News:

  1. ISTEP Preview:  

The opportunity for your child to show us what he/she has learned will be here before we know it.  The Indiana Department of Education has developed a website where parents can view sample ISTEP+ items.  We would encourage you to take a look at this site and discuss the importance of the exam with your child.

New this year:   ISTEP+ Online Tutorial – this walks you and students through the set-up of the test as well as the tools that are available for students to use.

These sample items can be found at: http://download.pearsonaccessnext.com/in/in-practicetest.html?links=1

  1. NWEA Testing Window:

Students will be finishing up the middle of the year MAP test next week.

  1. Breakfast & 2 Hour Delays:  

In the event of a 2 hour delay this year, breakfast will not be served on these days.  This is due to the fact that upon student arrival our lunch staff will already be in the process of prepping lunch.

  1. Toys for Tots:  

If you would like to make a donation to the cause, a collection box is available in the school office until December 11th.

  1. Clinic Reminder:  

All medication, including over the counter, requires a request to administer document to be completed and brought to school by a parent or guardian.  The request to administer form as well as quite a bit of other health related information can be found at the following link: http://www.gcsc.k12.in.us/?page_id=590.  Please note that cough drops are exempt from this policy.

News:

  1.  Student Competitions: 

It has been a great week for our students in their extra-curricular endeavors.  Last Saturday, our Robotics team participated in their first ever competition.  During this event, the team was named the “Judge’s Pick” for their sportsmanship and hard work.  Congratulations to them and their sponsors, Mrs. Smith and Mr. Cooper.

Last evening, our spell bowl teams represented MIS unbelievably well.  The 4th grade team placed 1st in the local competition which placed them #9 in the state out of 78 teams.  Our 5th/6th grade team tied for first at the local competition, but were beaten out via the tie breaker.  This was good enough to place them #17 out of 113 teams in their division in the statewide rankings.  This is quite an accomplishment for both of these teams.  Thanks to them and Mrs. Tilley for all of the hard work during practice.

  1. MISNews:

With next week being a short week, there will not be a weekly MIS News mailing on Friday.  We hope everyone has a great and safe holiday break!

We were excited to see over 20% of our student body and their families come through the doors on Wednesday evening.  We hope you enjoyed your time and found it educational and fun all at the same time.  We had many of you enjoy pizza from Papa John’s, and we hope we can continue to grow this tradition.
