FSD Math Interventionists Are Making A Difference!
Math Intervention is a program that provides additional support to improve students' math performance in number and operations and algebra and algebraic thinking. It is known as a "triple dip" program because these students receive three "dips" of math daily, once in a whole group setting, a second in a small group, and a third from a math interventionist. Intervention support is provided in a strategic setting. Several points of data are used to determine eligibility for the program, and this data, in turn, drives the instruction for each student. Progress monitoring is done to determine growth along the way. Students receive intervention until progress monitoring data reveals the student is no longer in need of math intervention, at which time the student will be exited from the program.

Thank Your School Nurse!
As we approach the end of another school year, we would like to take a moment to recognize the vital role that our school nurses play in the health and wellbeing of our students. May 10th is National Nurses Day. Our school nurses are not only responsible for providing basic medical care, but they also serve as leaders within our community to promote health and wellness.
Throughout the year, our school nurses organize a variety of events to raise awareness and educate students and families about important health issues. These events include blood drives, diabetes nights, and asthma awareness nights. They also coordinate the Upward Smiles mobile dentistry unit, which provides dental care to students who might not otherwise have access to it.
In addition to these events, our school nurses also provide important training in emergency preparedness. They conduct Stop the Bleed, CPR, and defibrillator training, which can be critical in saving lives in emergency situations.
Our school nurses are an essential part of the Health and Human Services Team in our district, and their work is crucial to the success and wellbeing of our students. They work closely with parents and guardians to ensure that each student's health needs are met and that they are able to thrive in the classroom and beyond.
As we look ahead to the next school year, we encourage all parents and guardians to take advantage of the resources provided by our school nurses. Whether it's attending one of their educational events, scheduling a dental appointment through the Upward Smiles program, or simply reaching out to them with any health concerns, our school nurses are here to support our students and families in any way they can.
Thank you to our school nurses and the entire Health and Human Services Team for their dedication and hard work throughout the year.
