Welcome Back Ocean View Family!
It's unbelievable that our summer is soon coming to an end. I hope everyone had an amazing safe summer ; ) I had a wonderful summer. In June you would have found me with my family in Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. Chicago is always a highlight for all of us. Nine
family members met in Chicago to watch the Chicago Cubs play and Yes! Of Course! They won! My granddaughter learned to sing "Take me out to the ballgame and YMCA." Good times!!!
So now it's time for a brand new school year and I'm so privileged to be your School Nurse. I love meeting our new student families and reconnecting with our current families.
HELPFUL HINTS FROM KIDSHEALTH.ORG
To help ease back-to-school butterflies, try to transition kids into a consistent school-night routine a few weeks before school starts. Also make sure that they:
Get enough sleep (establish a reasonable bedtime so that they'll be well-rested and ready to learn in the morning)
Eat a healthy breakfast (they're more alert and do better in school if they eat a good breakfast every day)
Write down the need-to-know info to help them remember details such as their locker combination, what time classes and lunch start and end, their homeroom and classroom numbers, teachers' and/or bus drivers' names, etc.
Use a wall calendar or personal planner to record when assignments are due, tests will be given, extracurricular practices and rehearsals will be held, etc.
Have them organize and set out what they need the night before (homework and books should be put in their backpacks by the door and clothes should be laid out in their bedrooms)
As always if you ever have a question or concern please feel free to contact me anytime.
