Aspire Higher Activities at Rowe School
Week of October 17-21 Rowe Staff Aspirations - What have we done as staff as we Aspired Higher?
Mrs. Morse has developed a template for each staff member regarding their education and work experience and has taken a picture of each of us. All staff who wish to will type up the form giving their educational background, what professional jobs they have had, and what other jobs they have had. We will post on the bulletin board outside the office. We will have it up by Monday 10/17 and it will stay there through the week of November 4.
Achieve career goal
Wednesday, November 2nd we will have an Aspirations Night from 5-6. Keynote speakers will be Maureen Howard and Nancy McClean-Morrisette on what the Community Education Exchange does and how it helps Oxford Hills students aspire to continue their education. They will also discuss what parents can do in partnership with the school. They will speak with parents. Grade 4-6 students will go with Mr. Sincerbeaux and talk about career aspirations they have. As a former counselor, he will go over what education and training they will need.
Students in preK-1 will go with some teachers for story time and activities. Students in grades 2-3 will go with other teachers for stories related to different jobs. Our counselor Lynn Eldridge is going to do career inventories with grade 6 students early in the week so they will have some ideas prior to Wednesday night. In addition, students from OH Technical Center will be coming over early in the week to meet with our fourth grade students to talk about their programs and what they do.
We always have a need for volunteers to help out in many places in our school. A current need is for library and cafeteria volunteers. If you are an approved volunteer, please contact Jane Morse to schedule a time/place to volunteer. If you are new to volunteering, you may pick up a packet of information at the office. A short meeting with an administrator and a background check need to be completed and then you will be given your assignment. Remember to be available at least once a week for consistency.
We need to work together in educating our children and we really appreciate our volunteers.

How exactly do lice get there?
1.One louse gets in the hair unnoticed. It will lay 4-10 eggs EVERY day. In 7-10 days these hatch into little nymphs. In seven days, these are old enough to lay eggs.
Things to do to get rid of the lice:
1.If you do not want to use RID or NIX, you may cover the hair with conditioner, mayonnaise, or olive oil and let sit for an hour. These do not kill lice, nymphs or eggs but will stun them so you can comb them out.
2.You will have to comb every part of hair with the yellow handled lice comb and wipe on a paper towel between swipes to take lice and eggs from hair.
3.You must comb every day for three weeks to be sure you get every little nymph and egg. If you miss just one, and it hatches, the whole infestion starts over again.
4. Use the conditioner treatment every other day at first, then every 3rd day.
5.Pour boiling water over combs, brushes, barrettes, and washable hair pretties.
6.Wash bedding in hot water and use dryer. Wash jackets and clothes worn the past 2 days.
7.Bag the stuffed animals the kids have on the bed for two weeks.
8.Vacuum backs of chairs and couch.
