National School Nurse Day is observed on the Wednesday during National Nurses Week in May every year, and takes place on May 11 this year; it’s a day when we come together as a nation to honor the field of school nursing. This event honors the daily efforts of school nurses to ensure all students’ wellbeing, safety, and academic ability. On October 1, 1902, the first school nurse, Linda Richards, was employed to prevent absenteeism by consulting with kids and families regarding healthcare requirements related to infectious diseases. She led the adoption of evidence-based nursing practice across the city after a month of effective nursing operations in New York City schools. Since then, school nurses have continued to control infectious diseases, but their function has grown and become more diverse. The health of a student is inextricably linked to their ability to learn. Unaddressed health care needs make it difficult for children to participate in the learning system. The school nurse helps students succeed by providing healthcare to all students in the school context through examination, treatment, and follow-up. The school nurse helps children with their physical, psychological, emotional, and social health requirements as well as their academic success. According to the National Survey of Children with Special Healthcare Needs, 11.2 million children in the United States are at risk of developing persistent physical, cognitive, social, or emotional problems. These students may require school-based health assistance, which school nurses can provide. National School Nurse Day has been observed since 1972 to honor school nurses. National School Nurse Day was created to raise awareness about the importance of school nurses in the educational setting.

Dear Parents and Guardians, Recently we have become aware of a new video game and character with a cartoon-like character that we feel we need to address. The title of the game is “Poppy Playtime” and the main character in the game is “Huggy Wuggy.” The game is styled to be similar to Five Nights at Freddy’s - the main goal is survival - which means that there are characters and things that are trying to kill one another. Poppy’s Playtime has spin-off cartoons that can be found on YouTube - at this time some being found on YouTube Kids as well. These cartoons often depict fear and violence with some going as far as finding weapons to kill each other. In addition, several police stations have posted on Facebook and other social media platforms that these characters may also encourage and promote “challenges' ' involving behaviors seen in the videos. At the bottom of this letter you will find pictures of the character - this comes from the Merrick County Sheriff's Office. The sheriff’s office along with us at the school encourage parents to monitor their children while online and remain vigilant in knowing what children are watching via YouTube - it is so easy for them to be watching something you may think of as appropriate and then it quickly becomes something they should not be seeing. If you would like to see the full description of the character, please visit the Merrick County Sheriff's Office on Facebook. Maxwell Schools will continue to share information pertaining to this and any other items that may come up in order to protect our students here at Maxwell. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. Thank you, Lori Mau, Maxwell School Counselor Missy Friend, Maxwell Elementary Principal

This April 27, on National Prime Rib Day, we’re headed to our favorite steakhouse. Also known as “standing rib roast,” prime rib is a tender, flavorful cut of roast from the rib section of the steer – just one of the eight prime cuts of beef. While it can be traditionally paired with potatoes, stuffing, and vegetables to make a “Sunday Roast,” there are many unique flavors and recipes to cook up prime rib with. It’s a juicy celebration and one we’re all for. Though we can’t say for sure where and how prime rib was first cooked up, we know that by the time of the Industrial Revolution, it was emerging in Australia, the United States, the UK, and Canada. Prime rib is a cut of the ribs of the cow, typically between the 6th and 12th rib, and is considered one of the most classic and delicious cuts of beef. In the UK particularly, prime rib took off in the late 1800s as families made it the centerpiece of their “Sunday Roast.” This popular dinner practice put prime rib in the center of the dinner table, though it was more commonly known as “standing rib roast” due to the fact that it was cooked upright. Sunday Roast was commonly served up with mashed potatoes, stuffing, Yorkshire pudding, and vegetables. Today, this is still known as a very traditional way to prepare prime rib and is definitely well-loved by meat-eaters.
