Health Office Reminders:  Wash your hands often to stay healthy!  Hand washing is one of the best ways to protect yourself from getting sick.  Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds – use soap!  Need a timer?  Sing “Happy Birthday” twice.  Keeping hands clean is one of the most important things we can do to stop the spread of germs.

The deadline for donations will be Friday, March 13, 2020.  Below is a list of items that the soldiers are in need of.  This is a much shorter list than before, but please keep your donations to items on the list as it will help with the organization and mailing process.  Please turn in any donations to the Menomonie Middle School front office. We appreciate all your help in supporting our local deployed service men and women.

Men's boxers size M and L
