New bus stop boundaries will encompass Keystone to the East, Raymond to the North, and Hoefgen to the South. Call 317-423-0204 for more information.

SENSE Charter now has a new Brownie troop that started this Monday. Thirteen 1st grade girls have the opportunity to participate where, in an accepting and nurturing environment, girls can build character and skills for success in the real world. Pictured here is the Circle and Friendship Squeeze. The Friendship Circle is often formed at the end of meetings or campfires as a closing ceremony. Everyone gathers in a circle; each girl crosses her right arm over her left and then holds hands with the person on each side of her. Once everyone is silent, one girl starts the friendship squeeze by squeezing the hand of the person to her left. One by one, each girl passes on the squeeze until it travels clockwise around the full circle.

The third-grade Brownie troop at The Orchard School, co-lead by Tiffany Turner, was working on their World of Girls Badge. To earn the badge they needed to hear a story, tell a story, and change the story. So they decided to share the story Kristie Sweeney had posted to Facebook last fall about our food pantry needs. After hearing the story, they shared it with their school community by hanging signs, passing out flyers, setting up collection bins, speaking about it at Town Hall Meetings, and writing articles for their weekly newsletter. As the collection bins got fuller, they got more excited and brought in many of their own donations. They not only helped our school community, but have brought more awareness to their community about our school. And for that we are most grateful for their generous support.

For more pics form the event visit: https://www.facebook.com/pg/cacafterschoolprograms/photos/?tab=album&album_id=2330687020493870 The Pinewood Derby is a racing event for unpowered, unmanned miniature cars. Pinewood derbies are often run by chapters (packs) of the Cub Scouts program of Boy Scouts of America. With the help of adults, Scouts build their own cars from wood, usually from kits containing a block of pine wood, plastic wheels, and metal axles. And then they decorate it. For the price of admission to this year's event, people could donate non-perishable food. The food was then donated to SENSE Charter and School 63 to help keep their pantry stocked. Thank you Boy Scouts of America Crossroads District and Josette Crawford, District Director for School & After-School Programs!

SENSE PARENTS!!! SENSE is excited to announce an online student registration/returning student validation system for the upcoming school year. The system is a secure and green process, which allows us to verify all student demographic, emergency and medical information for your child prior to the start of the new school year. The system will also allow you to electronically sign the annual permission forms for school district policies. In short, this online process replaces all the hard copy student registration and permission forms that your child brings home on the first day of school. There will also be a parent portal that will allow you to check your students progress online! We will be sending the information out via Email…. But we don’t have email addresses for all of you. Please contact the school at your convenience to update or provide an email address we can use. You can also just write it down and send it in to the office with your student. I know it’s early, but it takes a while to get the process set up and we want to make sure you do not miss out on any communications that might impact your students seat for next year! Thanks!

The Salvation Army Indiana Division has been providing Christmas assistance to the community for generations. This year with Angel Tree for 2018, they will be providing both vital needs and a joyful Christmas to children in families who qualify. Is my family eligible for assistance? Registration opens for Christmas on October 22nd. Angel Tree is designed to help families whose income falls below the 2018 United States Poverty Guidelines. The qualified income level is dependent upon the number of persons in your household, so visit aspe.hhs.gov/poverty-guidelines to determine whether your family qualifies. If you are already planning to apply for Christmas assistance from another agency or organization, please do not apply for Angel Tree, too. Our goal is to ensure that as many central Indiana children as possible are able to have a special Christmas. Which of my children are eligible for Angel Tree? Children ages 0-12 who are residents of Marion, Hamilton, and Johnson County Indiana, are eligible for assistance through the Angel Tree program. When can I sign up for Assistance? Angel Tree applications take place from October 22nd through November 2nd. Where can I sign up for Assistance? There are two Indianapolis locations where applicants can sign up. The times for visiting these locations is Monday - Friday from 9:00am-4:00pm. Thursday, 9:00am-4:00pm & 6:00pm-8:00pm. Saturday 9:00am-12:00pm. • The Salvation Army Fountain Square Corps Community Center at 1337 S. Shelby Street. • The Salvation Army Eagle Creek Corps Community Center at 4400 N. High School Road. What items must I bring with me in order to apply for Angel Tree assistance? All applicants must bring the following with them on the day they apply. Applications cannot be processed without these items. • Valid form of photo ID for applicant (examples: U.S. Driver’s License, U.S. Passport, Indiana State ID, School ID, Green Card, etc.) • Proof of residence (examples: utility bill, bank statement, etc.); must be within the last month before registering. • Proof of ALL income, earned and unearned (includes: check stubs, unemployment, SSI, pensions, veteran benefits, disability, SNAP, child support, TANF/AFDC, WIC, etc.); documents MUST have a dollar amount on them, as we cannot accept a SNAP card or appointment letter; SNAP cannot be your only form of income. • Proof of rent, mortgage, or subsidized housing (receipt, lease, or letter from landlord) • Proof of ALL other expenses (includes: car loan, medical bills, credit cards, other loans, etc.) • All current utility statements (includes: electric, water, gas, cable, phone, etc.) • Birth Certificates for all children to be registered. • List of all clothing and shoe sizes for children to be registered.

The Indy Eleven soccer supporters group, Slaughterhouse-19 (SH-19), helped us make our goal towards helping us feed the families of SENSE with a mammoth food drive at this Saturday’s game. Pablo Rodriquez is responsible for this act of kindness and generosity by hosting a tailgate where participants donated food and hygiene items. The result filled an SUV with much-needed items. Pictured here is Betzi Hernandez and her son Diego Fuentes. And yes, they were as happy as they look to receive this generous donation. They helped to bring in the donated items into our pantry on Saturday and assisted in getting it shelved. Ms. Hernandez is the new SENSE art teacher. Her son Diego attends SENSE in the 4th grade. Indy Eleven is an American professional team based in Indianapolis. The franchise plays its home games at Lucas Oil Stadium, with long-term plans of a new stadium in the city's downtown district. A heartfelt thank you to SH-19!

A team of Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance employees spent the morning volunteering at SENSE as part of the company’s IFBI Community program. Within a few hours the team transformed SENSE Charter. They worked on organizing storage closets, including the clothing and food pantries. They brought school supplies, food and hygiene items to donate to the school as well. The team put together shelving that they donated for better access to items. They weeded our grounds and created a study ramp for the garden area stairway, making it much easier to lead and unload. And if that wasn’t enough, they donated a new refrigerator to our food pantry. Wow. So needed. So appreciated

The construction on Shelby is going to block off the exit for the buses in the afternoons, so we will be moving Bus Pickup to the Front of the School (Pick up Only). The new process will start next Tuesday, Sept 4, 2018. 1. Car Rider Parents will stay in the parking lot and students will be loaded there. a. Students will gather in the New Cafeteria (by the front office) b. A Staff member will radio students to the Parking lot and load there. 2. Picker Upper and Walker Students will be dismissed to the OLD Cafeteria. (by the old front entrance) i. They will exit out that door and be directed towards the north Cross walk if needed. ii. Parents should wait by the old front entrance rather than by the new one. 3. Buses will line up in the “cut out”, in front of the school (on Barth), please do not block that area. This should have little or no impact on our SENSE Neighbors on Barth. At most there might be one bus staged just south of the parking lot, but not in front of any homes.

Hey Everyone! I know it's early, but some of you may be thinking about the upcoming school year. The good news is that as long as you've informed us that your student is returning for the 2018-2019 year, your student will have a seat! There is no need to apply through Enroll Indy for returning students. If for some reason, you did not tell us your student is returning, or if something has changed and you now wish to return, just give us a call (317-423-0204) or stop by and we'll assist Thanks!!

SEX ABUSE PREVENTION SESSION FOR FAMILIES Monday April 17, 2017 2:00-3:00 pm SENSE Charter. Check into the front office. Discussing sexual abuse with your child may be an uncomfortable and difficult thing to do, but the alternative puts them in potential harm. Chaucie’s Place’s Smart Steps: A Body Safety Program For Children™ has opened the door for you to start and continue these very important conversations with your child. You are invited to attend this informative workshop for parents and guardians. This is geared for parents with students in grades Kindergarten - third grade. But all are welcome. As a caring family member, neighbor or youth worker, you might be in an ideal position to see something that is not right in a child’s life. You can also call the Indiana Child Abuse and Neglect Hotline at 1-800-800-5556 and your local law enforcement agency to make a report or visit Prevent Child Abuse Indiana’s website at www.pcain.org for more information. It offers straightforward lists of physical and behavioral indicators. Please contact Kate Voss at 317.423.204 or kvoss@senseindy.org for more information

Our new car rider process will most likely continue through the end of the year. We will review it carefully over the summer and let you know if we’re able to make any changes and improvements for next year. In the meantime we don’t want anyone to receive any traffic or parking tickets so please be careful. If the car rider line in the Alley (by the Marathon), is stretching out onto Pleasant Run, please continue the line on the south side of Pleasant Run (facing east towards Shelby), and turning left into the Alley. This way the line will not back up and impede traffic on Shelby or block the entrance to our new Neighbor (Marathon Gas Station).
