SHAC/CATCH #3 Meeting Minutes 02-25-2019


                The Third School Health Advisory Council meeting of the 18-19 school year was held on Monday February 25, 2019  from 6-7pm in the High School Teachers Lounge. The Avery SHAC Vision/Mission statement was read. Minutes from the first meeting held on Monday December 10, 2018 included; The EKG clinic that was in September, Flu Shot Clinic in October, Go Blue for Diabetes Awareness in December, Handwashing teaching with the Elementary Students, CATCH Theme 2 was discussed, the floor was open for discussion.

                February 6th and 7th we held an Asthma Clinic put on by the Spirit of St. Michaels. We saw over 20 students at the clinic. They were able to do pulmonary function tests, update Asthma action plans, prescribe needed asthma control medications, and give out free spacers to be used with the student’s inhalers. By participating in this program our school also receives grant money that can be used for the Health Program at Avery ISD. The past 2 years we have used this money to fund the Student Athletes EKG’s that are done in the fall. We have also decided to use money left over to offer a CPR certification class to interested High School Students.              

The SHAC students will be going on a hospital Tour on March 20, 2019 to a UT Hospital in Tyler, TX. We have 6 students going on the tour and they are all considering Health Care Professions.

National Childrens Dental Health Month is February. Students were given handouts with activities for them to do. There are also great websites for families to visit. Colgate.com

                Avery ISD SHAC will be hosting a Spring Health Fair Thursday March 7, 2019 from 5-7pm in the cafeteria on the same night as the Spring Open House. We will ask vendors to provide a door prize. We have about 17 vendors and will have our SHAC student help with the sign in table and door prizes.
