National Junior Honor Society News
Applications for NJHS are open until the week before Thanksgiving to any 7th or 8th grade student interested. Applications can be picked up from Mrs. Lewis or at the SVMS office.
NJHS is doing a fundraiser over the next few weeks for a charity. NJHS members will be selling candy bars at lunch time. Bring your $$ and support a good cause.
School Nurse Corner
The vision screenings are 99% complete! Letters have been sent to parents/guardians if a student did not have at least 20/30 vision in both eyes at a distance or 20/32 for near vision. I have vouchers for a free optometrist exam and glasses, if needed, for any student that has no insurance covering vision and the family income is at, or under, 200% of the Federal Poverty Level guidelines (https://aspe.hhs.gov/poverty-guidelines.) Please contact the office if you’d like a voucher.
Vision Screenings do not pick up all visual issues. It is recommended that everyone have an annual professional visual exam.
November is National Diabetes Awareness month! Do you know the signs and symptoms of diabetes? (Frequent urination, fruity smelling breath, lack of energy, unquenchable thirst) Go to https://worlddiabetesday.org/ and take the short test to see if you are at risk of developing diabetes. How much do you know about diabetes? Check out this site http://discoverdiabetes.idf.org/
November 14 is World Diabetes Day. I encourage everyone to wear blue to help raise awareness of diabetes.
Here are some ways you can help raise awareness of diabetes and how it affects our lives. Download the Blue Circle selfie app on your phone or tablet
- Take a selfie or a group picture, position the blue circle around your face or anywhere on the picture and share it on social media (#WDD) with a personal message.
- Post this short quiz link to your social media page with your Blue Circle picture https://www.idf.org/type-2-diabetes-risk-assessment/
- Wear Blue on November 14
- Go to https://worlddiabetesday.org to learn more.
Remember, diabetes is a family affair. 1 in 2 people living with diabetes do not know they have it! Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to heart disease, nerve damage, blindness and death.
