Project Linus

The wonderful women of Project Linus from Harrison Freewill Baptist Church in Minford have already made and donated several regular blankets and a weighted lap blanket to our MD unit here at Northwest Elementary. Ann and Darrell Cable delivered the blankets on May 12th, and while they were here, took an order for more! This summer, the ladies will be working on 20 more weighted lap blankets and 24 regular blankets for our Northwest kiddos! They charge absolutely nothing for the blankets, but do accept donations of fabric (cotton, flannel, and fleece), batting, and thread. Ann said that they will also make a "touchy, feely blanket" for our sensory room and are going to look into making weighted neck "snakes" and other weighted sensory items. These blankets can cost over $100 a piece if purchased from specialty catalogs, so we are VERY LUCKY they want share their gifts with Northwest!
The mission of Project Linus is to "Provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly creadted by volunteer blanketeers." If you would like to learn more about Project Linus, go to http://www.projectlinus.orghttp://www.projectlinus.org
If you would like to make a donation of material, thread, or batting, you may contact Ann Cable directly at 740-259-3372.

Attached to this letter is an informational handout as well as an application.  If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Greg Tipton, Principal, Northwest Middle School, at 740/259-2528.

We would like to encourage all parents who meet the guidelines set forth to take advantage of this opportunity.  

Two Vaccines Required for 7th Grade Students

There are two vaccines required by the Ohio Department of Health for all incoming 7th Grade Students for the FALL of 2016.

• A diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus (Tdap) booster. This immunization needs to have been given no sooner than the child's 10th birthday.

• First Dose of the Meningococcal (MCV4) vaccine is a NEW required vaccine for students attending Ohio schools entering 7th Grade in the Fall of 2016.

PLEASE PROVIDE AN UPDATED VACCINE RECORD TO THE SCHOOL as Verification that your child has had the Tdap Booster and the 1st Meningococcal (MCV4) Vaccine.

Immunizations may be obtained from your child's healthcare provider or area clinics. The Scioto County Health Department will be scheduling some immunization clinics this summer to try and accommodate this new immunization requirement. I will keep you posted on any clinics that I find available.
