Nurses’ Notes
It is very important that, if your child is absent for any reason, that you notify the nurse’s clinic.  Please add nurse@ourladyofhope.net to your email blast letting us know if there is an illness, family event, vacation etc…  The clinic has noticed over the last several weeks that the nurses are being left off of email communication regarding vacations, family events and even illnesses.  Even though the front office and teachers try very hard to forward any communication, sometimes communication can be missed.  This leads to a child being marked “sick” when in fact, they are absent for another reason. Thank you for all that you do to help keep our school stay Happy and Healthy!God Bless,
Allison Kellner & Carol James

Poppy Sellier’s “Red Wagon” Easter Drive
The Moms Group is hosting a drive to collect filled Easter Eggs that they will send Poppy (and her friends at the hospital) lots of Easter Eggs to help make their Easter Season a bit more cheerful.As you shop and fill eggs for your own kids, please consider filling some for these amazing kids at Inova Fairfax. Whatever extra you can spare would be great- whether its 10 or 100 eggs- all is appreciated! This would even be a great Lenten service project for your kids to help with!
Please drop filled eggs in the collection box labeled “For Poppy’s Red Wagon” in the front foyer of the school. Any questions please contact Mrs. Liz Andersen at lizforest@hotmail.com
