Reminders about medications at school

All medications must be in the original container and must be accompanied by directions from a doctor.  This policy applies to all medications, including over the counter items such as ibuprofen, aspirin and cough drops.  The directions must include the student’s name, name of the medication, dosage, time to administer, how to administer, the duration of the medication, the reason for it, and any side effects.  Doctors may fax them to the school, but we cannot take them over the phone.

Spray Park Mural Project

Local artist, Tracie Davis (tinybydesign.com), has been commissioned to create a large mural for the St. Johns City Spray Park, made up of 5”x5” aluminum tiles that come together to make an incredible scene.  About half were painted by community members at events last summer, and the rest will be completed by St. Johns elementary students.  The tiles are painted by copying the colors/images from a piece of the original canvas (which the students keep). A local donor has generously provided the funding to pay for all students!  Installation will occur early this summer, with the unveiling shortly after. Volunteers from the Clinton County Arts Council will be at Oakview in June to help students paint.  Diane Harte (former Oakview kindergarten teacher) is coordinating this part of the project.  We are so excited to see this come together!
