• Elementary School Health Screenings

  • Vision and Hearing

    Vision and hearing screenings are done throughout the year for new students and all students in Kindergarten, 1st grade, 3rd grade, and 5th grade. I am always happy to do a vision and/or hearing screen on any student at the request of a parent or teacher.

  • Scoliosis

    At this time, only Fifth Grade girls are screened for scoliosis in the Fall. A parent letter with more information will be sent home closer to the screening time.

  • Acanthosis Nigricans

    In addition I will do a screening for Acanthosis Nigricans (AN) at the same time as the vision/hearing screening for 1st, 3rd, and 5th grade students (a visual sign on the back of the neck which could indicate an early sign of Type 2 Diabetes).

  • Growth and Development
     
    This program, entitled "Always Changing", is presented to 5th grade students. It covers age appropriate material about puberty. More information, along with a permission form, will be sent to all parents of 5th graders closer to the program time. If you would like to preview the videos, they can be found on Youtube under the titles, "Always Changing (girls only)" or "Always Changing (boys only)". A male teacher will stay with the boys during the video in a separate room from the girls.
