Central Regional Honor Choir and Orff Ensemble

We had students participate in the Central Regional Honor Choir and Orff Ensemble last Saturday at the University of South Florida. These students auditioned in August and were chosen out of over 700 students. They had an all-day rehearsal with guest clinicians and a concert that night. Congratulations to the Honor Choir members, Adelina and Rylee; and to the Orff Ensemble members, Livi and Madeline!

Nurses Notes

Please update your RenWeb account with your contact information and include any nearby emergency contacts if possible. Occasionally we have to call from the office or clinic to have a student picked up if he/she is sick or has an injury. Furthermore, as a rule, we call parents/guardians to inform them if their student has bumped his/her head, no matter how minor the injury.

Reminder: All students must be “fever free” (no fever without Tylenol/Ibuprofen) and free from vomiting for at least 24 hours before coming to school/returning to school. Students must be picked up if they vomit at school or have a fever > 100 degrees.

Flu season is upon us…please remind your child to cover coughs and sneezes, to wash his/her hands, and to use hand sanitizer or hand wipes when handwashing is not possible. Moreover, you may wish to discuss the advisability of your child receiving the flu vaccine/nasal mist with your child’s doctor or nurse practitioner.

Save the Date!

O Blessed Joseph, faithful guardian of my Redeemer, Jesus Christ, protector of Mary, the virgin Mother of God, I choose you this day to be my special patron and advocate and I firmly resolve to honor you all the days of my life. Therefore I humbly ask you to receive me as your client, to instruct me in every doubt, to comfort me in every affliction, to obtain for me and for all the knowledge and love of the Heart of Jesus, and finally to defend and protect me at the hour of my death.

Amen
