JJUpdate.html
Our smallest friends at Early Head Start got a surprise; Caterpillars! They are having so much fun learning about their life cycle, and can't even wait for the day they become butterflies. They have named two of them, and are looking for naming advice on the others. Give us your best caterpillar names! So far we have Cotter and Snake! #leaveyourideasbelow#nameit#soitshallbe
Head Start is infrastructure! And we are proud of it! We can't expect families to move forward if no one is there to nurture and educate their children while they earn! WE ARE THE BACKBONE! https://t.co/YFRxxwUchx
We will not be silent.
We will not tolerate hate.
We cannot live in a climate of constant violence.
