Dental Safari coming in January 2018

Dental Safari will once again be at our school. This is a great time to take advantage of seeing the dentist on school grounds if your child has never seen a dentist. This will also take care of the dental requirements for next year in May.  Dental Safari is a great group of people and the students love when they come to the school to see them.


This year Dental Safari will be here on January 29, 30, and 31st of 2018. Nurse Alicia Arth will be sending home consent forms for parents to complete and return to her office or your child’s teacher. Please complete the health questions and allergy section on the form. Include your insurance information if possible.


This is a great opportunity for your child to see the dentist. The dental hygienists will clean their teeth, do fluoride treatments and sealants, if needed. The dentist will examine your child’s teeth for cavities and other problematic issues. There are no invasive procedures done (example: filling cavities or extractions).


The school nurse needs the consent forms returned by November 17th. She faxes them to Dental Safari as soon as she receives them so the dental staff can prepare a list of students who are interested. If your child misplaces the consent form, there will be extra copies by the secretary's window or in the nurse's office.


Young Scientists at Penniman

Ms. Chalberg and Mrs. Jones recently studied owl pellets with the young scientists in their classroom. With their safety goggles, gloves, and tools, these scientists made discoveries about the eating habits of owls. They discovered that owls swallow their small prey whole, and then regurgitate the parts they can't digest. That might sound a little gross, but it offers great insight into the food chain. Look below for a slideshow of the young scientists taking apart the owl pellets and attempting to assemble the bones they found so they could identify what the owl had eaten. How cool!!
