Throughout the month of April, fourth graders at all four Milton elementary schools learned about healthy forests and the growing prob­lem of Lyme Disease in our community. Students saw live ticks in petri dishes and learned the steps they could take to help prevent Lyme disease.  As part of the “Go Out and Play; Check Everyday” program, students developed posters like these to help others reduce their risk of Lyme disease.

Many thanks to Milton Public Schools teachers and administrators – and to the students who created such great posters!  Look for them at the schools, library and Police Station.
