Parent-Pick-up Drop-off Reminder:

A NOTE FROM THE NURSE
It's that time of year when illnesses (influenza, stomach bugs, viruses) are going around in the community, so we need to be aware that we are taking the right precautions to protect our children and others around them. Here are a few reminders:
Please keep your child home if:
-They have a fever of 100.0 F or higher (WITHOUT the use of a fever reducer-Tylenol, ibuprofen, etc.) in the last 24 hours
-They have a contagious disease such as strep throat (and have not been on antibiotics for more than 24 hours)
-They have vomited or had diarrhea in the last 24 hours
-They are simply not feeling well
If you are giving your child medicine (Tylenol, ibuprofen, cough medicine) before school, they most likely are not well enough to make it through the school day, please keep them home.
HANDWASHING is the single most effective way to prevent the spread of infection. Hands should be washed before you eat, after you go to the restroom, after you cough or sneeze, and it is also a good idea to wash your hands when you come home from school. Please remind your child about this healthy habit.
It is NOT too late to get a flu shot. Most convenient care clinics and the health department can provide this without an appointment. If you are unsure where to go, please email me and I can provide some options that work best for your family. firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any questions about whether to send your child to school or not, please feel free to call me. Stay healthy!

If you didn't get a chance to join us for the "postponed snow-day" assembly this week, you missed a good one! Ms. Mathys' class acted out an approach that they are using in their class to show collaboration. One of our fifth graders, Henry Goertz, showed the coolest card trick that had us all mesmerized. Several students recommended the most recent "good reads" in the library. Owen Brauer, a third grade student, shared an piece of writing that he himself wrote about Martin Luther King Jr.
Following the assembly, we had "Families" where our students completed a survey (older students helped our younger ones) about how they feel about CES. We will review the results, looking for any trends, positive or negative.
The Rockwood School District Fine Arts Department leads a program called, "Little Thinkers Theatre" in which Elementary students are encouraged to submit original stories to the High School Theatre teachers who select the very best, "translating" the story into a theater production. This year, the teachers were overwhelmed by the number and the quality of the entries. It is truly an honor to have your story chosen and we are thrilled to share the winners from CES this year. Congrats to:
- Bailee Mahone (Mitzy Baker - teacher)
- Emilia Golfo (Melissa Fehr - teacher)
- Lydia Helgerson and Savannah Dean (Mitzy Baker - teacher)
- Guatam Iyer and Jake Limburg (Mitzy Baker - teacher)
Stay Warm and enjoy the Game!
