A Note From The Nurse...
The school nurse has identified several cases of head lice within the past few weeks. Lice travels from person to person via head to head contact. They do not jump or fly. A person can get lice from sharing hats, clothes, brushes/combs, bedding, at sleepovers or even out in the community in places like movie theaters. Having head lice is NOT a reflection of a person’s cleanliness or hygiene. While children (and adults) can “get” lice a variety of ways, there are very specific ways that it must be treated in order for it to be eliminated. If you notice head lice in your child’s hair, you can contact your family doctor, pharmacist, or our school nurse for help and ways to treat it. There are also great online resources for treating head lice. For more information, check out these links. http://www.headfirstlicelessons.org/ http://www.cdc.gov/parasites/lice/head/index.html

Meet the Kindergarten Teachers -Mrs. Schierholz
Hi! I am Kimberly Schierholz and this is my 4th year teaching! I am currently attending Lindenwood University for my EDS in School Administration. I love teaching Kindergarten because I enjoy seeing the growth my students display not only academically, but as little citizens in our school as well. I enjoy seeing their smiles, hearing their laughter, and watching them learn!
