RWA Pays Visit To PS/MS 105

PS/MS 105 was happy to welcome Jeanne DuPont and Elizabeth Manclark from the Rockaway Waterfront Alliance for a ‘free water safety and dangers of rip currents’ workshop.

Sponsored by National Grid, RWA hosted a series of workshops for local schools in the Rockaways in support of NOAA’s Rip Current Awareness Week.

To increase awareness about the dangers of exposure to UV rays, kids had fun making UV bracelets that change color when exposed to the sun. They learned a lesson in science by adding sunscreen on the beads to show how long it takes for sunscreen to wear off.

Students and teachers enjoyed the water safety video on rip currents, the exhaustive explanation on the safety rules, and other valuable lifesaving information that will keep them and their families safe on the beach this summer.
