The Thomas Smith Memorial Foundation and Hurley Medical Center are offering a FREE Teen Heart Health screening on Saturday, January 17th, 2015.  The screening will be held at Carmen Ainsworth Middle School in Flint.

 All screenings include an electrocardiogram.  A cardiac ultrasound will be performed if necessary.  Hurley cardiologists will be on site to interpret the result

Although it may be quite a drive for some of you, free heart screenings are very infrequently scheduled.  There have been no free screenings offered in the entire state since Beaumont’s Rochester screening in September.  Prior to that, some small screenings were offered in Muskegon over the summer, and Hurley held a screening in May.

Carpooling or bussing may be a great option – students may be screened without a parent present, as long as the registration paperwork has been completed and signed.

If you have any trouble registering or have any questions, please email me at rjorrey1@hurleymc.com and I will get it taken care of.  For more information, please visit www.TommysHeart.org.

Please share this information with your schools, youth groups, and community groups!

If your students are unable to attend, Beaumont does offer year-round screenings by appointment. From the Beaumont website:

You can have the screening performed, by appointment, at Beaumont, Royal Oak's Ernst Cardiovascular Center. Please note these are by appointment only and cost $25. Call 800-328-8542 to schedule.http://heart.beaumont.edu/upcoming-student-heart-screenings

SC Athletic Booster's Night Out

BNO is a time for adults in our community to come together and socialize. The tickets are $10 a piece, we have a DJ, food and door prizes. It is a BYOB event (but we have water and coffee). It is not a fundraiser....it is just something boosters have been doing for years. You don't have to be a booster member to come. We have a great time! Doors open at 7PM and goes until midnight!  For BNO tickets, contact a Boosters Board Member before they run out!  


CELLY ALERTS: 
OPT-IN TEXT ALERTS FOR CANCELLATIONS & EMERGENCY NOTIFICATION
In order to serve you better, we have created a texting option for our families to receive notifications via text on their phones.  This is an opt in program.
You may opt in by texting @swcrkCommunity to 23559.  To opt out of the service, text STOP to 23559. The texting program allows for Swartz Creek Schools to send text out only, this is not a program that allows Swartz Creek Schools to receive texts.
