    It's time to start getting the senior slideshow together. We need 3 pictures from birth to middle school. If possible, we would like digital copies because that makes things a lot easier. If you only have hard copies, label your pictures with your name and put them in a sealed baggie. We will return the pictures. Please get the pictures to Mrs. Bee or Mr. Shelly by Friday, May 6th. Of course, the sooner the better! :)

    Flowers from the senior fundraiser will be delivered Monday, May 2nd.

    Nurse Updates

    Nurse’s Notes


    Cindy Saathoff RN, BSN

    May is allergy and asthma awareness month. An allergy is an abnormally high-sensitive reaction to an everyday harmless substance. The most common allergens include pollen, molds, insect stings, dust mites, animal dander, foods, medications, and insect droppings. When this sensitivity occurs the body releases histamine, which can cause allergy symptoms such as watery eyes, itching, sneezing, or runny nose.

    Asthma is a disease of the lungs in which airways become blocked or narrowed causing difficulty breathing. Allergens, smoke, respiratory infections, exercise, changes in weather and even expressing strong emotion can all trigger an asthma attack. If you have asthma it is important to keep track of the triggers that you know provoke an attack. Follow up with your primary care physician as needed.
