GEM Award Nominations Due February 5
It's time for the annual GEM Awards Program! Now in year thirteen, the GEM Awards program honors adult volunteers and staff in Westerville Schools who go above and beyond for students during the previous year.
The Nomination period runs now through the end of the day on Friday, February 5, 2016, and winners will be announced in mid-March. The GEM Awards Celebration will take place on Monday, April 18, 7:00pm at Westerville North High School.
In addition to individual recipients, nominations are being requested for the Terry Gordon Business Award, presented by our sponsor and GEM partner, Roush Honda. Please consider nominating a business or non-profit organization that devotes considerable time, talent and/or treasure to your school building and/or the district. The same nomination form can be used for both individual and business nominations and is attached for your use. http://www.wcsoh.org/News/4641#sthash.7iXFgHJb.dpbs
Clothes Request from the School Nurse
We are in desperate need of your used or unwanted kids clothing in the clinic! We have so many kids who spill on, get sick on, or soak in puddles at recess. Any gender clothing is welcome (but we are especially low on boys). Comfortable t-shirts, and pants like sweats, track pants, or leggings are ideal, but we will take anything! Underwear and socks, too. Multiple sizes needed from about 5-16. Please remember us when you are cleaning out your drawers after the holidays! You can drop off any donations in the clinic with myself or the health aide. Thank you for your consideration!
