Dear Parents –

Many of you ask about additional learning opportunities for your children. If you have not heard, we are hosting Camp Invention in our District this summer. Camp Invention is a fun, innovation and creativity based program that any student in my class will enjoy!

During the program, Campers in grades 1-6 explore the technology behind self-driving cars and create vehicles of the future, build their very own “smart” homes, design a mechanical robot dog and take home an Optibot, a robot that senses dark and light surfaces. See it in action here: Fast Forward

Our program is being taught by local teachers in our district, and will be held at Sabold Elementary School the week of June 25 - June 29.

You can save $25 by registering by TODAY March 23rd!

REGISTER SOON at http://campinvention.org/!!!

Please let me know if you have any questions, and I will happily put you in contact with the Director.

Nurse notes from Mrs. DiMaio

Please read the information below.


Nurse Reminders.docx


Healthy children make better learners

Please remember that if your child is feeling ill and had has a fever that they should not return to school until they are fever free for 24 hours following the last dose of Tylenol or Motrin. When diarrhea or vomiting happens, they should be home for 24 hours after the last episode or, at least, through one full school day. This will help to curtail the spread of illness. This winter we have seen already MANY students with Strep throat and the stomach virus.

TICKS

Beware Ticks!

Parents please be sure to always check your children for ticks. There are many websites dedicated to identifying ticks and what symptoms may occur with a bite.

If you find a tick on your child or yourself, remove it by using tweezers. Grab the tick close to the skin and pull away trying not to bend or twist it. Be sure there are no parts of the tick left in the skin. Cleanse the area with soap and water. You may want to save the tick by taping it to a piece of paper in case you need to identify it at a later time. You don’t need to take medicine or see a doctor unless you begin to have symptoms.

Tick bites are often harmless but ticks can cause allergic reactions and certain ticks can pass on diseases to humans and pets. Symptoms of tick borne disease could include: red spots or rashes at site, full body rash, stiff neck, nausea, weakness, chills, fever, swollen lymph nodes, muscle or joint pain. If you have any symptoms, contact your doctor.
