A Word from Nurse Jennifer
It is important to keep our schools healthy and protect other students and staff. COVID 19 symptoms can mimic symptoms of other illnesses. If your child has a fever they need to stay home until they are fever free for 24 hours without the use of fever reducing medications. If your child has any of these symptoms, unexplained by another condition such as asthma, allergies, etc., please keep them home until symptom free for 24 hours without the use of medications that suppress or hide these symptoms:
Fever or chills
Cough (different from baseline with asthma)
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Muscle or body aches
New loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose
Nausea or vomiting
If your child does have these symptoms and they are worsening please seek your Physicians advice. There is no cure or medication to treat COVID 19. Treatment is rest, pushing fluids, and treating the symptoms. Testing is available in Concordia at the Family Care Center. Please call ahead and let them know you are wanting tested and they will give you directions on when and where to come in for testing. Routine testing is not done through the Emergency Room. Please call your Dr.’s office and they can give you direction.
Fall Picture Day!
5th Grade Goes to Starbase
Reminder - Students will need a sack lunch, and they must have their permission slips signed in order to go! If you would like CMS to provide a lunch for your student, please call the office to have that arranged!
The 6th grade students have PRIDE time at the end of each day. Here are the choices:
Archery: Do you love to fling arrows and compete against yourself and others? Maybe you have never shot bows and arrows before and would love to learn how? This would be the perfect class to take! We will be learning the art of archery through the NASP program, and practicing hands on every day! (Nutsch)
Hot Topics… What’s going on in the world? Want to keep up on the latest and greatest events that are happening currently? Hot Topics includes discussing current, interesting and fun events. We watch CNN 10 to get the latest news. We create“Caption It” projects where your imagination gets to run wild. We also present current events through videos we locate. It’s a great way to share a mass amount of interesting and fun news to everyone in a short time. We also create a Limited Edition newspaper for the Middle School. (James)
Origami: Do you enjoy transforming a basic piece of paper into a work of art? Origami is the art of folding and sculpting paper to create beautiful structures. Origami is good for you as it develops eye hand coordination, sequencing skills, spatial skills, memory, but also patience and attention skills. It allows you to develop fine motor skills and mental concentration. (Jackson)
Engineering and Robotics: We will complete different building/construction challenges using everyday materials as well as Lego Robotics. If you like building, taking apart, or putting things back together - this may be the class for you. (Stiles)
