  1. Family Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Night:  

Please see the “actual” attached document this week for more details on this event.  Please note that the Papa John’s Trailer will be in the parking lot selling pizzas for $10 from 5-8 pm.  Feel free to pick a pizza up on your way home from work or after the event to take home.  We will also have limited seating (first come, first served) in the cafeteria beginning at 6:00 pm throughout the event so that you can enjoy the pizza.

  1.  PTO Spirit Wear Sale:  

The MIS PTO spirit wear sale is now online and open. The store closing date is November 12th.

The link is:  https://maxwell.itemorder.com/sale

  1. ISTEP Load Test:

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.

  1. GCAT Swimming:

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.

  1. Christmas Assistance:  

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.

  1.  Parent/Teacher Conferences:  

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.

  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.
