Mercer Bears pep up Hubbard Elementary

Mercer Bears pep up Hubbard Elementary

On Friday, April 25, five Mercer Bears' basketball players visited Hubbard Elementary. During the pep rally, the students cheered about ways to get ready for the CRCT. The students were reminded to go to bed early and eat a good breakfast to be prepared for testing.

The Mercer Bears impressed students with their basketball skills and told students what areas they have chosen as their majors. The Hubbard Tigers greatly appreciate the time that the Mercer Men's Basketball team spent with us.

Spring Fling Day 30: First Aid Supplies

Spring Fling Day 30: First Aid Supplies

Go through your medicine cabinet or drawer as well as any first aid kits you may have. Fling any medications like first aid ointment that have expired and check the conditions of bandages and other items. There is nothing worse needing a band-aid and it has lost all of its sticky-ness. Make a note on your shopping list of any supplies you need to replace.

 

Now go flinging!  Please come back and tell me how many first aid supplies you were able to fling today.

Spring Fling Day 29: Hair Products

Look in your shower, on your bathroom counter and under your bathroom sink and go ahead and throw out those hair products (including shampoo and conditioner) that you are never going to finish using. Go ahead and admit that you are never going to use that spiking gel or strange smelling shampoo again! Dump it down the sink and then recycle the bottles

 

Now go flinging!  Please come back and tell me how many hair products you were able to fling today.

Spring Fling Day 28: Plastic Containers

Spring Fling Day 28: Plastic Containers

Pull out all of those Tupperware containers and old butter tubs. If they don’t have lids (or are missing the bottoms), they definitely should be flung. Decide how many you actually need and will reasonably use, keep the nicest ones and recycle the rest.


Now go flinging!  Please come back and tell me how many plastic containers you were able to fling today.
