Shining Star News
Re-imagining the Star in 2016! Week of May 16-20
Attention 6th grade parents:
Students need to have a Tdap immunization before entering 7thgrade. If you have a question about whether or not your child has it on file with the school check skyward.
Rising Star School Nurse
Immunizations and physicals are available in six of our elementary schools!
Note the following:
- This opportunity is available for any SMSD student.
- There are two difference documents (distribute both):
- Health Partnership Clinic of Johnson County
- Johnson County Department of Health and Environment
- Both sites will provide immunizations and physicals for students from undocumented families
We still have SCRIP gift cards available for sale before the end of the school year. I can also place orders and get the order back to you before the last day of school.
Perfect for stocking up for the summer! Also, great ideas for teacher gifts, graduation gifts, birthday gifts, etc.
Staff members qualifying for PTA Staff Grants:
There IS still time to use SCRIP for your staff grant.
*Please submit orders to me by Monday, May 16th.

3rd Grade Butterfly Release
The butterflies were released on Tuesday. Our "babies" are free and enjoying the honeysuckle bush! What a beautiful insect that goes through such an amazing metamorphosis. The 3rd graders will miss watching their beautiful transformation!

For our students allergic to peanuts
Kellogg’s and Keebler recently added peanut flour to some of their snacks, so they are no longer considered safe for peanut allergies. Here is the link listing which snacks can no longer be considered safe for those students to eat.
