Health reminder from Nurse Hager:

Dear Cadott Families,

The numbers continue to increase at the elementary school of sick children. We are doing everything we can to try to prevent the spread of illness, but we need parents help too!

Please keep your kids home when they are sick.

They NEED to be FEVER FREE for 24 HOURS (without Ibuprofen/Tylenol) before they return to school.

If they have diarrhea and/or vomiting they need to be home for 24 hours following the last time they throw up or have diarrhea.

We have many students that come to school after taking Ibuprofen/Tylenol because they are feeling better and don't have a fever (this is because of the medication) They are still very contagious!

If your child has been diagnosed with Influenza A or B we are seeing it take upwards of 5 days until they are feeling better. They must be fever free for 24 hours (without ibuprofen or tylenol) before they return to school.

When in doubt please contact me with questions about if your child/children should be in school before you send them. Thank you!

-Nurse Hager

Recognizing Positive Behavior - The Power of Attention means "What we focus on we get more of"

Cadott Elementary Staff recognizes the importance to applaud students when they display positive character traits. This week we would like to recognize:

Miss Schilling recognized Wyatt for being a respectful friend to others in the classroom. Wyatt can always be counted on to do his job.

Mrs. Alexander recognized Clara for positive behavior. Clara's smile is like a ray of sunshine. She demonstrates a strong level of self awareness, and leads others to encourage positive behaviors. She is kind, caring, and considerate!

Mrs. Alexander recognized Michael for positive behavior. When Michael mistakenly discarded something that belonged to another student, he admitted the mistake and apologized to the student. His high level of integrity is always evident.

Mrs. Alexander recognized Ally for helping another student manage their emotions during a difficult situation. Ally's kindness and empathy helped calm the student.

Mr. Holtz recognized Kellen for an amazing job transitioning back to school after vacation. He has put forth a great effort, has been respectful to his peers, and he has inspired others to be engaged in class discussions.

Miss McVey recognized Allie for being a sweet girl who enjoys playing with everyone. She is always coming up with ways to include others.

Mrs. McVey recognized Rosalee for being helpful and kind to others. She will often pick up things off the floor to be helpful.

Miss McVey recognized Allie for being a sweet girl who enjoys playing with everyone. She is always coming up with ways to include others.

Mrs. Spilde recognized Hailey for her kind and caring heart. She is always eager and willing to lend a helping hand to her classmates, teachers, or anyone in need.
