************SENIOR ADVICE TO YOUNGER STUDENTS!******************
Today's advice comes from Natasha Kusi ('16): Use your 9th grade year wisely and take advantage of all the opportunities, including internships, because by the time you get to senior year you're going to feel overwhelmed with too much going on. 
SHOUT OUT to the student volunteers of SGA who helped with the Blood Drive. Does your class read the announcements? Shout your teacher out! See Ms. Davis or email

Correct Answer to Medical Question:
B) clean the perineal area from front to back. Reason: When changing a female neonate's diaper, the caregiver should clean the perineal area from front to back to prevent infection and then dry the area thoroughly to minimize skin breakdown. For a male, the caregiver should clean and dry under and around the scrotum. Because of anatomic factors, a female's diaper should have the double thickness toward the back. The diaper, not the neonate, should be positioned properly. Placing a disposable diaper over a cloth diaper isn't necessary. The direction of urine flow can't be ensured.
