Naas students receive dental sealants at school

First and second grade students at Naas Elementary are lucky enough to have the dentist visit them, instead of the other way around.

This week, on Oct. 13, 14 and 15, students at Naas will receive dental sealants.

Principal Kimberly Brooks said the service is provided by a state agency for qualifying areas. Naas is eligible because the majority of its students get their water from wells and lack fluoride treatment.

“It's pretty interesting as they come and set up a mini dental office,” she said. “There's solid data on kids with sealants having far less cavities than those who don't.”

Naas Elementary is located at 12240 S.E. School Avenue in Boring.

Parents send in study space photos to feature in organization lesson

Cedar Ridge Middle School students this week are learning about organization. And parents were asked to submit photos of their child’s workspaces.

Earlier in the week, in first-period advisory class, students learned how to use their planners more efficiently and organize their binders. On Wednesday, they will learn about organizing for a cause, such as breast cancer awareness.

Thursday will be devoted to time management and Friday will be about organizing your personal study space for success.

Principal Nicole Johnston said the school has received a plethora of pictures to share with classes as examples.
