  • October School Nurse of the Month   

    Nurse Tamara Dent was chosen as School Nurse of the Month based on her dedication to Warren Road Elementary and for going above and beyond what is called for in her daily work.  She organized a drive that collected over 400 toothbrushes, stickers, and dental hygiene booklets and gave them out instead of candy on Halloween. She even dressed up as the "Tooth Fairy."  The toothbrushes came from donations from staff and a couple of local dentists' offices.
