The Indiana Department of Education requires all school corporations to conduct a Local Infrastructure Trial between November 1st and November 10th. This is the time that we test all devices that we anticipate using during ISTEP+ testing this school year. This does provide our students an opportunity to experience the format of ISTEP; however, the main purpose is to test the local infrastructure readiness for the upcoming assessments. At MIS, this test will occur the morning of November 8th and last thirty (30) minutes.
Do you love to swim in the summer? Have you ever thought about joining the swim team but didn’t want to make a year long commitment? Now is the time to try the sport of swimming. GCAT is offering a 6-week session Flex Swim program. You choose the number of days per week you would like to swim. See the flyer for more information.
Hancock County families who are in need of Christmas assistance will once again be helped this year through the United Christmas Service (UCS), a division of the United Way. Greenfield-Central Schools, along with several other community agencies, will be able to refer families they are familiar with. The referral process will begin on November 1st and will continue through November 17th. Parents will be asked to complete an application, and return it to Mr. Scott Stroud, School Social Worker. This application requires information on each member of the household, such as name, gender, birth date, ethnicity, social security number, school attending, clothing sizes, and reason for need. United Christmas Service will assist as many families as possible; however, no one is guaranteed assistance.
If you would like to request a copy of the United Christmas Service application or need additional information, please contact Mr. Stroud at 326-3121.
We appreciate all of the parents who took the time to come meet with your child’s homeroom teacher yesterday. Our next evening of P/T conferences will occur November 9th from 4-7 pm. If you have not already signed up for a time/date and would still like one, please contact your child’s homeroom teacher.
