HSE Schools Community Bulletin Board

Want to know what new and exciting things are happening in 2018? Check out the CBB!

HSE Schools has created a Community Bulletin Board on its district website. This will serve as a central location to find information about activities and events promoted by organizations that serve our students and their families. This is where the Fishers Library, YMCA, S.P.O.R.T.S. and other groups' registration information will be located.

6th Grade Field Trip to Fall Creek Junior High

On February 6 2018, the 6th grade class will walk across the street to Fall Creek Junior High to take a tour of the school. This is a great opportunity for the students to get acquainted with the layout of the school and meet the staff, making the transition smoother for next year. Each student is required to have a permission slip on file prior to the field trip. The permission slip can be found via the link below or on our website. They are due back by February 1st.

Permission Slip Due by 2/1/18

Notes from the Nurse


It is never too soon to start planning for next school year! The Indiana State Department of Health requires all students who will be in 6th grade for the 2018-2019 school year to receive 2 additional vaccines prior to the start of the school year. Your child will be eligible to receive these immunizations when he/she is eleven years of age. The additional vaccines are:

-- Meningococcal vaccine

-- Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria & pertussis) booster

NEW for next year: All 6th graders are required to have received TWO doses of HEP A.

Immunizations can be obtained at the office of your family physician, pharmacy walk-in clinics, the Hamilton County Health Department (317-776-8500), or the Marion County Health Department (317-221-2000). The Hamilton County Health Department does require on-line registration for new clients.

Please be sure to send an updated shot record to FCI, Attention Carol Gump, School Nurse. Records may be hand delivered, mailed, faxed, or emailed (cgump@hse.k12.in.us).

If you have questions or concerns, please call Carol Gump, FCI School Nurse.

Creating Positive Relationships (CPR)

Creating Positive Relationships (CPR) will be hosting a Parent Seminar for 5th grade parents on Tuesday, February 27 from 6-7pm in the cafeteria. At this parent support meeting, you will learn strategies to begin conversations to help your child navigate the changes that occur physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially during puberty. While this evening is designed for 5th grade parents specifically, all parents are welcome.

Actual CPR lessons will not be taught in 5th grade, but will be taught in 6th grade during PE class. More information on the 6th grade CPR lessons will be provided in the coming weeks.

Congratulations to the November Students of the Month!

The FCJH Band, Choir, and Orchestra Programs WANT YOU! You have an exciting opportunity to participate in band, choir, or orchestra next year at FCJH. Participants will learn how to read music and how to play an instrument or develop your abilities as a vocalist. Classes will meet every day at FCJH just like any other academic class. Every student at FCJH receives SOAR time (comparable to our current SLT time), even the students in a performance ensemble!!!!!

Students who are not currently in band, choir, or orchestra have the opportunity to join at FCJH.

“Research shows that students who participate in musical ensembles at school have higher attendance rates and test scores. Even more, new studies show that making music with peers as part of the school day can lead to increased levels of empathy and can lead to making friends faster!”

All you need to do is put band, choir, or orchestra on your schedule as an elective! Students who are currently in band or orchestra simply need to write down band or orchestra to continue to participate next year!

Grab your friends and don’t miss out on all of the fun! COME BE IN THE PERFORMING ARTS!!

Students in the FCJH Band, Choir, and Orchestra take a trip to Kings Island at the end of the school year!

For questions or more information please contact Mr. Waltz, Mr. Spidel, Ms. Yoder, or Mr. Wirtz!
