A message from Sharon Miller, our school nurse: Jennifer has been generous all year bringing in water bottles for our students in the health office.  Recently we have been going through cases of water bottles in a just a couple of days. These water bottles are for students who are feeling sick – not for you to use instead of bringing your own water bottle.  Please bring a water bottle from home each day.  You can refill them in the Great Room if needed.  Thanks!
