Follow-up Story: Bassett Unified eighth-grade students slathered their hands with hand sanitizer before placing them inside a cardboard box. The students then peeked inside the box from an opening on the top and saw a special light illuminating the lingering germs on their palms and under their fingernails. The demonstration was presented by Bassett High’s Health Academy as part of a three-day career and technical education showcase that introduced Edgewood Academy, and Torch Middle and Bassett High school students to pathways in health care, business, engineering and education at the high school.
Bassett Unified will celebrate the opening of Flanner Child Development Center with a special ribbon-cutting ceremony and classroom tours of the newly renovated facility.
