FROM THE PRINCIPAL –

 

Hello All!

THE HUMAN AUDITORY DEVELOPMENT LAB AT BOYS TOWN NATIONAL RESEARCH HOSPITAL IS CONDUCTING A RESEARCH STUDY TO DEVELOP BETTER METHODS FOR TESTING HEARING IN CHILDREN WHO HAVE DIFFICULTY MAKING CLEAR RESPONSES TO SOUND.

Yesterday Heather Porter from Boys Town National Research Hospital came in to talk with the staff about a research project they are working on in regards to hearing in developmentally disabled children. They are looking for some children to work with at this time.
 

The children may have normal hearing or a hearing loss-or maybe because of communication and tradition avenues of testing, you just aren't sure. Participation last 1-2 hours and requires 1 visit to the lab at 555 North 30th Street. Their staff are experienced in working with this population of children and will be accommodating to their specific needs. Children receive $15 per hour for their assistance. There are appointment available weekdays, evenings and Saturday mornings. If you are interested in this opportunity, please call Heather at 531-355-6625.

 

Please remember that, in the case of inclement weather, if Omaha Public Schools close, then Omaha Catholic Schools will close – including Madonna School.

 

Check out our Facebook page – Madonna School Parents Group – by requesting access from Peg through your Facebook account. 

 

Please make note that we have 4 Dress Down days for $1.00 in January – the 10th, 17th, 24th and 31st.    The money raised will go towards the Madonna offering at the Catholic Schools Week 8th Grade Mass at St. Cecelia’s Cathedral on February 1st.
