A Note from Nurse Sandy:

Dear Winston Family,

Thanksgiving is a time when we reflect on facets of our lives for which we are grateful.

I am grateful for the opportunity I have had to work with children my entire career. Since 2006, I have been “Nurse Sandy” at Winston Campus Elementary. The job has been at times both challenging and rewarding. I have enjoyed watching your children grow up.

On December 3, I will be hanging up my stethoscope and moving on from my career in nursing. Thank you for trusting me with the health and well-being of your children. The children brought joy and a smile to my face every single day.
