Dental Health Night is Feb. 15

Did you know that 50 million school hours (in the U.S.) are lost each year due to the pain of dental problems? More than half of Sullivan County third graders suffer from untreated cavities.

Let’s do dinner and talk teeth!

Join us for a special evening on Thursday, Feb. 15 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Liberty Elementary School Cafeteria where students and their parents can:

• enjoy free dinner;
• learn how to re-think your drinks;
• learn more about fluoride varnishing;
• take part in dental health themed giveaways;
• enter to win raffle prizes;
• free vision screenings for all students;
• receive free oral health screenings from a dental hygienist (children only.)

The Feb. 15 dental health night is a program that is being funded by the Community Foundation of Orange & Sullivan Make a Difference Grant and the National PTA 2018 Take Your Family to School Week Grant. This event is being held in honor of National Children’s Dental Health Month and the Liberty Parent Teachers Association (PTA) is one of only 55 PTA’s in the country to receive special grant funding.

This event is part of Liberty School District Health Education series which will include a Math & Movement Night and a health fair in the coming months.

Program support includes the Boys & Girls Club, Catskill Regional Medical Center, Cornell Cooperative Extension, Eat Smart New York Hudson Valley, Liberty Networking Group, Liberty PTA, PRASAD Children’s Dental Health Program, Sullivan County Public Health Services and Sullivan 180.

It is our collective hope that our district family members join us on February 15 and have fun learning about keeping their teeth healthy from local dental and health professionals.

RSVPs are necessary and required by Feb. 13, 2018. Please contact Alyssa Pagano at (845) 292-5400 ext. 2055 or e- to RSVP. Please indicate how many adults and children will be attending.
