Their message is fun and engaging, and Mark brings experts with him to do some wonderful presentations.

This week, they arrived with their big toothbrushes and other props at I PROMISE School where they worked with our third-graders. Kelly Hershberger, RDH (Registered Dental Hygienist),  taught students about oral health education.

Mr. Fairhurst said, "Kelly had a blast, and the kids were fun, engaged and really paid attention to what was going on. You must ask one of the teachers about the chocolate pudding! Every child took home a personal toothbrush, tube of toothpaste, dental floss, disclosing tablets (these turn the kids teeth blue and red depending on how well they do/don’t brush), a personal packet of hand soap from GOJO, fun work sheets and a tooth brushing calendar."

Mark tells us if the kids complete this 30-day calendar, they can use it for free admission into Akron’s Children’s Museum, Akron Zoo or the Pro Football HOF.

Now, how terrific is that!? Another great partner in education, Embracing Futures. We're grateful!
