2017-2018 School Year!

 

We would like to welcome everybody to the 2017-18 school year. We hope that you have had an enjoyable summer and are looking forward to returning. We have been working hard to get prepared for the upcoming school year and wanted to share some information with you in preparation for your return. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the office at (317)326-3121.  The office will officially open Tuesday, July 18th at 8:00am.
 
 
1. Maxwell Drop off/Pick up Information: Again this year, you will enter the drive west of the football field off of 500 North. The drop off point will be located at the northeast doors (Gym). You will loop around and exit onto 500 North. If it is a possibility, we would encourage as many of you to head west on 500 North to eliminate some of the congestion on State Road 9. In addition, the drive on the far north of our property (in past years this was the entry for drop-off/pick-up) is now for bus traffic only. There should be no parent traffic on this drive.
 
2. 2017-18 Supply List
 
3. Registration Information – https://powerschool.gcsc.k12.in.us/public/
 
 
– For CURRENT GC Students, online registration will open on Thursday, July 20th for the 2017-18 school year through PowerSchool. To register your student(s), logon to the PowerSchool parent portal, access your parent account, and follow the prompts.
 
  **Once registered, you should have access to your child’s schedule, locker number and combination.  Please
      be sure to print this or write it down to cut down on the lines during open house.
 
– For students NEW TO GC (please spread the word to any of your new neighbors with school-aged children), we will be open for walk in registrations on Thursday, July 20th from 12:00-7:00 p.m.

If you are on deferred payment, then the due date will be September 15th this year. At this time, we are not able to take online payment; therefore, we will have staff available to collect payment (cash or check) during open house should you like to take advantage of this opportunity. Otherwise, please send with your child on the first day of school.
 
5. 2017-18 Open House/Meet the Teacher Nights
 
On this evening, you will meet your child’s teachers.  Your child will also have the opportunity to practice opening lockers and place items in them should they desire to do so.  Again, we encourage you to print or hand write your locker number/combo as well as your schedule to save yourself from standing in line waiting during the open house event.
 
4th/5th Grade parents, please note that there is no formal presentation per se on either of these evenings. Therefore, if you can’t make it until the last 15-20 minutes, you will still get the same opportunity to see the building/classrooms and meet the teachers.

6. Volunteer Forms- 
  – Click on the red apply button in the upper right hand corner once you are on the above page.
 
-If you plan to attend a field trip at any time during the year or volunteer in your child’s classroom, we would encourage you to complete this as soon as possible. If you have not completed and passed this background check, you will not be able to participate in these events. It is at no cost to you so if you even remotely believe you might like to help out, please do this now. There is nothing worse than telling you in May that you cannot go on a trip with your child because this process has not been completed. Again, please take care of this now.

State law prohibits us from sending it home with students.  Any medication left in the clinic after this time will be disposed of properly.                                                                                                                                 In addition, medication administration forms and care plans for the school year 2017/2018 are now available in the clinic at MIS or on our website.
  1. 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.
  2. 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.

  2. 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.

News:

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. Kindergarten Round-Up:  If you have a younger child or maybe a neighbor has a child who might be starting Kindergarten next year, round-up will be held next Tuesday, April 11th (JBS, Weston) and Thursday, April 13th (Eden, Harris) from 3-7pm.  You are allowed to attend any building for round-up.  Please spread the word.

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.

For more information and to register for the session, please contact the Greenfield-Central Administration Center at 317-462-4434. The deadline to register for this assessment session will be Friday, April 28th.

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.

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.

8.  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. 

9.  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.
