DID YOU KNOW? by PTO
Did you know there is a PTO suggestion box located inside the school doors to the right? It is wrapped in emoji wrapping paper and just waiting for your ideas and comments. We will check the box during our monthly meetings. We look forward to hearing from you.
FIRST PTO MEETING OF THE YEAR
Please join us for coffee and pastries after you drop off your Angels at school on August 16, in the cafeteria. Meet the 2018-2019 PTO Board and stay for the first PTO meeting of the school year. Pastries and coffee will be served at 7:30 AM and the meeting will begin at 8:00 AM. Everyone is welcome!
Room Parents Needed
Looking for Room Parents for 5-8th Grades. If you are interested, please contact Elizabeth Kauffeld.
We have a family looking for afternoon assistance. They have 3 children that need transported to Guerin Catholic. They might be able to assist with morning carpool in return. Please contact Michelle Hanlin if you can help.
Beginning this fall, boys and girls grades K-5 are able to join Cub Scouts. If your family is interested in learning more about Scouting, come to the sign up night August 23, 6:30-8:30 PM in the SMG Parish Hall. Contact Andy Parrish or Stacy Collins for more information.
IS YOUR DAUGHTER INTERESTED IN GIRL SCOUTS?

All students, grades 5th through 8th, will be trained as altar servers on Friday, August 24th during school (following school Mass from 9 -10:30 am). This training will also qualify your child to serve at Lord’s Day Masses on Sunday provided that you the parent also: (a) registers your child to serve on Lord’s Day masses with Mrs. Downing in the parish office if they are not currently registered to serve AND (b) if your child is a new server, at least one parent must attend the mandatory parent training and orientation on Sunday August 26th at 12 noon in the Parish Narthex OR Thursday, September 27th at 7:00 pm in the Parish Hall. Also, if your child has already been trained in prior years but wants to receive more training to help feel more comfortable when serving, your child is welcome to attend the additional server training sessions being offered on the dates mentioned above and should report to the main church (not the parish narthex). If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Downing in the parish office at firstname.lastname@example.org or via voice mail at 317-867-3213 ext 1221. Please Note: These are the only server training sessions this year. Please note that there will be no other server training sessions until next Fall 2019.
Hearing Screens: State mandated hearing screens for all K, 1st, 4th, 7th and transfer students have been done by the Westfield speech/hearing team on Tuesday, August 13. Testing will continue the next 2 weeks for all students absent or needing repeat testing. Parents will only be contacted IF there are questionable results and/or further evaluation is needed.
Kindergarten Parents: Please complete and turn in the yellow vision form sent in your welcome packet. The yellow vision form must be completed by your child’s eye care professional. A complete modified clinical technique (MCT) exam is a State of Indiana requirement. Pediatricians are not able to perform this type of exam. An exam by an ophthalmologist or optometrist is required. The exam may be obtained at your private eye care specialist or at the optical departments in stores such as Walmart or Target. Please call the nurse office for any questions or if financial assistance is needed.
