LIONS VAN for 5-8th grade--Help Needed Monday 8-11 a.m.
Volunteers needed to run vision machines and walk students to and from the Lion's van on Monday, November 19th from 8-11.  Training provided!  We will be checking 5-8th grade vision and hearing for those who returned the permission slips last month.  This is a fun way to see your student and counts for volunteer hours!  Please call or email clinic to sign up.

For those previously screened, abnormal results are being rechecked and those failing hearing or vision will be notified by letter from the clinic.

Nurse's hours Monday-Wed and Friday 7:30-3:30 p.m.  On Thursdays, Mrs. Bauer staffs the clinic.
