Dear Parents and Guardians, 

Yikes, this was my first time ever experiencing back pain, and it was excruciating. I did a few things over the weekend that might have tweaked the muscles in my back (moving my Jet Ski seat or cleaning my kitchen cabinets). On Monday and Tuesday, I could feel the tightening of my back muscles, but Wednesday morning I woke up in serious pain and couldn’t move, which was scary. I called my twin sister and she came over and took me to the doctors and was prescribed a muscle relaxant and pain medicine. Part of me is thinking that since I turned 50, it is downhill from here! I spent two days on the couch relaxing and figuring out how to best use the medication I was given. This morning, I came to work but I think by lunchtime I will be back on my couch resting. I hope that over the weekend things will start to be back to normal. 

A special thanks to the PTO for hosting our STEAM Challenge yesterday. Christine Hunewell sent me a few videos and pictures. I am so sorry to have missed it! The students had a blast with all of the different challenges. Three of our students’ bridges held 68 pounds and we didn’t have any more weights to safely place on them. We will continue that challenge next Friday. Students are already talking about how they are going to change their designs for next year’s event! 

Next week, we will celebrate Teacher & Staff Appreciation Week! Our PTO is busy at work organizing different opportunities and events to thank our incredible staff. If you want to get involved check out the NHCS PTO Facebook Page, contact your child’s room parent or email Megan Magrauth at blissfulworks@msn.com. Friday of next week will be having a “Walk the Red Carpet Dress-up Day.” We hope our students will participate.

Have a great spring weekend!
