Nursing students assisted in the school health office and worked with families in health-related outreach experiences under the guidance of clinical instructor, Denise Hammer, MSN, RNC-NIC.
In addition to providing numerous health presentations in classrooms, assisting with the blood drive, vision & hearing screenings, the Smile IL dental program, Jr High PE activities, and PreK Family Fun Night, the students organized and led The Body Walk this spring. The BodyWalk is a FUN, experiential exhibit of the human body designed to educate K - 5th grade students on the importance of the body's systems and functions. Healthy eating and physical activity are continually vital to the growth and development of minds and bodies for students and families to be ready to learn!
Many thanks to the staff, the 26 high school students that helped with the Body Walk, the outreach families, community members, administration and the BOE for their support. As always--team work!
