  • Red Ribbon Week 2017

    red ribbon week


    I would like to thank everyone for their support during Red Ribbon Week.  This year’s theme was “REAL HEROES DON’T DO DRUGS”.   We want to encourage our students to be healthy and stay DRUG FREE.  Below are 10 Quick Steps for PARENTING FOR PREVENTION:


    1. Talk with your child about alcohol and other drugs.
    2. Learn to really listen to your child.
    3. Help your child feel good about him/herself.
    4. Help your child develop strong values.
    5. Be a good role model.
    6. Help your child deal with peer pressure.
    7. Make family rules.
    8. Encourage healthy and creative activities.
    9. Team up with other parents.
    10. Know what to do if you suspect a problem.

    Warm Regards,

    Sharon Bond, School Counselor

  • Nurse’s News




    As a School Nurse, I have been busy reviewing immunization certificates to ensure compliance with SC Immunization Laws. If your child has any shots during the school year please send an updated SC Certificate of Immunization to school.

    Flu season is fast approaching. Here are some facts about the flu virus:

    * Influenza or “the flu” is an illness that affects our entire body, including the lungs. As many as one in five Americans will get the flu each year. A virus that spreads from person to person causes flu.  

    * You get the flu from other people. The flu virus spreads through coughing or sneezing. It also spreads by touching something that a sick person has touched and then touching your eyes, nose or mouth.

    * Sometimes you can have the flu and not know it. Here are some signs that you might have the flu:

    • high fever (temperature higher than 100 degrees Fahrenheit)
    • headache
    • fatigue
    • dry cough
    • sore throat
    • runny or stuffy nose

    Children and some adults may also have:

    • upset stomach
    • vomiting.

    Remember that no medication can be sent with students to school. An adult must bring medication in. They must have a permission form signed by parent and physician to have medication at school. Thanks for helping us make this a happy and healthy school year!

  • Habit 4 — Think Win-Win

    4 Think Win-Win is the habit of mutual respect.  When we think Win-Win, we make sure everyone leaves the situation feeling like a winner. For example, if we think Win-Win with school assignments, we make sure our work is completed.  It's a win for the student because they are staying on task and it's a win for the teacher, because they know the student is putting forth their best efforts.  This situation is a win for the parents too, because they know they are producing the future leaders of tomorrow and all parents want successful, hard working students.  So, this month, think about some different ways that you can create some WIN-WIN situations.
