From the Principal

Thank you so much to all of the parents that volunteered and donated to our LAMPE day. We had amazing weather and the students had such a great time. We couldn't have done it without you!


Our 5th graders had a great day at Gray Willows today in celebration of their last day in elementary school! It was so nice for them to experience so much fun on their last day of 5th grade. Thank you to all of the parents that organized their week, volunteered their time, and donated items so that our 5th graders could have such a special day!


I cannot believe we are at the end of the 22-23 school year. I know we are all ready for a little relaxation and summer fun! I am looking forward to my beach vacation, Taylor Swift and some downtime.


While I will provide occasional updates over the summer, this is the last regular Friday eNews of the school year. Our office is open during the summer, but it is much quieter with only myself and Mrs. Burke here. If you are planning on stopping by, please call first to ensure one of us is available.


Have a great long weekend and a wonderful summer!

Congratulations to 4th Grader Anthony Beltran-Silva

Yesterday morning Mrs. Holmer's 4th grade class had a great surprise in finding out that their classmate, Anthony, won the Nick DeMarco Award from Bernie's Book Bank. This award had over 180 students nominated, with only 20 recipients across the state. It is Anthony's consistent display of kindness, teamwork, and integrity that won him this special award. Congratulations, Anthony!

Summer Learning Opportunities

Interested in continuing your child's learning over the summer? Below you will find flyers for both iReady and Zearn with directions for summer access.

From the Nurse - MEDICAL FORMS AND MEDICATION

Dear Parents,

It’s hard to believe there are only a few weeks of school left. This is a reminder that you will need to come to school to pick up your child's medication by the last day of school, Friday, May 26th. Medications that are not picked up at the end of the year will be disposed of according to the D303 policy. This policy also does not allow medication to remain in the health office over the summer for reuse in the fall. Medication must be picked up by a parent or adult designee with the parent’s permission.


Looking ahead to the 2023-2024 school year, if your child requires medication or any action plans, your child will need new physician orders and action plans for the school year. Forms can be found under health services on the D303 site or linked directly here:


MEDICATION AUTHORIZATION

ASTHMA

LIFE THREATENING ALLERGIES

DIABETES


All incoming kindergarten students must present a record of a Complete Health Examination (physical exam) with all required immunizations prior to the 1st day of school.

Students entering into kindergarten or 2nd grade will need a dental examination and form completed within 18 months of May 15th, 2024. Current 2nd grade students require a dental examination and form completed within 18 months of May 15th, 2023. A vision examination and form is also required for incoming kindergarten students.


DENTAL FORM

VISION FORM

PHYSICAL EXAMINATION


These forms can be submitted to the main office or emailed to the school nurse at donna.holloway@d303.org. Please reach out if you have any questions. The health office direct line is 331-228-2304


Thank you and have a Wonderful Summer!

Ferson Creek Health Office Nurse,

Donna Holloway
