We love this team building activity that our Acelero Learning Camden/Philadelphia colleagues engaged in during their recent in-service. Teachers were taught to expand on their creativity and painted mannequin heads, converting them into planters. The activity provided teachers an opportunity to reflect on themselves and also the role they play in nurturing children and expanding young minds.

"We like to do out-of-the-ordinary activities that bring us together. Ever since returning to our centers after the lockdown, we've been focused on building morale and being even more meaningful and intentional with team-building," said Zoraida Romero, Assistant Center Director at Big Germantown, which is located in Philadelphia, PA. "Just as we do with our classroom curriculum, we made modifications as needed so that each individual could work in the way that was best for them."

What a wonderful way to reflect and connect!

Make a Plan to Get Boosted Against COVID-19 this Fall
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) is urging Wisconsinites to make a plan to get boosted against COVID-19. People 12 years and older are now eligible to receive updated COVID-19 boosters (also known as bivalent boosters). Doses of the updated COVID-19 boosters have started arriving in Wisconsin and will continue to be delivered to providers over the next several weeks. Pharmacies, health centers, and clinics are expected to make appointments available as their booster doses arrive.

The updated boosters have received federal regulatory approval and are the first Omicron-specific vaccines to be made available in the United States. They target the original strain of COVID-19 as well as the BA.4 and BA.5 Omicron subvariants. The highly contagious BA.5 Omicron subvariant is the dominant strain of COVID-19, making up about 90% of cases nationally.

The updated boosters are recommended as a single (1) dose for people 12 years and older who have received their primary COVID-19 vaccine series and have not received a COVID-19 vaccine dose in the last two months. People 12 years of age and older are eligible to receive the updated Pfizer COVID-19 booster, and those 18 years of age and older are eligible to receive the updated Moderna COVID-19 booster. In these age groups, these boosters replace the original boosters. The Pfizer and Moderna updated boosters can be administered after any primary series, including Pfizer, Moderna, J&J, or Novavax.

Children ages 5-11 continue to be eligible for the original COVID-19 booster, which provides protection against the original strain of COVID-19. It is anticipated that this age group will be eligible for the updated boosters in the coming months.

Primary Series Information

Everyone 6 months and older is recommended to get vaccinated to protect against COVID-19. If you have not yet received your primary series of COVID-19 vaccines, it is never too late to get vaccinated. People 12 and older now have an additional option for getting their primary series, with the FDA authorization and CDC recommendation of the Novavax COVID-19 vaccine. The Novavax COVID-19 vaccine for unvaccinated people requires two doses separated by 3-8 weeks for full protection. Pfizer and Moderna continue to be available for primary series, and Johnson & Johnson is authorized for use in people over 18 who may not be able to take the other vaccines. Talk to a healthcare provider to learn which vaccine is right for you.

People can safely get their COVID-19 vaccines and other vaccines at the same time, including the annual flu vaccine.

COVID-19 Vaccines Available at No Cost

COVID-19 vaccines remain available to all Wisconsinites at no cost regardless of immigration or health insurance status. Anyone can schedule an appointment for the vaccine using a variety of options, including with their health care provider, at community-based vaccination clinics, local and tribal health departments, or pharmacies. Vaccination sites across Wisconsin may choose to provide vaccines to specific age groups. Individuals are encouraged to check with their local health clinics or visit vaccines.gov to find vaccination sites for specific age groups.

For free, confidential support finding health care and community resources near you, dial 211. For information, resources, and data related to Wisconsin’s COVID-19 vaccination program, visit the COVID-19 vaccine webpage. We encourage you to follow on Facebook, Twitter, or dhs.wi on Instagram for more information about COVID-19.

The COVID-19 Community Level is HIGH in Milwaukee.

When the COVID-19 Community Level is classified as High in the area surrounding our centers, the following criteria applies within our program:
Indoor activities and events must take place virtually, or be re-scheduled as in-person events once the COVID-19 community level returns to Medium or Low classification.
This is based on our AL Guidance for Creating Healthy and Safe Center Environments. This means our programs and staff need to wear a mask when around others and adhere to our guidance above.

Outside of our program, when the COVID-19 Community Level is classified as High in your home community: it is recommended that you wear a well-fitting mask when in public indoor settings, regardless of vaccination status.

The COVID-19 Community Level is MEDIUM in Racine

When the COVID-19 Community Level is classified at Medium in the areas surrounding our centers the following criteria applies within our program:
Indoor activities and events may take place in person. This is based on our AL Guidance for Creating Healthy and Safe Center Environments. This also means staff are not required to wear a mask if children or families are not present.

At all times, we encourage you to take the following actions to prevent the spread of COVID-19:
Know the COVID-19 Community Level where you live or are traveling to and follow the associated guidelines.
Stay up to date on your COVID-19 vaccines by getting all recommended vaccines and booster doses.
Get tested for COVID-19 if you have symptoms or were exposed to someone with COVID-19.

We hope to see you at our Capitol campus next Thursday, July 21 for Wellpoint's next Family Night, open to all families in the community!

There will be fantastic music, fun games, a variety of food trucks and delicious ice cream, obstacle courses and a chance to learn about Acelero Learning - Wisconsin's Head Start programs, strategies to cope with stress and more.
