School Nurse Day is coming

Jan. 24 is national School Nurse Day.

For more than 20 years, the fourth Wednesday in January has been set aside as a day to recognize school nurses and improve understanding of the nurses' role in education.

This year's theme, suggested by the National Association of School Nurses, is "School nurses: Building bridges to link school and community strategies to promote student health."

The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District has 22 nurses to serve its 40 schools.

Skyview ski boosters meet

The Skyview Nordic Ski Team Booster Club will meet Thursday at 6 p.m. in the Skyview commons. Members will be getting volunteers ready for the Junior Olympics meet. If you would like to help with the race, or if you already have volunteered, please attend.

After the Bell

After the Bell, the after-school education program, is offering a pre-Fortnightly activity Jan. 26, prior to the ongoing Fortnightly at Soldotna Middle School.

Activity time from 2:30 to 6 p.m. will be provided for students who have preregistered with written parental permission. Students will participate in a planned activity, eat pizza and watch a movie. All students will be required to stay in the designated area until 6 p.m., then proceed to the Fortnightly sponsored by Soldotna Community Schools. There will be a charge for the pizza.

A registration table will be set up in the lunch room on Monday, Tuesday and Jan. 24 for picking up registration forms. Registration forms must be signed and returned to the office by Jan. 25. For more information, contact Rosy Thompson at 260-7085 until 1 p.m., or at 262-4344, ext. 252 or ext. 255, after 2:30.

All SMS students are encouraged to participate. The goal for the pre-Fortnightly is to keep the students occupied during the waiting period between 2:30 and 6 p.m. Parents are then aware of exactly where their kids are during those hours before the Fortnightly.
