Flanders December News
From The Desk Of Mr. Coakley
Flanders will again be raffling different Holiday baskets at this year’s Winter Concert. You may purchase tickets outside the office from the reading teachers or at the concert for $1.00 a ticket or $5.00 for 10 tickets. All proceeds will go toward Flanders PBIS.
I would like to congratulate Patty Croteau, Flanders and St. Joe's Art educator, for her nomination for Rotary teacher of the year! It is a well deserved honor. Congratulations from your Flanders family.
This time of year is an exciting time for everyone. We look forward to seeing you at one of the many events planned this month. Have a safe and happy holiday season. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call.
Flanders would like to give a great big thank you to Maplefields of Malone for honoring us in their Educational Alliance program. The grant we received will be applied to our math and science programs, which will benefit our students.
Nosebleeds: If your child suffers from winter nosebleeds it may be from dry air. Try using a cold air humidifier in the child's room at night. Petroleum just inside the opening of the nose may help too.
Flu season is upon us. Symptoms may include fever, headache, extreme tiredness, dry cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, and muscle aches. The top 5 most contaminated areas in the home are: 1.Telephones (have you cleaned your cell phone lately), 2. Appliances such as the refrigerator and microwave, 3. Faucets, 4. Light switches and door handles, and 5. TV remote. Remember to teach your children to get plenty of rest and exercise to help boost their immunity to fight the effects of colds and flu, wash their hands frequently and do the "elbow' cough. Enjoy a healthy holiday season!
