Congratulations to Sanjeeta for completing more than 100 laps around our back track! She is the 3rd kindergartner to reach this milestone! We are all very impressed with her focus and determination!
Even though the weather did not have a very winter-like feel...thank you for everyone who moved it as part of our Winter Walk Day celebration on February 3rd! Special thanks to Arbin and Micah for leading us around the track and Mrs. Pariseau for making awards for all of our participants!
Please join us on Monday, February 8th for our Monday Morning Meeting where we will celebrate the accomplishments of all of the movers. Two of our movers, Arbin and Emmett will be honored with a Morning Move It! Gold Medal for passing the 100 mile mark!
School Based Health Center (SBHC) News!
The great news is the SBHC program in the Burlington School District has expanded. Staffed by doctors and nurse practitioners from University Pediatrics, there are now SBHC clinics in four different schools in our district. The SA, IAA, and BHS already had established clinics and the newest SBHC recently opened at Edmunds Elementary. This is wonderful news for the families and students of our community who now have convenient access to quality medical care, in their school. Due to these changes, we have had a change in schedule for our SBHC at the SA. The SBHC will no longer be open alternating Tuesdays, but we are very pleased to announce that Elizabeth Robinson, NP will be joining us and splitting her Fridays between the SA and the IAA.
The SA SBHC schedule is:
Mary Lee Ritter, FNP - Thursdays 7:30 - 10am
Elizabeth Robinson, NP - Select Fridays 1-3pm (2/12,3/4,4/15,5/6,5/20,6/3)
If you would like to sign your child up for the SBHC or have any questions at all - please contact your School Nurses, Justina Starr or Jessica Valin
