Nurse’s Corner-April  2018

There is so much to tell you about!

-We will start the Mileage Club April 10th and it will last until May 10th. The Mileage Club is a program where the students walk/run around a “track” on the playground at morning and lunch recess. 4 laps equal one mile. As the miles accrue, students will receive a toe token for every 5 miles they go.  Last year we had many kids make the marathon (26.2 miles) level! Amazing! And that all happens because of our wonderful Magic Markers-students and staff that stand and mark the mileage cards all recess.

-The Safe Kids Fair is coming up Saturday April 28th at Homer High School from 10am-2pm. Bike Rodeo and many informational booths. Fun for all!

-This is a friendly reminder to check your child’s head for lice regularly. Lice do not live in the school but can be passed from person to person with direct head to head contact. Lice are around all year.
