January Staff Member of the Month

Thank you to all who nominated a staff member this month! We had about 200 entries to help celebrate our amazing staff at the Greene School. Our winner, Mr. McLean, was nominated by two different students. They said Mr. McLean, "helps you with anything you need. He also pushes us to be the best we could and I think that makes him an amazing teacher." In the classroom he helps students learn because he, "understands levels of interest on different topics and makes everyone excited about what we are doing. He understands where everyone is in understanding on topics so I very rarely re-learn stuff in his class."


Thank you Mr. McLean!


If you are interested in honoring one of our staff members please take a couple of minutes to complete the Staff Member of the Month Form!

Shhhhhhhhhh..................

Past students and parents of Mrs. Sarah Sheblessy (second grade teacher at Blue Ash Elementary), can you believe Mrs. Sheblessy will be retiring at the end of this school year?


We would love your help in giving her a final present of writing a thank you note for being a wonderful teacher and mentor. We are also requesting photo submissions of you with Mrs. Sheblessy during your teaching/learning experience with her.


Please turn in your notes and/or pictures in one of the following ways. A) Turn in to the main office at your school by Friday, March 10th. B) Email your letter and/or digital or scanned picture to Michelle Shade (email below) by Friday, March 10th. This will give us enough time to assemble a nice book for Mrs. Sheblessy. Remember, this is a SURPRISE!


Thank you for your help.

Nurse's Corner: Staying Healthy!

This is the season for runny noses, coughs and sore throats. Please remember that if your child has an elevated temperature (above 100.4), s/he must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.


Also, comfort measures go a long way! Try sending a water bottle with your student to help with fluid intake, pack a honey stick in their lunch for sore throats. If you feel that s/he needs more than this, such as an over the counter pain reliever or cough drops, please bring the medication with a medication administration order signed by the parent and a doctor.


Thank you, and feel free to call the nurse's office with any questions!
