Toys for Tots helps millions of less fortunate children enjoy the holidays through the generosity of those who are able to provide a gift.  To help support Toys for Tots, Solomon Plains Elementary held a dress down on Friday, December 7, 2018.  Faculty and staff were asked to bring in a new, unwrapped toy and/or a donation in exchange for being able to dress down for the day.   It was a huge success. Many children will be able to have a magical holiday due to Solomon's kindness and generosity.

Mrs. Mary Loughlin from the Epilepsy Foundation came to Solomon-Plains Elementary to inform the students about epilepsy.  She spoke about the different types of seizures, and the first aid steps to follow if someone has a seizure.  A seizure is a sudden rush of electrical activity in the brain.  One in twenty-six people will have a seizure in their lifetime.  This neurological disorder can affect anyone.  Mrs. Loughlin’s son, Michael, was twenty years old when he had his first seizure.  The students enjoyed learning how the brain works.
