Reminders from the School Nurse
All students entering Kindergarten, 6th Grade, and high school need physicals with their shot records on file. Any student entering the school district for the first time, regardless of grade, also needs a physical with his/her shot record on file. All students entering Kindergarten, 3rd, and 7th Grade need dental exams on file. Students will be given forms prior to leaving school in June.
Students who will be taking medication, such as an inhaler, while in school, need a completed MED-1 form on file. This form contains the doctor's order and gives me and the school your permission to treat your child in your absence. This form is available in the main office.
Have a safe and healthy summer and don't forget your sunscreen!
Congratulations to our 2014 Reading Olympics Team who participated in the Reading Olympics held on May 13th at Holy Family University. They won all three of their rounds and brought home a blue ribbon by answering 63 out of 65 questions correctly! Our Reading Olympians for 2014 are Grace Scanlon (Team Captain), Kelly Devlin, Liam Farrell, Kayleigh McCrossan, Jaida Opoku-Anim, and Gavin Salamone in 6th Grade, Carly Gilbert, Thomas McCrossan, Jenna McIntyre, Kirsten Seif, and Jenna Simon in 5th Grade, and Andrew Wang in 4th Grade. These students each read at least 10 books on the Reading Olympics list and spent many lunch periods meeting with Mrs. Prigge in preparation for this yearly competition.
We want to say a big "THANK YOU" to Mrs. Prigge for all her hard work with the students this year and for taking time out of her busy schedule to prepare a new team for this event each year!
Again, congratulations to the St. Martha's Tigers Reading Olympians on a job well done!
Congratulations to Hailey Malandra who was selected by the Mayor's Office of Education for "Making a Splash in Science." She attended an award ceremony on May 2 at City Hall where she had the opportunity to meet Mayor Michael Nutter. Way to go, Hailey! We are so proud of you!
Cow Chip BINGO
In order to guarantee a $10,000 prize, Home & School has rescheduled its 1st Annual Cow Chip BINGO for Sunday, September 7th from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. The cost is $20 per square (ticket) and it works like this: The rectory lawn will be divided into a grid of 1000 squares. A cow will be released on the lawn at 1:00 p.m. and will graze until depositing its winning "chip." If the cow does not deposit a chip by 3:00 p.m., a winner will be chosen by a random drawing. In the event the chip lands on more than one square, the square with the larger amount wins! The Grand Prize is $10,000!!!
Tickets for Cow Chip BINGO can be purchased in school through June 11th and at our Scrip Office over the summer. Please make checks payable to St. Martha Home & School Association and, as always, thanks for your support!
