1.  Fall 2017 7th Grade Volleyball Information     VOLLEYBALL CALL OUT MEETING

2.  IUPUI Summer Reading Skills Program Information     20170418110848726

3.  Junior High Cross Country Team Information (Current 6th Graders)     Summer running letter 2017

News:

1.  ISTEP Testing:  The first week of ISTEP has gone pretty smooth.  We will finish up next Monday and Tuesday with science (4th/6th Grade) and social studies (5th Grade).  The 4th/5th Grade will begin testing each day at approximately 8:10 while the 6th grade will begin around 9:15.  Again, we would ask that you do your best to have your child here on time.  If they are late, they cannot enter an already started testing session.  If they miss a testing session due to absence or tardiness,  it must be made up during the testing window which means missed class time.

2.  Hancock County Art Show:  This year’s Art Show will be held in the Eastern Hancock HS gymnasium on Thursday, April 27th and Friday, April 28th from 8:00am-8:00pm each day.  There will be a silent auction, a brown bag raffle during the show, as well as concessions. Raffle prizes will be awarded at 7 pm on Friday evening, and you don’t even need to be present to win! Please come and support your classmates. These artists have worked very hard and have created some amazing works of art!!! Miss Muehl and Mrs. Reynolds hope you can come, and they look forward to seeing many of you at the Show!!!

3.  Outdoor Art: After School Projects

Miss Muehl will be hosting a tie-dye project after school for Maxwell Intermediate Students. This project is open to  any student who currently attends MIS.  Students will be staying after school on Wednesday, May 3rd OR Friday, May 5th from 2:15 – 3:30 for this activity. Students will need to bring in their own item to be tie dyed – examples: shirts, tank tops, canvas bags, white shoes (for spray dye), socks, etc.

Miss Muehl will also be hosting a marble paper project after school on Thursday, May 11th. For this activity, students will be using shaving cream and food coloring to make marble paper. It’s sure to be messy and a lot of fun.

Both activities will be happening outdoors, weather permitting. If the weather is bad, new dates will be scheduled immediately.

Students interested in either activity will need to pick up a permission slip from the OFFICE starting on Monday, April 24th. Permission slips need to be signed and returned to the office no later than MAY 1ST. 

NO LATE PERMISSION SLIPS WILL BE ACCEPTED. NO EXCEPTIONS. Students must turn in a permission slip; a phone call or email will not be accepted as permission for this activity. 

**Depending on interest, the size of the group may have to be limited based on return time of permission slips.

If you have any questions, please email Miss Muehl at bmuehl@gcsc.k12.in.us.

4.  Cafeteria Reminders:

        1.  All Fruits and Vegetables will be Manager’s Choice and not the exact fruit listed for the remainder of the year.

        2.  Chef Salads will still be available as an alternative meal; however, side salads listed on individual days will be changed to Managers Choice Vegetable.

If you have an outstanding debt with the cafeteria, we kindly ask that this be taken care of soon.                      

5.  Camp Invention:  Greenfield-Central is proud to partner with the National Inventors Hall of Fame for another fun summer; J.B. Stephens Elementary School is pleased to offer the nationally-acclaimed Camp Invention program to children entering grades one through six. Camp Invention is an exciting, weeklong summer adventure with lessons that explore connections between science, technology, engineering and innovation. Children will work together to seek solutions to real-world problems, turn ordinary into extraordinary and sharpen critical 21st century learning skills while rotating through several fascinating modules. For more information please visit www.campinvention.org, or contact Miss Bradford at abradford@gcsc.k12.in.us, or 317-462-4491.

6.  Schoolstore.com:  Thank you to everyone who participated in our Schoolstore.com fundraiser.  We greatly appreciate you support.  We would appreciate your continued support by shopping online through this website.  

7.  Morning Drop Off

When dropping off your student/s in the parent pick up line, we would ask that you have your child exit the car directly onto the curb.  Students who exit the vehicle into the drive and walk around their car may risk injury from other vehicles moving in the drive.  We also ask that you be patient and not pull around unloading cars.

Please also remember that the bus lot is closed to vehicle traffic from 7:30-7:50 in the morning.  We ask that you use the parent drop off line, instead of the bus parking lot.  Dropping off a student off by the curb in the bus area creates an unsafe situation for both your student and our bus riders.  If you have a special circumstance, please contact the main office in advance to arrange for appropriate parking or feel free to use the guest parking spots on the southwest side or the far south spots near 500 N.

1.  MIS Teacher of the Year Nominee:  Please join us in congratulating Mr. Berrier, 5th Grade ELA teacher,  who was selected by the MIS staff to represent us in the GC Corporation Teacher of the Year Competition.  The GC Teacher of the year  is named and recognized on the first day of school next year.  We wish him the best of luck as he works his way through the process.

2.

3.  Spring Bus Evacuation Drills:  As required by law twice a year, we will be holding our spring bus evacuation drills on Monday (April 10th).  This will result in about a 15 minute delay in us releasing the buses thus causing students to be a little late in arriving home.

4.  Grandparent’s Luncheon:  Thanks to all who came to visit with your grandchildren.  We had a great turnout and hope you enjoyed yourselves.   A big thanks to all of the volunteers for their time as well as to our our entire staff for their extra efforts to pull this together.

5.  MIS will be celebrating Disability and Autism Awareness the week of April 24-28.   Student council members will be sharing mini lessons, activities, and videos with their homerooms during this week to celebrate the uniqueness in all of us! “I am not your inspiration” is the campaign slogan for the Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities. ” Often, people with disabilities who are successful, athletic, employed or simply good neighbors are put in the spotlight as inspiration to others. This year’s campaign theme emphasizes that people with disabilities are people first – people who want to be fully included in their communities, just like everyone else.”   

Student Council will also be holding a poster contest for any student wishing to participate. The guidelines are to create an informative poster with a positive message for a chosen disability or autism. There will be a $25.00 gift card for the winner.

5.  Hancock County Children’s Theater Workshop – Applications for the 2017 Hancock County Children’s Theater Workshop are now available from Mrs. Beuoy and Mrs. Addington.  Students currently in grades 4 through 8 are invited to apply.  This year’s show will be, “Peter Pan, A Musical Adventure.”  The workshop will be held at Greenfield-Central High School in Greenfield.  The performances will be in the Greenfield-Central Auditorium.  Classes will begin May 31 and continue through June 23.  The workshop meets from 8:30 AM until 12:00 PM Monday through Friday.  If you are interested in acting, singing, dancing, art, or theater tech, please be sure to apply.  Applications are due by March 10.

6.  Hoops for Heart – It is not too late for your student to participate in Hoops for Heart this year.  Please send in their permission slip or a note for them to stay after school on Wednesday, February 22 until 4PM.  Your student will have fun exercising while supporting the American Heart Association.  Thank you!

7.  Schoolstore.com:  Thank you to everyone who participated in our Schoolstore.com fundraiser.  We greatly appreciate you support.  We would appreciate your continued support by shopping online through this website.

8.  Morning Drop Off

When dropping off your student/s in the parent pick up line, we would ask that you have your child exit the car directly onto the curb.  Students who exit the vehicle into the drive and walk around their car may risk injury from other vehicles moving in the drive.  We also ask that you be patient and not pull around unloading cars.

Please also remember that the bus lot is closed to vehicle traffic from 7:30-7:50 in the morning.  We ask that you use the parent drop off line, instead of the bus parking lot.  Dropping off a student off by the curb in the bus area creates an unsafe situation for both your student and our bus riders.  If you have a special circumstance, please contact the main office in advance to arrange for appropriate parking or feel free to use the guest parking spots on the southwest side or the far south spots near 500 N.
