Turkey, mashed potatoes, green beans, roll, peaches, pumpkin pie.

 

  1. K-Kids News:  

Many families in our community have a difficult time buying food for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday so the K-Kids will be hosting a Thanksgiving themed food drive the week of Nov. 13-17th. This is a simple way to bring Thanksgiving to these families by donating to help feed those in need.  The first homeroom to collect the following items will be rewarded with breakfast (cinnamon rolls/chocolate milk) on Monday, November 20th:

8 cans of green beans

4 boxes of stuffing

6 cans of pumpkin pie filling

4 cans of cream of mushroom soup

5 boxes of mac and cheese

6 boxes of instant mashed potatoes

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

Attached you will find the activities for this evening as well as the location of each.  Feel free to print this, or there will be copies available at the first activity you choose to participate in.  Please note that you will not have time to make it to each activity so plan ahead.  As you leave for the evening, you will submit the form with teacher initials to be eligible for the prize drawings.  Please remember Papa John’s pizza will be available for purchase on this evening from 5-8pm for $10/pizza.    2017 MIS Family STEM Night Flyer (1)

  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. 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.
