Students are encouraged to bring a sack lunch. Parents are invited to attend a ceremony at 4:35. The registration deadline is Thursday, March 5.

Over 650,000 adolescent babysitters have graduated from the medically-accurate

injuries can happen so they can be prevented. The cost of the course is $20.

The up-to-date curriculum provides hands-on practice in lifesaving techniques designed to prepare babysitters to act in an emergency.

They also learn basic first aid as well as how to perform infant and child choking rescue.
