Weekly notes from Arbor Heights Elementary School
3701 SW 104TH
SEATTLE, WA. 98146

January 16, 1997

I sent you a Parent Bulletin yesterday, but a few things have come up since then that I wanted you to know about.

Program Time Changes

We are going to start our Martin Luther King Jr. assembly at 2:00 p.m. on Friday. A presentation of five art projects will follow.

Kindergarten parents: The nurse from Children's Hospital who was planning to visit our p.m. classes at 1:30 on Friday will be coming at 1:15 instead. Feel free to join us for this presentation on leukemia.

Whooping Cough

Two children in our school (one in Rooms 15, one in Room 25) have been diagnosed with whooping cough (also called pertussis). This is a highly contagious illness which can effect both children and adults - even those who have had all of their proper immunizations (DPT shot). If your child develops a persistent cough followed by cold-like symptoms you should have him/her seen by a doctor. Sometimes the cough is followed by gagging, vomiting or a high pitched whoop. There is usually little or no fever associated with this illness, but the illness is serious. If you have a question about pertussis you can call the health department at 296-4949 or 296-2774.

Pre-concert Recital

Nine student volunteers from Room 25 will perform on Saturday, February 1st in the Opera House. Their recital of recorder pieces will be performed in the lobby preceding the Seattle Symphony Orchestra's "Discover Music Concert" for young people. The Arbor Heights Recorder Ensemble will play between 9:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. for which they will receive free tickets to the symphony concert scheduled for 10 a.m.
