NURSE’S CORNER

Scoliosis Screening – Grade 5- girls only

The New York State Education Law requires that all girls in 5th grade receive a school screening examination to identify the possibility of a curvature of the spine (scoliosis). Each child is screened separately.  Girls are required to wear a bra or bathing suit top to allow me to visualize their backs. Please do not have your daughter wear a full-piece bathing suit as this does not allow correct visualization.

I will screen all 5th grade girls during their regular gym period: Monday January 28th for Mrs. O’Neill’s, Ms. Rogan’s, and Mrs. Santoro’s classes; Tuesday, January 29th for Mrs. Farley’s and  Mr.O’Neil’s classes

JANUARY’S FOCUS: TOLERANCE

At Anne Hutchinson School, we believe high levels of academic rigor and the greatest cognitive growth occur through social interaction and we know such interaction requires mutual respect. This belief and this knowledge are the foundation of the Anne Hutch has H.E.A.R.T. program.

Undoubtedly, in our school today and in their future places of employment, our students will meet and work alongside people from a variety of cultures, backgrounds, ethnicities, and religious beliefs. The explicit teaching of tolerance guides our children to embrace diversity and prepares them well for our increasingly complex and global world.

Throughout the month of January, our school community will explore the concept of tolerance as seeking to identify, understand, respect, and appreciate differences in people and we are quickly coming to realize that the only thing we all truly have in common is that we are all different.

JANUARY’S GOOD DEED OF THE MONTH

We are excited to partner, once again, with The Loukoumi Make a Difference Foundation in a new charitable collaboration with the Broadway play Come From Away, a Tony Award winning musical that tells the ultimate story of kindness as a town in Newfoundland, Canada embraced over 7,000 airline passengers whose planes were diverted there on September 11th, 2001. Click here for a glimpse into the show and its powerful message.

In October, on National Make a Difference Day with Loukoumi, several Anne Hutch students visited the theater and presented the producers with a Loukoumi Make a Difference Award and launched our partnership. At our recent H.E.A.R.T. assembly, students learned about the events of September 11, 2001 and our Good Deed of the Month. This month’s good deed includes writing a caring card to a family affected by 9/11 to let them know their loved one is still remembered and honored today. It also includes a dollar donation to the charitable organization Broadway Cares.

For more information, including the opportunity to attend the show and an exclusive Q&A for our group after the show, please see the upcoming flyer in your child’s backpack or visit: www.LoukoumiFoundation.org.
