Coach Willhite will be having a parent meeting for all 5th-7th graders that want to sign up for cheerleading.
Please read this important reminder from our school nurse Mrs. Hamilton: SWING INTO A HEALTHY SPRING/ TIPS FOR PARENTS AND CHILDREN Play safe and get plenty of sleep and exercise Eat a balanced diet and get plenty of exercise See your doctor if you are ill and follow your physician recommendations Follow school policy and keep your children home if they have symptoms of illness. The CDC considers a person to have a fever when he or she has a temperature of 100.4 or greater. It is school policy that a child should not return to school after illness until they are fever free for 24 hours without fever reducing medicine. It is school policy that a child should not return to school until there has been no vomiting for 24 hours.
Mrs. Willhite's early bird physics classroom works on finding the speed of sound using homemade resonance tubes and tuning forks. The girls beat the boys and got more accurate values! Way to go!
