A note from our Clinic-Important information Regarding Head Lice
SLS Student Council supports Sole Hope
On March 3, 2016, Middle School Student Council, Elementary Student Council and KWHS International Club worked together and cut out 70 pairs of shoes from denim jeans.  Working with Sole Hope,  the shoe patterns will be sent to Uganda and made into shoes for young children.  Feet are the primary place simple infections start and a perfect home for parasites. By being educated on these parasites, washing their feet, and wearing a pair of Sole Hope shoes, children can avoid many of these conditions.   Great job Student Council and KWHS International Club!
