The students in Joanna Connors' Human Development class at Northview High School will present a campaign to inform NHS students and staff about H1N1 prevention.
The campaign will run the week of Sept. 21-25, and will consist of posters, skits and announcements.
One group of students designed posters with tips and reminders on how to prevent H1N1 from spreading. The information was acquired from Internet research and the Center for Disease Control.
The posters are brightly colored hoping to grab the attention of students.
Mini-posters will be posted throughout the building -- several in restrooms to encourage hand washing.
Another group of students have been writing skits and will perform them on the morning announcements, NTV. "Previews of coming attractions" will appear Friday.
The main attractions will appear Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday on NTV.
A wrap-up skit Friday will review and re-emphasize the importance of hand washing, covering your cough and staying home if you are sick.
Human Development students are enthused about this campaign. They are hoping all students and staff at NHS and in the community will be diligent in preventing the spread of the swine flu. The goal is definitely to reduce the number of students and adults infected with H1N1.
