Ronald McDonald House Pop Tab Collection

Sibley Elementary will continue collecting pop tabs this year!

At the end of the school year the tabs are sold and the money given to the Ronald McDonald House of Rochester. Children and their families can stay at the Ronald McDonald House when the child is experiencing an illness that requires a lengthy visit to the hospital. Save your pop tabs at home and when you have a bunch, send them to school with your child. They will put them in a container in their classroom.

Thank you for helping!

Vision and Hearing Screenings

Vision and hearing screening will take place on Tuesday October 11, 2016. The Minnesota Department of Health recommends screening the first grade students, the third grade students and the fifth grade students.

Rescreening will take place on Wednesday, October 25, 2016, for those students needing to be rescreened. If a problem is detected, you will be sent a letter referring you to your physician for further evaluation.

If you would like to volunteer for the vision and hearing screening, please contact the school nurse, Jane Ehlers, at 507-645-3475.
