Thank YOU

We wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for their participation in the Jingle Stick fundraiser this year. As you might recall, all profits from the Jingle Spirit Stick fundraiser went to Servant's Heart to help local children have a warm and merry Christmas. With your help, we were able to assist 18 children! WOW.

Thank you very much for being so wonderful!

Hat Day

Your child can wear a hat to school with the purchase of the $5 charity spirit stick or .50 cent donation!


Burr, it is cold outside!

Please remember that your child will be attending recess outdoors any day that the temperature is 32 degrees or above. This means your child will need his/her coat, hats and gloves!

Mobile Dentist

Friday, Feb. 7th, 9pm

5249 Hornet Avenue

Beech Grove, IN

The Mobile Dentist will be at Hornet Park on Friday, February 7th. Paperwork for this event will go home shortly. Please read all of the paperwork and turn it back into school. Please contact the Hornet Park office if you have any questions regarding this event.

Extra Clothes

Now is the perfect time to send in an extra set of clothes for your child. Please send in a pair of pants and a shirt/sweatshirt. These items will be left in your child's cubby.

Why do you need extra clothes at school? It is simple....accidents happen! We have potty accidents, milk spills, art class mishaps and many other reason why your child might need a new set of clothes. If we do not have clothes in your child's cubby, you will get a phone call from the nurse and you will have to bring clothes to the school. All the while, your poor child will be sitting in the nurse's office and no one wants that!

If you have any questions about this please contact Mrs. Borgert at 317-780-5050.
