From the School Nurse..

I just want to say Thank you to all of the parents who assisted with health screenings this year. I appreciate our assistance with getting heights, weights, & general crowd control. Screenings would not go as smoothly without you. I look forward to the PTO parent assistance again next year. If you haven't done it before, why not give it a try?
I would like to thank the parents who kindly supplied me with some elastic waist shorts, pants, leggings, & shirts for me to keep here in the nurse's office for emergency clothing changes. I appreciate your support. Right now, I am fully stocked but, will let you know if my supply runs low. This far, kids have been good about washing & returning them.
