PTO Dine Out at Culvers
The PTO is hosting a dine-out event at Culver's this Wednesday night, September 28 from 5-8 p.m. We will be having some students and staff that will be there to help serve and assist in the restaurant. A percentage of all proceeds will be donated to the PTO. You do not need a flyer for your order to be counted. Avoid cooking on Wednesday and support our PTO.
AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITIES
Remember to sign up for After School Activities before 1:45pm on Monday's, Wednesday's and Thursday's.
The updated ASA webpage is now live on our SWM website. You can get to the After School Activities page by CLICKING HERE. We have created this video that explains some basic navigation tools so students understand how to use it.

First Intramural Began 9/19
Cross Country. Open to all grade levels and will practice on Mondays until the district meet on 11/2.
Students must sign up each day of practice in order to stay. They can do so through the ASA website.
Check the calendar for practice dates, sport information, and meet date/location.
Flu Shot Clinic for Students:
Southwest Middle School will be offering a voluntary “flu shot” (influenza vaccine) clinic at school on Wednesday, October 19th, from 1-2:30 pm.
The influenza vaccine is one of the best ways to prevent getting “the flu” - a respiratory viral illness that can cause mild to severe illness. The Visiting Nurse Association (VNA) will be administering the vaccines. These flu shots are available for Southwest Middle School students and staff.
If you would like your student to be vaccinated during our clinic, please complete the authorization form (see link below). Please complete a separate authorization form for each student to be vaccinated. Call nurse Jacobs if you need a paper copy of the authorization sent home with your student.
There is no cost for a child to receive the vaccine if they have either Medicaid, no health insurance, or any of the following health insurance coverage: Aetna; Anthem - Blue Cross and Blue Shield (no EPOs); Cigna (no EPOs); Coventry; Essence; Healthlink; Humana; United Health Care- including Allsavers, Golden Rule, UMR and GEHA; Medicare Part B.
If a child has health insurance and it is not one of the above plans, then the cost is $22.00 for the quadrivalent flu shot or $25.00 if you need the preservative-free vaccine.
Checks should be made out to the VNA or you may send the exact cash amount- no change is available.
The authorization form (see the link or your student can pick up a copy from the nurse’s office), a copy of your health insurance card, and payment, when applicable, must be turned in to the nurse by Thursday, October 13th so that we can give the VNA an accurate count of how many vaccines we will need.
If you have any questions, contact Nurse Jacobs at 314-415-7329.
