Charity Day is tomorrow. The charity this month is addressing Global Goal #13 – Climate Action. Our charity is going towards Pope Francis’ Global Catholic Climate.
— Pope Francis told us: “On climate change there is a clear, definitive and ineluctable ethical imperative to act.” There are lots of ways in which you could join the movement and start turning the tide for climate justice.

Attendance Line: Parents this is a friendly reminder to call all absences, late arrivals and K-5th grade homework requests into the nurse attendance line 896-5582 then press 5.

Immunization notice for kindergarten and 5th grade parents:
Students entering kindergarten in Indiana are now required to receive 2 Hepatitis A vaccines given at least 6 months apart. This is a new requirement as of 2014. Parents please schedule your kindergarten doctor appointments early so your child receives these 2 vaccines by the first day of school in August.
11 year olds entering 6th grade in Indiana are now required to receive the meningitis vaccine and an updated tetanus/pertussis vaccine known as “Tdap.” The “tetanus booster” cannot be received until after the 10th or 11th birthday (depending on the drug manufacturer). This vaccine has dramatically lowered the number of pertussis cases in middle school and high school students in Indiana. Make sure BOTH vaccines are received before entering 6th grade. Please ask your health care provider for a copy of the immunization record and bring the record to school. Your health care provider should enter the shots into the state immunization registry. To avoid any discrepancies a “paper copy” from your doctor will help us keep all records up to date.
