School Smiles

We are excited to offer dental care to Academy of Science and Entrepreneurship students through a program called School Smiles. Available services include cleanings, x-rays, comprehensive exams, fluoride treatments and sealants.

School Smiles will treat both insured and uninsured students. If your student has either Medicaid or private insurance, you will provide insurance information on the registration form. If your student does NOT have insurance, you have the option of paying a reduced fee of $49, which covers cleaning, x-rays, fluoride and exam. The $49 must be paid before the student is seen. If you cannot afford the $49 fee, School Smiles has a grant option available on a limited basis. After the initial exam, School Smiles will create a treatment plan and advise you if your student needs follow up dental services such as: restorations, including fillings and crowns; or extractions.

School Smiles will come to the school two times a year. The first visit this year will be October 11th. You will be notified of the appointment time for your child.

Attached is a registration form if you are interested in having your child receive dental services at school.

Thank you for helping us keep your child safe, healthy, and ready for success!

ASE PARKING TAGS


If your student will be driving to school, they must have a parking tag on their car. Car permit applications are in the front office. Please stop by and pick one up. Only those drivers who have an application on file and valid permit may drive to school and park their vehicle on school property. Car permit applications must have a signature from a parent or guardian.


IMPORTANT REMINDER

The Academy doors will not open for students until 7:45am. Please do not drop your student off before this time. The custodian needs ample time to sanitize the building and prepare for hand washing before students arrive.


TARDIES

Students will now be asked to sign a tardy log if they are late to school. Students should be in their classroom no later than 8:10. Students that are tardy will have this noted in their attendance.

SEL Corner!

Welcome to the SEL Corner!

We believe that students deserve a safe and inspiring school culture and future where there is empathy, respect for one another, and opportunities for all students to grow academically, behaviorally, social, and emotionally. Through the MCCSC’s Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) Initiative, our students and teachers will learn and practice social and emotional skills through the use of the Second Step or School-Connect curriculum. Some examples of these skills are: self-awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. Discussions that focus on creating a supportive learning community, developing self-awareness and self-management, building relationships and resolving conflicts, and preparing for college and the workforce are happening throughout the school year. We see application of these skills across home and school and encourage you to talk with your adolescent about what they are learning with Second Step or School-Connect.
