A letter from our President, Amy Wehr

Welcome to the 2019-20 School Year!

Hello All,

I’m Amy Wehr, your SLSSNA president for the next year. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have
questions- about the organization or if you’d like to get more involved. We are always looking for
committee members.

Speaking of looking, we are also looking for those among us doing a really extraordinary job. We award
deserving school nurses with School Nurse of the Year, School Nurse Administrator of the Year, Rising
Star Award, and Lifetime Membership- if you know an individual you think is deserving, please contact
me to nominate them!

I look forward to working with you all, and getting to know those of you I don’t yet. Please introduce
yourself at a meeting if we don’t know one another!

If your August is as busy as mine (which I’m guessing it IS!) please remember to take a few minutes every
day to care for yourself. Go for a walk, tend the garden, go to yoga, pet your dog, meditate, whatever it
is that rejuvenates you. Just like on the airplane, secure your oxygen mask first before assisting others!
We are caretakers and compassion fatigue is a real thing- don’t let it happen to you!

Wishing you all a happy, healthy school year!
