Congratulations to our 5th/6th Grade Math Bowl Team.   They tied for 5th place in the state competition.  This continues a great tradition of top ten finishes for MIS!!!

  1. New  Cell Phones at School:  

We are seeing a growing number of students coming to the office stating parents have contacted them to be picked-up and/or will be dropping items off for them.  Please note that school policy prohibits students from using their device during normal school hours.  In the case that you need to reach your child during the day, we politely ask that you call the main office (317-326-3121).  We will contact your student to relay a message and/or get items to them.  If it is a serious enough matter, we would be happy to call the student down to contact you.  This will help eliminate any cell phone violations and disruptions during class.  We appreciate your help with this matter.

Unless your child was absent this week, we have completed part 1 of ISTEP.  Our students worked really hard this week.  Please share how proud of them we are for their efforts   Please know that Part 2 will begin April 23rd and will be taken each morning for 6 consecutive school days.  We would ask that you do your best to avoid appointments, etc. during the mornings during this time-frame.

  • Students are not allowed to bring prescription medication with them to school or carry in their backpacks.  All medication needs to be brought in with a parent with a signature form from the doctor.   These forms are available in the office or the MIS website.   
  • Students are not allowed to bring over the counter medication with them to school or carry in their backpacks.  All medication needs to be brought in with a parent with a signature form from the doctor.   These forms are available in the office or the MIS website.   The only over the counter medication students are allowed to carry are cough drops and chapstick.   
  • It is encouraged students bring a doctor’s note with them upon their return.   If a diagnosis is given, please let the office know.  The doctor’s note will help medically excuse their absences.

MIS appreciates your assistance in helping keep our students safe and healthy!!

Please contact Mrs Hoskins with any questions or concerns.   

  1. See attachment #2 for the proposed 2019-20 schedule.

Please note that this calendar is almost identical to the 2018-2019 calendar that was approved by our school board last March.

Please direct your feedback related to the calendar to Mrs. Donieta Ross at, or you can make comments on the GC Facebook post (NOT MAXWELL I.S. PAGE) where you can also see the calendar draft.  Feedback needs to be received by March 2nd to enable us to share the information with the board of school trustees at the regular March board meeting.

  1. Hancock County Children’s Theater Workshop:  

Students currently in grades 4-8 are invited to apply for the 2018 Children’s Theater Workshop.  This year’s show will be “Lucky, Lucky Hudson”, a comedic parody on 1920’s crooks and racketeers.  The workshop will be held at Greenfield-Central HS from June 4th – June 29th.  If your child is interested in participating, he/she needs to see the art or music teachers to pick up an application.  Applications are due by March 16th..

  1. Make-Up Day Reminders:  

Please keep in mind that the first week of spring break (March 19th-23rd) has been established as make-up days should they be needed.


Our school will be participating in the SchoolStore program this year.  This online program helps our school earn cash without students selling door-to-door, collecting money or delivering products.  Over 400 merchants, including Sears, Target and, have joined together to offer up to 50% of sales to our school for shopping through

You shop online for what you are planning to purchase anyway and support our school.   Simply go to www.schoolstore.comselect our school (School code: 8981) and let the shopping begin!!  Feel free to share with family members and friends.


Vaccination Opportunity:  For the 2018-2019 school year, students in the sixth grade are required to have two Hepatitis A, a meningococcal, and a Tdap vaccine in order to be compliant with state requirements. Hepatitis A vaccines must be given six months apart. The Hancock County Health Department generally offers open clinics prior to the start of school, but you can also call and schedule an appointment or use your regular healthcare provider to receive vaccines. Due to the six month period that must pass between Hepatitis A vaccines, you should start NOW to ensure your student will not be excluded from attendance next school year.

  1. Breakfast & 2 Hour Delays:  

In the event of a 2 hour delay this year, breakfast will not be served on these days.  This is due to the fact that upon student arrival our lunch staff will already be in the process of prepping lunch.

  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:  Please note that cough drops are exempt from this policy.

  1. 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.
