MESSAGE FROM OUR NURSE, MRS. JUDGE

Attention 7th Grade Parents:
The deadline to turn in documentation for the vaccinations required for 7th grade year is quickly approaching. All 7th grade students are required by Ohio Immunization Law to have a Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis booster) as well as a meningococcal (meningitis) vaccine for the 2018-19 school year. Letters were mailed home at the end of August to any student still needing to provide documentation of these vaccines. Proof of administration for both vaccines is required by September 21, 2018. Vaccination records can be faxed to the Middle School at 513-206-7245 or emailed to the WMS school nurse, Angela Judge, at judgea@wyomingcityschools.org

Technology and Your Child
Now that some school routines are established at home, it is time to look at student screen time. If we added up all the minutes/hours that our children watch TV, use their phone, surf the web, watch YouTube, do homework on computers and play computer or video games we might be surprised at the total amount of time. Last spring for example, Fortnite became not only a topic of conversation but students often shared the amount of time they were playing this game online—some would say 4 hours a day. How much is too much screen time? Please see the infographic below to see the new guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics:

screen time.library

Teachers are often on the front line of identifying some concerns around screen time—student’s not completing homework, tired in class, the need to be online, and the need to play games during school time. Here is a great article from Common Sense Media, “School-Year-Screen-Time Rules from a Teacher.” Rebecca Young is not only a teacher but a parent as well—check out her quick and easy steps to address screen time.
Healthy Children.org has a media planner with a calculator that might be a helpful tool for you and your child.

Dear string parents,
Welcome back! We are looking forward to another successful and fulfilling year of string education. Fifth grade parents, it’s wonderful to have your child at the middle school. To best stay in contact with you, please take a moment to fill out an online information sheet. I’m including the link in this post.

Your child will be bringing home our WMS strings handbook which should answer most of your questions about the year in strings. In it you will find a permission slip for our trip to the CSO at Music Hall and information about the Essential Elements method book for grades 5 and 6. I will also include a link where you can purchase our performance polo as well as spirit wear! If your child’s polo still fits there is no need to order a new one. Fifth grade parents, however, your child will need a polo shirt for orchestra performances.

Please note that this is the last week to order the performance polo shirts.

Looking forward to making music! Please contact us with any questions
