Health Careers Club had guest speakers (Diana Speck and Maureen Nicolls) from KSB with Teresa Stump, Center Director from the Northwest Illinois Area Health Education Center on 12/7. The students loved listening to and interacting with them as they described and showed students what they do.
The application for the 2019 Rural Health Careers Camp is now available on the National Center for Rural Health Professions website!
The Rural Health Careers Camp will be held June 24-27, 2019 at Rockford University. It is a four-day, overnight camp where students will participate in healthcare-related activities and learn what it means to be a rural healthcare professional! We are looking for rising freshman, sophomore and junior students from rural areas who have interest in health-related professions. Approximately 55 students from high schools in the region will be chosen for this exciting and competitive opportunity!
At OCUSD, we want to teach our students and families the importance of empathy and understanding the difference between peer conflict and bullying. Conflict is a natural part of life that can cause change and growth with a person. Conflict is not bullying. Bullying occurs repeatedly by the same person, and the intended outcome is to exert power and hurt the other student either physically or mentally. Attached is an infographic that shows the difference between the two as well as strategies to use if your child is found in a situation where they feel they are being bullied. Please know that at OCUSD, we take bullying seriously, and when we confirm that it has occurred, students receive discipline. We cannot share with families/third parties other students’ discipline. If there is a problem, please reach out to your child’s teacher or principal.
