Music in our Schools Month
March is “Music In Our Schools Month”! The Pembroke Music Department will be presenting their annual All-Town concerts to help celebrate “Music In Our Schools Month”.
All-Choral Night, Monday, March 11th at 6:30 PM in the PHS Gym.
All-Band Night, Tuesday, March 12th at 6:30 PM in the PHS Gym. * Ticketed Event*
All-String Night, Thursday, March 14th at 6:30 in the PHS Auditorium
The concerts feature students in grades 4-12 who sing in school chorus or play an instrument in the band or orchestra to perform on the same concert program together. It is a wonderful opportunity for the students and their caregivers to see and hear the breadth of the music program.
*SPECIAL NOTE: Due to audience size capacity in the PHS gym and the number of band students in the district, the All-Band Night concert is a ticketed event. Each band student in grades 5-12 will be given 2 free tickets to the concert for their caregivers. Only audience members presenting these free tickets will be allowed in to view the concert. Band students will be receiving their tickets from their band teacher in class next week to bring home. We apologize in advance that seating is limited for the All-Band Concert.
Tickets are not necessary for the All-Choral Concert or the All-String concert.

Update from the School Nurse
Should They Stay or Should They Go? When School Children/Youth are Sick
Attendance is important – but your child should not come to school when too sick to learn or there is a risk of making others ill.
When you are questioning whether to send your child to school or not, please keep the following guidelines in mind:
Fever ~ A temperature greater than 100.0 is considered a fever. Your child should be fever-free without the use of fever-reducing medication for 24 hours before returning to school.
Vomiting and Diarrhea ~ Your child should be symptom-free for 24 hours before returning to school.
Rash ~ A rash is usually a sign of a viral illness. It may also be a reaction to a medication or chemical (plant, detergent). If your child has an unusual rash or it is associated with a fever, contact your doctor. Keep your child home until you have discussed the rash with your doctor.
Cold, sore throat, cough ~ Children average six to eight colds per year. Your child may attend school if there is no fever. If cold and cough symptoms are associated with a fever or they do not readily improve, call your doctor.
If your child has anything contagious (i.e. chickenpox, Fifth disease, strep throat, conjunctivitis, impetigo, MRSA, measles, pertussis, etc.), I need to know so we can take the necessary steps to prevent an outbreak.
If your child is being treated for an illness (pneumonia, bronchitis, ear infection, asthma), even if they don’t need medication at school, it is helpful for me to know, so I can provide the best care for them at school.
If your child has sustained an injury ask your healthcare provider when it is safe to return to school and physical activities (physical education and recess). Inform me so we can make the appropriate accommodations at school.
Children with allergies or asthma are often affected more seriously by respiratory infections and may need to see a healthcare provider.
We had a successful Pizza Bingo, thanks to all of the families who came. Over $1000 was raised!
