A NOTE FROM THE NURSe
Please remember to collect your students medications from the nurses office on the last day of school.
We have gone over bike, roller skates, and scooter safety. Please remind your children to keep their helmets on anytime they are riding. We need to protect their still growing brains from any concussions.
We have talked all year about the importance of drinking water and staying hydrated. Remind them Mrs. Garofalo says drink water, it is the answer to everything!
