Your students will participate in the smoking demonstration today. There is a possibility they may smell a little like smoke. Be advised this demo was done outside and out of reach of the students but within sight. They were shown the staining effects of cigarette smoke and allowed to smell the cotton balls (if they wanted) to show the smell of smoke in the clothes, home, and/or car. Every precaution was taken to ensure the safety of your student during this demonstration.
