September Newsletter

Hornet Park

Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)

What's the role of a PTO? That role is to continue to build a community where our kids know that they're not alone. Our goal is to show our children that not only are they receiving support from both school and home, but that we are on the same team. We need to show our students that our goal is to make sure they come to school and know that they are walking into a happy and successful environment! Please join us on September 1st, at 6:00pm in the Hornet Park cafeteria.

FREE Preschool Speech Therapy

FREE Preschool Speech Therapy!

Beech Grove City Schools provides speech and language therapy for pre-school children who have difficulty saying sounds and words, following directions, talking in short sentences, or are stuttering. Therapy is done at Hornet Park Elementary by a licensed Speech/Language Pathologist and is free of charge.

If one or more of the below statements applies to your child, you may want to consider speech therapy for your child.

  1. My child does not imitate sounds or words.
  2. My child is only understood by family members.
  3. My child cannot say all of the following sounds: p, b, m, n, t, d, h, w.
  4. My child cannot follow directions.
  5. My child speaks in 1-2 word phrases.
  6. My child cries or shows frustration when trying to speak.
  7. My child points at things to communicate rather than use words.

A Speech/Language Pathologist can test what your child understands, what your child says, and your child’s speech sounds and words. The testing will help determine if speech therapy is needed.

Please contact Chris McGown, Speech/Language Pathology Department Chair for Beech Grove City Schools, so that your child can have a jump start before he or she starts kindergarten.
