Let’s Make a Difference Week: Mentone Elementary will be having a fundraiser all week for Riley Hospital. There are two ways to support this worthy cause. First, Monday through Friday (Feb 8-12) students may purchase hearts for $5.00 each that will be displayed on the front windows of the school office. Students will bring their money to the office each day at the conclusion of the announcements to purchase a heart. Our goal is to completely fill all the office windows with bright colored hearts for Riley. The second way to help support Riley is to purchase lip pop suckers today and tomorrow during lunch in the LGI. The cost of the lip pops is $.50 each. Our goal this year is to raise $1000 for Riley’s Children Hospital! This fundraiser is sponsored by the Mentone Student Council.
Notes from Nurse Jayme:
Flu and cold season is here, please help by following these health tips:
Strategies to help prevent spreading illnesses include:
* Students and staff should stay home if they are sick.
*Students must be fever free for 24 hours before returning to school.
*Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue away after use and wash your hands. If a tissue is not available, cover your mouth and nose with your sleeve, not your hand.
* Wash hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds, especially after you cough or sneeze.
* Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
* Avoid kissing, hugging, and sharing cups or eating utensils with people who are sick.
Washing your hands is the First Line of Defense against Germs!
