Stars is a class that all students at SVMS are assigned. Stars teachers serve as mentors -- getting to know students on a personal level, monitoring grades, providing service opportunities, learning social skills and teaching students about CLASSY.
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
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.
