Church Parking Spots

As we have many new families and those returning may need a reminder.....

Please don't park in the 2 spaces in the parking lot that have the posts wrapped with striped tape. Those 2 spots are the church parking spaces. Reverend Jones would sure appreciate it.

HealthWise with Nurse Jan

September is the month for national awareness of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and Awareness. Many of us are surprised to learn that every glass of alcohol does have an effect on the unborn child; sometimes it becomes life altering.


As supportive parents and a strong school community, let's take this month and help share the information we have gained about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD). Knowledge is power and enables people to make choices that benefit them and their families.


I am attaching two flyers for you to view. One is for a free MOVIE Night called "Moment to Moment: Teens Growing Up With FASD" that will be shown at the Anchorage Museum on Sep 5th to educate the public. The other one is for the a Support Group for families effected by FASD - the first meeting is Sep 9th. Their theme is: "Bad days/Good days, We get it. We can help."


Please see me with any questions pertaining to FASD or to obtain additional information.
