Ada Elementary Classroom Helps Raise Awareness About Esophogitis Disorders

Article by Jan Holst – Advance Newspaper

Sometimes fourth-graders learn about something most adults know nothing about. When an Ada Elementary classroom learned about eosinophilic esophogitis (EOE), they knew they wanted to help spread awareness, and they found a way to surprise one of their friends with a special birthday party as well.

Eli Luyckx, who turned 10 on Jan. 31 is in nearly every way just like all children. The son of Michael and Melissa Luyckx, he is the oldest of four with three sisters. He is a Cub Scout with Troop 3290 in Ada. He loves his family, grandparents, and cousins and one of his favorite activities is tubing with cousins in the summer. He likes to fix things, tinker and build and has been known to sit for hours taking apart an old computer, said his dad. Eli collects stuffed bunnies and really likes playing Minecraft.

At the age of 3, he was diagnosed with EOE, an extreme food allergy, which basically prohibits him from eating. Since 2010, he has been a patient at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, which, according to Michael Luyckx, is world renowned for treating the rare disease.

There is no known cure but the disease can be managed if offending foods are determined and eliminated. Read more

National School Counseling Week honors school counselors and their positive impact on students’ lives

Our school district has an amazing group of school counselors who are talented, caring, dedicated individuals. School counselors have a tremendous impact on helping students achieve success in the classroom and in life. They help build strong futures for our students.

People may wonder just what it is that school counselors do on a daily basis. Gone are the days of school counselors sitting in their office simply handing out college applications, making schedule changes for students who want to drop a class, or meeting with the troublemakers in the school. Today’s school counselors are vital members of the education team. They help all students in the areas of academic achievement, personal/social development, and career development, ensuring today’s students become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow.
