From the School Nurse


Parents of 5th Graders:

Students need additional immunizations before they enter 6th grade. The Indiana State Dept. of Health's additional required shots are Tdap, and MCV4 for all 6th grade students. Please contact your student's doctor as soon as possible to schedule an appointment before school begins in July 2018. If your student has had these immunizations, please send a copy of the updated shots to the clinic. Even if your student will not be 11 before the beginning of 6th grade, the required shots are due prior to 6th grade. After your student goes to the appointment, please bring a copy of updated shot record by my clinic so I can add the updated record to your student's medical file which will be forwarded on to the middle school.


MCHD has appointments and walk in clinic hours, and the cost is $20 regardless of number of immunizations needed. The closest MCHD office is located at 505 E. National Ave, and the phone number is 317-221-5700. If you have questions or need a copy of your student's shot record you may call me in the clinic 317-860-4289 to arrange to pick up a copy or have a copy sent home.

Art News

Attention doodlers! Google is holding its annual competition called, Doodle for Google. Students from around the world are encouraged to create a Google design with this year's theme, 'What Inspires You?'. Five finalists will be sent to California to meet the doodlers for Google and the finalist will win a $30,000 scholarship and a $50,000 tech grant for our school. Each student has been given a template but it's not required that you use it. If you want to create a Google doodle out of Legos, wood, or any other material, take a high quality picture of your design and attach it to the information sheet that was sent home. Parents, don't forget to sign your child's design. Send it back to Mrs. McQueen by the end of February and I will send them off to be judged. Please see me if you have questions or would like help with your design. You can also check out the website, www.doodles.google.com for more information. I can't wait to see what inspires our students and their great art!

JAR WARS is Coming!

February 19th – February 23rd


Jar Wars is a Student Council sponsored event that has each classroom competing to see who can raise the most money. Adams Elementary Student Council will be sponsoring a Jar Wars Competition starting on Monday, February 19th and ending on Friday, February 23rd to raise money for Riley Children’s Hospital. We have paired up again with Franklin Central High School’s Riley Dance Marathon and all of the proceeds from this year’s Jar Wars Competition will benefit the children at Riley Children’s Hospital. More information will be sent home with your child about Jar Wars the week of February 12th.

Safety Reminder

For the safety of your student please do not drop your student off at the front curb. All students dropped off should be in the car rider line at the back of the building. If your student is late they must be walked into the building and signed in.
