Moms Who Care money!

Remember the Moms Who Care?
Well, a wonderful Mom donated $50!
The Moms Who Care used this money to
purchase much needed tennis shoes for two students!

Since school ends this week the Moms are taking a break @ school.

However, they will be hard at work making some improvements in the room!
Donations are still being accepted too & bargain shopping will continue as well!
We have big plans for next school year!

Do you work with Moms Who Care?  I hope so!

What should I do with all of these glasses?


Where I work... the Health Center ends up with all of the 'lost' glasses!
Even though we've announced that we have all of these - they remain unclaimed :(
We wanted to figure out a way to recycle these!
I did some research and found out the Lions Club accepts eyeglasses!
You can read more about their Eyeglass Recycling program here.

If your office ends up with a bunch of unclaimed eyeglasses then
please consider mailing them to:

Lions Club International Headquarters
Attention: Receiving Department
300 West 22nd Street
Oak Brook, IL 60523, USA

I am happy to help the Lions Club because they
have helped many of my students over the years.
Each year I have 2-3 families who apply for financial assistance
for an eye exam and glasses (if needed). 
My local Lions Club has helped all of the families I've referred!

Not only does the Lions Clubs offer help for vision needs;
they also offer assistance for: 
hearing aids, health-related services, scholarships or educational needs!
You can find your local Lions Club here!

Do you work with Moms Who Care?

Moms Who Care

I know I've mentioned the Moms Who Care before-
you can click on the link above or in the sidebar for more information.
You can read more posts about the volunteer group here, here, here ....
I thought there was one more too, but I can't seem to find it : )

Working with this volunteer group is one of the highlights of my weeks!
I  am very thankful that the administration and school board
allow this volunteer group to help our students!
It is hard to find words to express what these Moms mean to me-
I can only imagine how difficult it is for the students to find the right words!

One of our very talented students made a video (for the visual learners!)
about our local Moms Who Care group...

National School Nurse Day- free printable

another free printable...

Print for your favorite school nurse for National School Nurse Day!

I can't believe another school year is quickly coming to an end!
Are you a parent or staff member wondering what to give your
favorite school nurse for upcoming National School Nurse Day?
Why not print this cute 5x7 card and write her an inspirational note on the backside?!
Everyone loves to feel appreciated and
a handwritten note is often one of the best gifts :)
