Box Tops for Education

Please submit any BoxTops that you have collected before the end of February. I will be sending off the next batch then so that we can get credited for them this year. We have collected around $700 worth of BoxTops this year. Each BoxTop is worth 10 cents. If you use products with BoxTops, please tear then off and send them to Horn instead of throwing them away. Do not wait to turn them in as they do expire and I have to throw away any that are beyond the expiration date. Ask you friends, neighbors, and family to save BoxTops for us. In a school our size, we should be able to raise more money that we have been doing over the past year. Last year we raiser $1,390 from BoxTops. Let’s see if we can top that total this year.

Thank you,

Margaret Slutz

Year Book Sales

It is getting close to the deadline to order yearbooks. If you have not ordered one and you wish to do so, send in a check made out to Horn PTO for $25. Turn in your check and form to your child’s teacher. If you are not sure if you ordered a yearbook, check with your child’s teacher.

February 11, 2016 is the last day to pay for a yearbook. Make sure you turn in your form and check to your teacher by then.

ACANTHOSIS NIGRICANS

Every year, Texas School Nurses screen grades 1, 3, 5, 7, 9th grades for Acanthosis Nigricans. Acanthosis nigricans is a skin marker associated with insulin problems and is considered a risk factor for Type 2 Diabetes and other chronic diseases. Because of the increasingly alarming rates of children developing Type 2 Diabetes, acanthosis nigricans assessments are important and can help identify children with high insulin levels who may be at-risk for developing the disease. Children who are positively identified with the AN marker undergo additional assessments of body mass index (BMI), BMI percentile, and blood pressure.

If I see this marker, I will be sending a referral sheet home with your child with the additional information (height, weight, Body Mass Index and two blood pressure readings). You are then asked to share this information with your child’s doctor for follow-up.

For further information contact me or check out the state website, https://rfes.utpa.edu/

Your nurse,

Bendiksen,RN (mbendiks@houstonisd.org)

713 295 5264
