A Recess Note from Nurse G - Please Read
Your child’s health and safety is very important to us at Big Creek. The CDC and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta both encourage outside recess as a part of their health promotion and increased classroom concentration. Weather permitting, each class goes outside for 30 minutes of recess daily.
If your child has a chronic condition that would prevent them from participating in their usual class routine a physician’s note will be needed. When a physician’s note is received, stating a child may not participate in outdoor activities, please be mindful that would also include Field Day or any other outdoor class activities.
The form to be completed by your physician can be found on the Big Creek Elementary Web Page. Click on School Nurse under the Student Services Tab, then on the left hand side, click Health Forms. The needed form is titled Individualized Health Care Plan. Once the form is completed by you and your child’s physician, please send it in with your student.
I appreciate you taking your time to help me be able to give great care to your child. I look forward to seeing your student continue to thrive this year. Please feel free to call or email me if you have any questions or concerns.
The PTO Needs YOU!
There are two Vice President and one Recording Secretary positions that need to be filled for next school year. If you are interested in volunteering or know someone who is worthy of nomination, please complete this form by the end of the weekend. If you are interested, but need more information, please contact email@example.com

2019 Georgia Public Broadcasting PBS KIDS Writers Contest
It's time to sharpen those pencils! GPB invites Georgia students in kindergarten through third grade to create a great story, illustrate it, and enter it in our PBS KIDS Writers Contest.
The deadline for submissions is March 29, 2019.
Stories can be fact or fiction, poetry or prose, and will be judged on originality, creative expression, storytelling, and integration of illustrations. A first, second, and third place will be chosen from each grade level. Additionally, four stories (one from each grade level) will be selected for the STEAM Award if their story effectively incorporates science, technology, engineering, arts, and/or mathematics.
