Austin Road Elementary PTO and SEPTO held their annual “Color Run” fundraiser at the school last month to raise money for SEPTO (Special Education PTO) and
for numerous activities and programs for the students.

In one of the most colorful fundraisers imaginable, the students ran through a premade course. Spread throughout the course were stations containing buckets of colored
powder. As the kids passed each station (a di erent color at each one), teachers threw the colored powder on them. At the end of the race, the kids looked like a big rainbow
swirl! e students had to raise a certain amount of money for the cause to partake in the Color Run.

Wildman discusses the research performed by the fifth-grade Austin Road students. Special project

anks to a special project that could someday become a pilot pro-
gram in schools statewide, some Austin Road Elementary students
are now o cially authors and might even know a little more about
American history than you do.

e fth-graders are students of Alice Shaughnessy and Mary Jean
Cerbini, who bring a special twist to the teaching of history in what’s
dubbed “ e Cerbini Project.”

Earlier this year, Cerbini teamed with Don Wildman, host of the
Travel Channel’s iconic hit show, “Mysteries at the Museum,” to
bring history, and the museums that contain it, to life for the young

“I came up with an idea where museums and classes should work
together,” said Cerbini. She met Wildman through her son, a sound
engineer on Wildman’s TV show.

Cerbini sent Wildman an email laying out her idea, then Wildman
took it a step farther. He and Cerbini took a trip to the New York
State Museum in Albany and met with its historian and curators

“ ey took us in the archives and showed us di erent artifacts from
the Revolutionary War period,” Cerbini said. “We then chose ve ar-
tifacts that my students would research.”

Cerbini said they focused on the Colonial Era artifact and asked
for items that were particular to this region, including items relating

chances for injury if hikers are not cautious. Perhaps
surprisingly, one of the most prevalent hiking-related
injuries also is one of the smallest. Blisters can sideline
hikers and even lead to infection if allowed to fester.

e Victoria State Government’s Better Health
Channel states that a blister is a small pocket of uid in
the upper skin layers and is a common response to in-
jury or friction. Blisters can be lled with serum, plasma,
blood, or pus, depending on how and where they form,
states Medical News Today. e purpose of a blister is
to protect and cushion the layers of skin below the epi-
dermis and to stop further damage to allow the tissue
time to heal.

Despite the temptation to pop blisters, it is best to
leave them intact to protect against infection in the un-
derlying skin areas. Preventing blisters from forming al-
lows hikers to enjoy comfortable hikes again and again.

According to Podiatry Today, high skin tempera-
ture and sweat exacerbate friction that can increase the
chances of developing a blister. erefore, choose socks
that will wick away moisture, such as those made from
wool or other breathable materials, rather than cotton.
A study conducted at the University of Missouri-Co-
lumbia found that people who wear all-cotton socks are
more likely to form blisters. Foot powders can dry out
moisture even further and prevent the wrinkled, pruned
skin that will easily chafe.

Another way to prevent blisters is to reduce the
