Nurse Gina D'Aguanno's Area

The nurse's website can be found HERE.

Dear Parents/Guardians-

The PTA will be offering 100% fruit juice popsicles to students after the fun run. This is is line with our wellness policy for nutrition. If you DO NOT want your child to have one please notify me by this FRIDAY MARCH 16th.

Also, I am in need of boy and girl pants sizes 5 to 12 for students. Work out pants, leggings, swishy pants work best because they fit a variety of sizes. If you are cleaning out clothes and want to donate any to me I use them for students on a daily basis.

Thank you,

Nurse D'Agguano
