Week of March 14:
March 15: Phrases of the Day:  “Success starts with believing in yourself.” And “If you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.”  When we believe we can do something, we have a much greater chance of being successful.
March 18: Phrase of the Day: “ Just because something is difficult doesn't mean you shouldn't try.  It means you should just try harder.”

2016-17 Calendar ​

Health Message - Important
From School Nurse, Rachel Higgins:
I've seen many children with nausea, vomiting and fevers this week. Please make sure that your child is symptom free before returning to school. Fever free means without the use of medication.
It is also important that you report any infections to the school nurse. If your child is diagnosed with a streptococcal infection, I need to be made aware. I have several children and families that I need to inform because of health issues.
Spring seems to have arrived early. If your child suffers from spring time allergies it is time to start their allergy medication if you haven't done so.
