Health & Wellness

Hi there!

I am so happy to be the School Nurse at Central Christian School! It’s truly an honor to partner with you in your child’s academic journey. I’m especially excited that my role includes guiding the health and wellness program at Central. I consider wellness to be a vital part of a child’s school experience. You have to be healthy to learn.

Wellness is comprised of many components, including physical, spiritual, mental, social, academic, and environmental health. When one aspect of wellness is not functioning at full capacity, a student cannot learn as effectively. At Central, I work closely with families, staff and students to encourage wellness for all members of our community. A primary means to doing this is through education. As parents, teachers, and children are educated on various topics, you are empowered to make better choices towards health. Throughout the year, I offer learning opportunities in classrooms that coordinate with grade level curriculum. I also provide monthly updates on health topics through our website.

In addition to traditional aspects of wellness, I have a heart for understanding and educating on trauma-informed care. In a series entitled "Connected Teaching: Using Relationship to Enhance Education," I have worked with our teachers and staff to bring awareness to the value of viewing children’s behavior through a different lens. I will continue to provide new learning on trauma-informed care and desire to be a resource to all members of our school community on this topic.

All health and wellness forms may be accessed through Quick Links ("Forms and Resources") on the parent homepage of our website. There you will find ways to communicate with me regarding your child's allergies, asthma needs, and overall health.

Thank you for trusting to me to partner with you in the care of your child. Feel free to contact me anytime. I look forward to a healthy, productive school year!
