School Health in February

The nurse’s office has had a steady business in the month of January. There has been some “GI” issues in neighboring communities but at the Peirce School I have not seen much at all. For the most part Peirce School has had a very healthy couple of months (and we have not seen any cases of headlice recently)

This gives me the oppurtunity to walk around to the classrooms to visit or teach lessons, or just to say Hi!

In the month of February I will begin my Great Body Shop lessons. I love teaching your children and I think they like to see a new yet familiar face teaching health. You should be receiving parent letters from your child’s teacher informing you of what the upcoming GBS lesson will contain.

I will also be in the gym measuring heights and weights on the students. I will gather the body mass index numbers for the state’s new BMI initiative for grades 1 and 4.

Stay warm! I’m going to curl up with a good book, a warm blanket and my loveable puppy.
