What is SunWise?
Our main focus is to protect the whole child, which includes but is not limited to, educating staff and students about the harsh effects of sun exposure AND physically protecting the students and families by constructing a shade structure in needed areas.
 

Don't Fry Day: May 24th, 2013

Don't Fry Day Logo
The Friday before Memorial Day is Don't Fry Day!
The National Council on Skin Cancer Prevention designated the Friday before Memorial Day as Don’t Fry Day. The Council’s goal is to encourage sun safety awareness by reminding everyone to protect their skin while enjoying the outdoors on Don't Fry Day and every day.
 
You can make a difference! Unprotected exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun during youth puts children at an increased lifetime risk for skin cancer. One or two blistering sunburns in childhood may double the lifetime risk of developing melanoma. Overexposure to the sun can also lead to eye damage and immune system suppression. By educating ourselves and our children about UV-related health effects and the steps for sun protection, we can ensure a healthy future for the next generation." -The EPA 2012

The Moffett PTA Sunwise Committee needs your help! Volunteers will be asked to support the committee in the following areas:
  • Organize educational activities that involve Moffett students and their families during the month of May and more specifically Don't FRY Day.
  • Continue to fundraise for much needed shade structures in the Moffett lunch area.
  • Communicate all SunWise needs through our awareness campaign for local corporations and businesses willing to donate items or money allocated solely for the shade structure project.
  • Assist with research & networking for the American Dermatologist Association grant writing process. This is an $8,000 grant that Moffett currently qualifies for that would greatly help fund the lunch area shade structure project.
