Health Screenings

White Pine County School District routinely performs hearing and vision screening during certain grade levels required by the Nevada Revised Statues, for IEP’s, or as requested by the teaching staff to identify student who have problems or might be at risk. The vision and hearing of students is vital, especially for classroom learning, so it is important to identify any barrier to learning that can be corrected.  The above health screenings were performed on 12/01/2020 and 12/02/2020 on all Pre-K, Kindergartners and 4th graders. A referral letter  will be sent out to students who did not pass one or more  of the above screenings. If you do not receive a letter, your student passed all of the screenings. 
Any questions please call Heather Williams RN at 775-289-4811 ext 5105. 



December Leader in Me Theme

This month’s Panther Habit is “First things First”.  Putting First things First can be HARD WORK, especially as children are looking forward to Winter Break.  It is hard to focus, work hard, and get priorities accomplished when they see that SHINEY FUN SEASON coming fast.


SO, we are going to focus DAILY and remember what COUNTS.  We have provided a 12 days of Kindness Holiday CHALLENGE for all students and staff that focuses on OTHERS, not just themself.   The advent tree houses a different goal of kindness each day before our Winter Break.   Have your students check daily to see what the daily CHALLENGE is.  CAN YOU accomplish all the goals by putting First things First?


DECEMBER CHALLENGE - Keep track of how many of your students accomplish their daily goal.  At the end of December report the percentage of possible goals your class accomplished.  The class with the highest percentage of Kindness acts will receive a popcorn party On January 4 when we get back from school.


We would encourage you to help your students focus on putting FIRST THINGS FIRST in their academics as well to keep our excitement in control for the coming season.







We love, value, and teach by nurturing the whole child.  We will change the world, one child at a time.



All children will know they are valued and loved, empowering them to become exceptional learners and successful leaders.  They will show consistent improvement on measured assessments ensuring they are grade level prepared to enter middle school by the end of 5th grade.



When children know they are loved and valued, they will learn to love themselves and the world around them. This will give them the intrinsic desire to be the best they can. It will enrich their academic, social and personal lives, creating successful individuals and leaders.

Panthers practice
