Welcome back TPS students and staff! We hope you had a great winter break.
Some of our students at West STEAM Center got the chance to learn CPR. They even learned the Stayin' Alive technique. Chest compressions should be given at a rate of about 120 per minute. The oft-heard advice that the beat of “Stayin’ Alive” by the Bee Gees provides a good metronome for hands-only CPR is still valid. Just proof that disco songs can help keep someone alive.
