Counselor's Couch...

Happy New Year! We are glad to see all of our Vikings back at school and working hard after the break. This month, our character trait is citizenship. We will focus on digital citizenship and the students will participate in mini-lessons created by our technology department. These lessons will begin next week. In other news, we will extend our blanket drive through January. New or gently used blankets may be dropped off to the front office. Please label blankets with the grade level, because the grade level with the most donated blankets will win a pajama day. For 8th graders, the PSAT scores have been posted, and you should be receiving information regarding scores in the mail very soon from the College Board. We will also work with students to set up accounts with the College Board this spring.

Campus PD schedule will be sent out next week....

Allergies, Colds & Flu Season Reminders


  • Check with your doctor about the flu shot (or nasal spray form)
  • Germs live in noses and mouths. Avoid touching them without a tissue
  • Cough and sneeze into your elbow, not your hand.
  • Don’t share any drinks or food
  • Don’t eat lots of sweets (sodas, desserts, candy.) They put your immune system to sleep!
  • Wash your hands often… good washing takes about 15 seconds (hum the birthday song)
  • Eat lots of fresh fruits and veggies to build a germ fighting immune system.
  • Get plenty of rest - our bodies heal themselves when we sleep


  • There is medicine for the flu if you see your doctor within 48 hours of the start of symptom (high fever, headache, dry cough, muscle aches, fatigue.)
  • Treat the aches and fever with Tylenol/Acetaminophen
  • Never use Aspirin for children under 18 (because of the risk of Reyes Syndrome)
  • Drink plenty of liquids to prevent dehydration and speed recovery
  • Prevent spreading : Stay home from work or school until your temperature is below 100 degrees for 24 hours (without using medicine to lower it! )

Let’s all have the healthiest season ever!
