From School Nurse: Parents and or Guardians of Unit #50 students, As you may already know, proper hand hygiene is important in decreasing communicable illness. Please encourage your student(s) to wash his/her hands after using the restroom and before eating. Hand sanitizer stations are available for student use, outside the cafeteria entrances. With that being said, I would also like to review the school policy for when students must be excluded from school, as well as when they may return, following illness. Fever -Any student with fever may not return to school until they have been fever free (below 100 degrees Fahrenheit) for 24 hours, without the assistance of Tylenol, Ibuprofen, etc. Vomiting/Diarrhea -Any student exhibiting symptoms of vomiting or diarrhea, with or without fever, must stay home or be sent home from school. The student may return to school 24 hours after symptoms subside. **The only exception to this rule is students who have a medical diagnosis that is not considered contagious. ** Strep Throat -A student with strep throat may return to school after they have been on antibiotic treatment for at least 24 hours and are fever free. If you have any questions regarding the above, or are not sure if your student should attend school, please feel free to contact me. Thank you so much for your help in keeping our students healthy! Julie Zeigler RN IEP-D firstname.lastname@example.org

Mrs. Nice played love songs while students rotated to different stations, which hosted four titles. Students chose one book at each station to rate in three categories: First Impression-judging how well they think they would like the book based on its cover and appearance Flirting-rating the book based on the summary Getting to Know You-make a judgement after reading a few pages of the book In the end, each book got a final score and students chose whether or not they would “take the book out”...of the library.

What a great day! In the morning Mrs. Buhnerkempe's first grade students wrote paragraphs about the hard life of a pilgrim. In the afternoon they lived the life of a Pilgrim! The Pilgrim boys fished and dug for clams while the girls worked in the garden and did the laundry. After the chores were finished, they enjoyed a small Thanksgiving dinner and played stick ball, a favorite Pilgrim game. What a fun day!

This week Mrs. Buhnerkempe's students were studying what makes sound in their reading story, Beth and the Band. They made old fashioned phones to vibrate string to carry the sound from mouth to ear. They stopped the vibration by pinching the string to see if sound still traveled and found that it did not! They were amazed how their voices can travel!

In honor of Veterans Day, our fifth grade students had the local Teutopolis American Legion members and some family members come to speak to the students about their experiences. The fifth grade classes learned about letter writing while addressing letters to troops currently deployed through a program called Operation Gratitude. In addition, Mrs. Meyer's fifth grade students wrote detailed essays about the life of a veteran that they interviewed. The students loved hearing the veterans stories, and sharing their letters with the soldiers.
Here is how your your support of the Teutopolis Educational Foundation makes a difference in our classrooms. https://goo.gl/HbD69g

At TJHS, students take an "Exploratory" class each quarter. For 2nd quarter, one of the "Exploratory" classes is called Christmas Creations. 18 junior high students met with Mrs. Jansen's kindergarten class. During this time, the kindergarten students told the junior high kids all about themselves, their hobbies, and their holiday traditions. This information will be used by the junior high students to create a holiday story with their kindergarten buddy as the main character! As Christmas draws near, the junior high students will once again have the chance to meet up with their buddy to present and read the story to them. What better way to kick off the holiday season than sharing a one-of-a-kind book with a friend!
