Teachers Collaborate in Monarch Project

Crestview’s Spanish teacher Tammy Dann, 2nd grade teacher Tonya McCarville and the school librarian Ann Reynolds collaborated to raise and launch 10 Monarch butterflies this fall. With handmade screen covered tomato cages in McCarville’s classroom and a hallway display case, students watched the caterpillars munch on milkweed, spin their chrysalis’ and transform into butterflies. Senora Dann utilized the opportunity to discuss the process in Spanish and students of all grades watched the daily progress between classes in the hallway display. Students of various grades saw these delicate creatures take their first flight over the course of several weeks’ time.

Crestview students learned about the life cycle of Monarch butterflies and recently released 10 butterflies they had cared for.

Health Office News

It’s that time of year again!  We’re returning to school, filling out forms, and needing all sorts of information and papers. One place that collects a lot of your child’s information is the Nurse’s Office. Two of the most important pieces of information collected are your child’s immunization record and a yearly health update.  The immunization record is required by the State of Iowa and helps keep your child up to date with their immunizations.  It is very important to provide the nurse with your most recent immunizations and health information.  The health update form informs the nurse of important updates to your child’s health such as recent surgery, new allergies, new medications and more.  If you haven’t filled one out this year, please ask your school nurse for a form or find it at www.wdmcs.org/district/our-schools/registration/forms. Stop in and get to know your nurse!
