Spreading Titan Love this Valentine's Day
Every year as a campus we come together around Valentine's Day and "Spread Titan Love" for a school-wide service project. This year we are going to be partnering with Dell Children's Hospital. They are in need of stuffed animals! When a sick child checks into Dell, the hospital gives them a stuffed animal to comfort them along their journey of treatment. We will be collecting new, average sized stuffed animals in the main hallway for the next two weeks! (Feb. 4th-15th). The stuffed animal should be able to fit into your child's backpack. Each child who donates a stuffed animal will receive a heart sticker to show that they helped "Spread Titan Love."
Thank you for your support in our yearly school wide service project.

Reminders from Nurse Jenny
Cold and flu season are here. Please remember that if students have a temperature they need to stay home until they have been fever free for 24 hours without any medication. That policy also includes if they have been vomiting or if they have diarrhea. Please encourage hand washing!
It is a good practice to check your student regularly for lice. If you are not sure how to do that the following link has a lot of helpful information
Please report to the nurse if your student has the flu, strep, a fever or lice. All information is kept confidential.
