Did you know that the blue circle is the universal symbol for diabetes? Throughout the month of November, the NMS Health Awareness Club has sponsored a contest to see who can find all the blue circles posted throughout the school.The blue circles represent Diabetes Awareness. The circles are placed in all areas of our school, and it’s our students’ job to find them all! The person whose number is closest to the correct number of circles earns a reward. The American Diabetes Association reports that 9.3% of Americans are diagnosed with diabetes which includes 208,000 youth. To learn more, go online and visit the website for the American Diabetes Association. Students, make sure to turn in your “blue circle count” to Mrs. Larochelle. Also, keep an eye out for other activities we will be doing!
