They are cute though aren't they?
The costumes are done!! I am so glad. It's been a crazy couple of weeks running back and forth from my office to my boss's office. I would go to my desk to check e-mails and phone messages, handle what needed to be handled and then run back and sew for a little bit and then repeat over and over throughout the day. I wanted to keep up with my work as much as possible, because I hate being behind.
Anyway, you remember the hand sanitizer costumes. My boss and another staff member will wear these.
Here are the germs that our four nurses will wear. They'll be wearing green or purple tights and long sleeve t-shirts under them. It should be pretty funny. Keep in mind I did not create the character. It's straight off a picture on the Internet. I could never come up with something like that!
Now I am just waiting for the t-shirts to come in so I can get those out to the district office staff and the principals and assistant principals. My daughter's marketing company did them for us. They are black with a white ghost and say "Boo To The Flu" on them. They are really cute.
The plan is to wear this stuff the Friday before Halloween. It is our effort to keep flu prevention in the forefront. We don't have any confirmed cases of H1N1 in our district yet, but Irv's little Catholic school has 2 confirmed cases this week. We know it's coming, but the more we can do to remind the kids to cover their coughs and wash their hands, the better off we will be.
There is a high school in our area that is closed this week because 1/2 of their 2000 students called in sick the other day. They don't have any confirmed cases of H1N1 yet, but just a lot of sick students and staff.
So say Boo To The Flu and have a great day!
