Parent Educator Update
With a new year, we try to set new goals to accomplish. With support we have a better chance in following through. If you are looking to set a new parenting goal, try setting limits. The January Parent Press article includes strategies and activities to try. A new year can also bring new stressors and emotions in our home. If you are noticing temper tantrums or emotional outbursts, our February Parent Press has ideas for how to help your child calm themselves. If you are needing support to follow through and be successful, feel free to reach out to Nichol Michels at Nichol.Michels@ahschools.us or (612) 444-1441.

Update from Nurse Michelle
Free Dental Sealant Opportunity for students in grades 1, 2 and 3 -Deadline to Register is February 7th, 2023
Hello Mississippi Families! We are partnering with Community Dental Care to provide Dental Sealants (if needed) and Dental Screenings at School at no cost to you. This program is available for students in grades 1, 2, and 3.
According to the Minnesota Department of Health dental sealants are the most effective and painless way to prevent and stop cavities in children. Community Dental Care is sending their team of professionals to our school on April 5th and 6th to apply dental sealants for students who wish to participate.
You may have noticed that your student brought home a consent form titled Community Dental Care's School Based Sealant Program on Friday, January 13th. Please complete this form as soon as possible. The deadline for this consent is February 7th, 2023. If you want your child to receive the dental sealants, please fill out the form completely and return it with your students. If you do not want your child to participate-please check no. Please turn in the consent form either way.
No payment is required for participating families, Minnesota Health Care Programs and other insurance plans will be billed as appropriate for preventative services. Any remaining costs after insurance will be covered by the program. We are very excited for this opportunity to protect our students from preventable dental disease and tooth decay. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
Thank you, Michelle Erickson, LSN Michelle.Erickson@ahschools.us
