An Update on the Science Club
This Tuesday was the first meeting of our Science Club with Mrs. Snelling and Mrs. Thibodeau. Thank you to our parents for being prompt in picking up your child. Our future “scientists” are excited to begin working on their STEM fair projects and we are so pleased to be able to offer them support to make their STEM projects as successful as possible. If your child is interested in STEM Fair, please email our fair coordinator, Megan Thibodeau. She and Jarah Snelling are also running the Science club together to help support those students actively working on their STEM fair projects. Thanks to these ladies for their hard work!
Battling the Flu Bug
As you have probably read in the news, Pierce County is experiencing a very high occurrence of flu. You can help prevent the spread of flu by reinforcing good hand washing habits with your kids and by keeping your kids home when they exhibit signs of flu such as fever. District guidelines state kids must be fever free for 24 hours without medication and without physical stomach symptoms for 24 hours. Our Staff is vigilant in wiping surfaces each day.
Thank you for calling in absences in first thing in the morning, it is a huge time saver for our office.
Parent Pep Talk Series
THE MENTAL SKILLS YOUR CHILD NEEDS TO SUCCEED IN SCHOOL AND IN LIFE is a series of Parent Pep Talk presentations to assist families in their quest to raise well-rounded, socially capable, motivated, and compassionate world citizens. Topics include:
