Build Our Kids Success

To all our Clara Barton Families:

Many of you may be aware of the BOKS program which Mrs. Bennett, Mrs. Thornton, and myself have been offering for the past few years at Clara Barton. For those who do not know BOKS, it is a before school physical activity program. According to the BOKS philosophy, the program helps to prepare children for a day of learning and is an important step in helping children gain an appreciation of the benefits of exercise and healthy choices.

We had just started a new BOKS session before our lives were turned upside down by the COVID-19 (Corona virus) pandemic. I know you all have been provided with great online learning resources. However, I wanted to make you aware of the BOKS at home site. This site gives you all the opportunity to incorporate physical activities, nutrition bits, and mindfulness into your new home-schooling routines. I hope some of you will be able to take advantage of this resource.

Please know that you are all missed and thought of each day by all of the Clara Baton Staff. Also if any of you have any questions or concerns related to this program or any other health issues, I am still available to you all by email at

Be safe and well,

Kathleen Schoemer, RN, MSN, CPNP
