Progress Reports & Skyward
Teachers will have sent home paper reports for students with a D+ or below the week of August 31st.
Did you know you can set Skyward up to email you a weekly update of your child's grades? Here is a link with instructions how to do this.
This is a step by step view of how parents can go to Skyward at any time to check your child's grades.
Please contact Mrs. Collinsworth if you have any questions or have issues with your Family Access Login.

Notes from our Nurse
Cleaning out your closets for the Fall? The clinic is in need of size 8-12 pants for both boys and girls that students may have outgrown. If you're not going to use them as hand-me-downs, please think of donating them! Thanks! Please make sure clothes are clean and school appropriate!
Attention all 6th grade Parents: Please make sure your child receives the Meningococcal & T-dap vaccines. These are Indiana State required shots, after age 11. If you have a religious/medical exemption, I need paperwork signed and returned to the school. Thanks to all who have turned in their vaccination paperwork; I am working diligently to get every date entered into our system!

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.
- My child does not imitate sounds or words.
- My child is only understood by family members.
- My child cannot say all of the following sounds: p, b, m, n, t, d, h, w.
- My child cannot follow directions.
- My child speaks in 1-2 word phrases.
- My child cries or shows frustration when trying to speak.
- 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.
