I have a look who lost a tooth wall in the hallway and hang printed/cut-out teeth with students name on it when they loose teeth.
I pass out veggie/fruit stickers randomly in the cafeteria to students that have veggies/fruit on their tray.
I send out random pop quizzes via email for teacher in regards to things like "where is the AED machine located", basic CPR and EPIPEN instructions, etc. First one with all answers correct gets a prize! Teachers rush to my office for this lol. It's pretty fun and helps everyone stay informed.
I send out monthly newsletters for staff each month via email. They love this as well. It's informative and related to what's going on "health wise" or correlates to the health topic of the month.
My students that wear glasses and 1). KEEP UP WITH THEM 2). CAN BE EXPECTED TO WEAR THEM EVERYDAY 3). DO NOT REPEATEDLY BREAK THEM ON PURPOSE - get a pizza party at the end of the year. I tell them about it at the start of the year so they are encouraged to be responsible with their glasses. They look forward to this all year long. I put a class list in the teachers box at the end of the year and the teacher highlights which ones get to participate (since they are in the classroom with them and know).
This year I am going to set up a table strictly for nursing/health related information for the school year at Meet the Teacher night. I will have a "meet the nurse" sign lol.
I hang information all over the school. EX: there are signs by ALL of the water fountains that say "Do you have a headache? DRINK MORE WATER. Not drinking enough water is the number 1 cause of headaches - this is called DEHYDRATION. Love, your school nurse" they are colorful and students notice them, helps them to increase fluids and be educated. Signs in gym for nosebleed rules, SS of concussions. Signs in bathroom for hand washing, etc. You get the drift.
My bulletin board outside is decorated with colorful pom-poms and says "students LEARN BETTER when they FEEL BETTER" and it stays up all year long, but I do add smaller bulletin boards with information for autism awareness month, etc.
I have a "when the nurse is out" binder in my office for documentation, protocols, my contact information, etc.
I make field trip survival kits for field trips with all the thingggggs.
I organize a biggest loser competition for all staff. THIS IS A HIT! So much fun. I let everyone choose a "code name" for example: skinny minny, hangry, lovin' cupcakes, etc. and I make a chart to hang in the hallway that way everyone can track their progress but no one knows who is who. I have a teacher that lost 30 lbs last year and won! She ended up taking home like $400+. Crazy good turnout! We weigh in on Fridays in my office in the mornings.
I've never done classroom presentations but I am going to try to implement this next year! This is my 1st school year as a school nurse So next year I will start my 2nd school year. I plan to do more. I am not one to just sit in my office and wait for students. I love being out and about. I keep a walkie-talkie on me for emergencies. I love this job because I enjoy thinking outside of the box and it allows me to do that! I am also KG-4th grade so my ideas are geared towards the smaller population lol.
