The 4th grade was enthralled with the Fur Trader convocation last Tuesday. Thank you, PTO for sponsoring this experience for us! Kevin Stonerock portrayed a 1700's Scottish fur trader from Montreal. He told us of his life trading with the Indians in what is now Indiana. Sharing trade goods, furs, music, and the vocabulary of fur-trading, Mr. Stonerock made this era come alive for our students. You could have heard a pin drop! We loved it!

Special Announcements

From Nurse Hannah

Medication Pick-up: We are asking for your assistance in picking up any medication that your child currently may have in the health care clinic by May 26, 2016.

We will not be sending any medication home with students, even over the counter medication. Parents must pick up ALL medication.

Any medicine that is not picked up by the end of the day will be destroyed by St. Vincent health professionals.

If you have any questions, please contact the clinic.

Immunization requirements for 2016-2017

State law stipulates that the medical records of children on file at school show the required immunizations have been completed by the 20th day of the school year. That day is Sept. 6th, 2016. Information regarding immunizations requirements for 2016-2017 can be found here.

Parents of children whose immunizations are not up-to-date should contact their health care provider or the Boone County Health Department to schedule an appointment for the necessary immunizations. Some pharmacies also carry the necessary vaccines.

If parents object to immunizations, a written objection must be on file in the school office by September 6th, 2016. Children who do not have up to date vaccination records by that date will not be allowed to return to school until the proper immunization information is on file. Students who have appointments with their health care provider after September 6th may present proof of that appointment in order to stay in school

If you have any questions, please contact Hannah Gerke, school nurse, at 317-873-2376. Thank you!
