Dunbar Primary Student Wellness Fair

Dunbar Primary Student Wellness Fair in Lufkin Rocks!

At the Science Fair

Nothing is better than experiencing science live! Last Friday, March 9th, 2018, staff from CHI St. Luke’s Health – Memorial enjoyed teaching kids from the Dunbar Primary School in Lufkin, Texas through science!  How did this happen?  Well, it was not one, but two fun stations that were sponsored to teach kids valuable health and prevention tips they can treasure for a lifetime.

What Did The Children Learn?

Station 1

At the Dunbar Primary Student Wellness Fair, Station 1 was a hand washing training station where students learned how to properly wash their hands. The children rubbed a safe liquid on their hands and placed them under a black light. This revealed that on the surface our hands appear clean. However, germs are everywhere. After properly washing the hands for 15 seconds, students returned to the black light to observe their hands were “clean.” This was a demonstration stressing the importance of proper hand washing.

THE CHILDREN LEARNED

If you don’t clean your hands properly, you risk having harmful germs on your hands and spreading them to others!  Learn to wash your hands correctly and frequently to avoid the spread of yucky germs!

Station 2

Now it’s time for Station number two.  At the Dunbar Primary Student Wellness Fair, students practiced staying calm and calling 911 individually on the large keypad board display, without forgetting to press the “Call” button to actually place the call. This is a step that children often forget. Children also have an issue knowing how to get into the phone app to reach the keypad.

 

After this exercise students learned about several medical instruments, such as the stethoscope and what they are used for and when. By the end of the session, they were able to identify each and know their proper function and use. They easily identified toy versions that would light up or mimic the results of the professional instruments. For example, the toy stethoscope would light up and mimic a heartbeat. Instruments covered were the X-Ray machine, stethoscope, ear thermometer, and syringe.

THE CHILDREN LEARNED

 

A bunch of cool stuff!  Not only did they learn how to dial 911 but they also learned about various medical instruments.  The super cool kids enjoyed taking X-Rays of their hands and giving us all shots! Ultimately they know the doctor is not scary, and we simply go there to receive treatment to become well.

Friendly ER Visit to Another Pumpkin Patch Preschool

Smiles & Cheer at Another Pumpkin Patch Preschool

Our Staff & Health Bear Were Thrilled to Entertain Another Pumpkin Patch Preschool!

Last Friday, March 9th, 2018 was a treat for many adorable preschoolers and their teachers at Another Pumpkin Patch Preschool.  It was a day filled with smiles and lessons learned. The daycare and preschool in Huntington, Texas whose motto is, “Learn and Grow Together” received a special treat!  The staff from CHI St. Luke’s Health Emergency Center and their life size Teddy Bear entertained the children with story time.  It is natural for both adults and little ones to be afraid of a trip to the doctor.  However, in the event of an emergency, it’s important that they learn that a trip to the ER is a good thing.  At CHI St. Luke’s Health Emergency Center, we are here to help take care of their “ouches” and “boo-boo’s” as fast as possible.

Highlights from our Visit to Another Pumpkin Patch Preschool!

Fun Times at Another Pumpkin Patch Preschool: Photo Gallery

Happy children, teddy bears and lots of hugs!  The children learned all about a trip to the ER and each took home a mini version of the CHI Teddy Bear to ease their fears of the ER and hospital. We really enjoyed the kids of Another Pumpkin Patch Preschool and hope they take home their lessons learned.

An Incredible Way to Close Summer

Three Hours Packed with Excitement at the Back to School Fest Lumberton 2017

The day was a pure delight! How we managed to pack so many fun activities in three hours is sincerely incredible. We started the event with door prizes for our guests full of school supplies, donated by Altus Emergency, Boogie & Tootsie’s Deli and Neches Federal Credit Union. We had Extreme Bouncers and Slides bring out a bounce house and a water slide for kids to enjoy. This was a big hit with the younger kids!

That was just the tip of the iceberg… Other exciting activities at the Back to School Fest Lumberton 2017 included: a rock painting station, cotton candy station, free snow cones from Kona Ice, a face painter, the Lumberton Police, Fire and Swat team and two photo booths with live DJ Rayman playing music. Additionally, we had local vendors come out and provide services and giveaways for the people attending: Christy Boudreaux DDS, Lumberton Chamber of Commerce, Sprint Print, Girl Scouts, Cricket Wireless, Fuller Options, Chiropractor Ana Bumstead, MET Head Start, Sassy Southern Salon and Boutique, Crestwood Baptist Church, and Julie Rodgers Gift of Life.

Back to School Bonanza 2017

Back to School Bonanza Highlights

7th Annual Back to School Bonanza Was a Hit! An Estimated 3,200 Backpacks Given to School Aged Children

 

Saturday, August 12th left many children happy after their visit to the 7th Annual Back to School Bonanza.

Back-to-School-Bonanza

This was the seventh year that the  Junior League of Lufkin
hosted this free event for Angelina county school aged children together with churches, businesses and service organizations.  The event was held from 8 am – 2 pm at the Pitser Garrison Convention Center. Both parents and children poured in to take advantage of the freebies to help kiddos get ready to go back to school among those: free backpacks, school supplies, health kits, school uniforms, new tennis shoes, haircuts, dental checks, and much more.  Children from the Lufkin area will be able to return back to classes well prepared to tackle the happy opportunities of school. 

A PRODUCTIVE EVENT FOR ALL

Enjoy some of the highlights from the Back to School Bonanza

A Happy Joint Venture in Community Outreach

The Tools for a Successful Start

The Back to School Bonanza is essential in supplying children with the necessary tools to enter school with a good self esteem which is instrumental in successfully undertaking the challenges of school, fitting in and constructing the foundation for a bright future.

Junior-League-of-Lufkins-4th-Annual-Back-to-School-Bonanza

Highly active in the Lufkin community, CHI St. Luke’s Health Memorial ER participated in the Back to School Bonanza by giving out information about health, safety and prevention.  “There was a great turnout we had steady traffic throughout the entire event.” Parents and students from the Lufkin area attended. Pre-registered students were in line since 3 am Saturday morning.

It was great to see so many smiling faces with their families preparing for the new school year. – Lauren Frazier, MBA Lufkin Administrator

Several kids went home feeling safe and sound with their new Eddie Rescue teddy bear.  These mini replicas of the real life Eddie Rescue from CHI St. Luke’s Health Memorial Emergency Center were given out as gifts during the event.  We hope that they will serve to help remind both parents and children that life is precious.  During a medical emergency, there is no time to waste.  There is an option that involves short wait times versus hours.  At CHI St. Luke’s Health Memorial Emergency Center, we are always open, always ready and always fast when caring for your loved ones.  Visit our Facebook or Instagram pages to stay up to date with our Lufkin Community activity participation, safety tips and great photos.
