The Raider Lead
February 2023 Edition
Welcome to "The Raider Lead" Newsletter
A Message from the Principal
Hello, Raider Family,
Welcome to the February edition of the Raider Lead school newsletter! We are excited to share our learning and leadership with you and prepare you for our big rocks this month.
We will be studying Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw. Sharpen the Saw® is about balanced renewal in all four dimensions of human need: body, mind, heart, and spirit. As we renew ourselves in these four areas, we create growth and change in our lives. To Sharpen the Saw, spend time each day in a routine way renewing body, mind, heart, and spirit. This Daily Private Victory increases our capacity to produce and handle the challenges around us. You can learn more about Habit 7 below by exploring our Home Habit Huddle activity with your family.
We will be celebrating Black History Month and Bus Driver Appreciation Week. This month also closes out basketball, and academic challenge. All of our monthly activities are listed below. Make sure you review the BIG ROCKS calendar below for all the details!
Let's practice habit 7 this month as we partner together to be amazing Raiders!
Inspiring life-ready leaders!

Raider RN Report
Happy February, Raiders!
We now have the combination swab for COVID and Flu A/B. This works the same way our COVID testing did, but now one swab will test for both COVID and FLU. Just like before, we have to have consents signed. I have attached the new consent form below. You can complete it and email it back to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are still working towards being able to provideTelehealth thru McLeod Hospital. We will be able to do a visit with a provider for simple complaints here in the nurse's office just like if you walked into an Urgent Care. We have special equipment that will allow for the provider to see your child, listen to their lung sounds, look into their ears and look at their throats. We are very excited about this and hope this will help decrease stress of having a sick child all while getting them well and back to school sooner. If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please complete the attached forms and email it back to me at email@example.com. We will never have your child seen without notifying you first, and there is the option for you to be present in person or via a virtual link. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at any time.
Thank you for allowing us to take care of your child. Please feel free to contact one of us with any questions or concerns.
Sincerely your school Nurses,
Mary Alice Faulkenberry,RN

Attendance is Crucial to Student Success!
Monthly Average for Absences in December
Our yearly average for absences was 9% for 2021-2022. We need to significantly reduce this percentage for the 2022-2023 school year. Research shows that students who are chronically absent from school perform much lower academically than their peers. Student attendance is critically important to student academic achievement. Please make every effort to ensure that your student(s) are at school on time each day ready to learn!
In January, our average for absences was 7%. There was a decrease from December! Let's try to continue to move this number down in February
