O God of all beginnings and endings,
We praise and thank you for the gift of this school year.
It has been a time filled with grace and blessings,
With challenges and opportunities, joys and sorrows.
Give us the rest and refreshment we need this summer.
Let our efforts of this past year bear fruit.
Bring all of our plans to a joyful conclusion,
And bless us, according to your will,
With the fulfillment of our summer hopes and dreams.
Help us return to school with a new spirit and a new energy.
May we continue to grow
In age, wisdom, knowledge and grace
all the days of our lives.
From the Nurse
Medication Pick Up
If your child takes any medication at school, including inhalers and aerosol treatments, please pick these items up from the nurse's office by the last day of school. The last day of school is May 23rd for elementary students and May 24th for high school students.
School regulations prohibit sending medication home with a student. If you are unable to pick up your child's medication by the last day, please call the nurse at 419-693-0465 ext. 225 to make other arrangements. Any medication not picked up will be properly disposed of. Also if your student will need to take medication next year, please make sure the proper paper work is in the office by the first day of school. Forms may be downloaded from the school website.
