EXTRA CLOTHES

With the inclement weather, please make sure that your students have a change of clothes in their backpacks.  We have very limited clothes in the nurse’s room.  Thank you for helping our little ones stay dry this Winter. 

DR SEUSS MATH & READING NIGHT

Dr. Seuss Math and Reading Night will be March 1st at 5:30 – 7:00pm.  There will be food, activities, free books and door prizes!  This will be a great family night, please join us.

BOX TOPS

Box tops will be collected from each classroom on the last Thursday of each month and the class that brings in the most each month will receive a popcorn party.  Please watch for some sheets being sent home for the students to put their cutout box tops on.  This makes things a lot easier for the box top coordinator when counting them to redeem.

 

BROWN’S WORLD

Next stop for Brown’s World testing on 2/23! Parents, please help your child study the maps, which will head home in early February. You can also find the maps at the link below. Thanks for helping your child foster a greater understanding about and appreciation for the world in which we live! 

And, if you are available to help test students on 2/23 from 9-noon, please send an email to christybezanson@gmail.com. Thank you!

FROM THE HEALTH ROOM

 

Flu activity is increasing in Washington and so are hospital visits for flu-like symptoms. Health officials want the public to urge anyone over 6 months of age who hasn't been vaccinated this year to get a flu shot now to protect themselves, and others.

Flu vaccine (flu shot) is now available across the state for everyone aged 6 months and older, including pregnant women. Flu shots are readily available at most pharmacy locations, clinics and from many other medical providers and locations.

Annual flu vaccination is the best method of prevention against illness, followed by covering your cough, proper hand washing and staying home from school or work when you are sick. The flu shot takes up to two weeks to provide full protection and is now available at pharmacies and clinic locations throughout the state.

All children in Washington receive vaccines at no cost through age 18. The provider may charge a fee to give the vaccine, called an administration fee. You can ask for this fee to be waived if you cannot afford it.

Protect yourself and your family by getting vaccinated as soon as possible, using proper respiratory etiquette and staying home when you are sick.
