What does it take to get started?
A few students who are “hand aware” of how valuable NOT touching the T Zone and regular hand washing is in the prevention of the spread of disease: before eating, after recess, entering school, after the bathroom and more frequently when illness incidence increases at school.
Identify an interested teacher to be the club sponsor. Fridays become T-shirt day and Demonstration day (respiratory etiquette and germ potion demos) for the student body and teach to the elementary students.
Hint: Have a Fun-Raiser to be able to purchase T-shirts and one School Kit, which provides most of the elements of the Program. The rest is your enthusiasm and promotion of utilizing existing supplies (soap, sanitizers, water and paper towels) that should already in ample supply at your school. If not, cause a stir! It is difficult to complete a task without the correct Tools!
