Yesterday we celebrated Nurse Appreciation Day.  We are lucky to have our school nurse, Mrs. Heiman, at SJS.  I know we all appreciate the care she displays and deep concern she has for all SJS students.  She is a valuable resource that helps SJS to run smoothly.  It’s never good to not feel your best at school, and Mrs. Heiman has a way of making students feel better.  If you have a moment feel free to send her an email of appreciation.
