News:

  1. New:  Last MIS News of the Year:  The last student day will be Thursday, May 31st; however, this will be our final edition of the MIS News for the 2017-18 school year.  We appreciate all of your support and efforts in making this a great year.  We wish our 6th graders nothing but the best as they move on to the junior high.  We look forward to seeing our 4th/5th graders back on August 1st.  Have a great and safe summer!!!
  1. New:  2018-19 Technology Changes:  All of our graders will be one-to-one with technology (iPads – 4th Grade; Chromebooks – 5th/6th Grades) next year.  Please plan on attending the appropriate open house night this summer to learn more about this opportunity as well as signing paperwork so that your child can receive his/her iPad or chromebook next year.  An opportunity to learn more about insuring the devices will also be presented during these events.

Please see the following letter regarding more information about this change:  https://drive.google.com/file/d/1O5JMP9yQiz-rEZtF7kxpnjIS3JVDg2YT/view?usp=sharing

  1. Camp Invention:  Camp Invention is still accepting students and there are SEVERAL scholarships available.  Should you have an interest, feel free to contact Mrs. Joslin at djoslin@gcsc.k12.in.us.
  1. Lost and Found: If your child has misplaced an item over the last few weeks, please have them check the lost and found table outside of the office.  Any item remaining at the end of the school year will be donated to a local charity.
  1. Library News:   Library books were due last week, but we still have a few books out.  If your child still has a book out, they have been given information regarding replacement cost.  Please check around the house should your child still have a book out.
  1. Yearbooks:  There are six (6) yearbooks for sale if you did not originally order one.  They are $16 and checks should be made out to Maxwell IS.  They will be sold on a first come- first serve basis until gone.  No additional books will be ordered.  We will not hold books so students and/or parents must have money at the time of purchase.

Last Day of School/Awards Day:  Please note the time changes listed below to lunch times.  We will be recognizing Honor Roll (All A, A-B) as well as perfect attendance.  We would encourage you to monitor Powerschool to see if your child is eligible for one of these awards  as you will not be contacted.  Please know that we define perfect as just that, “without blemish.”  If a student has missed a day, part of a day or left early/arrived late, they are not eligible for this award.

Teachers will also be recognizing academic award winners in content areas. If your child will be receiving a classroom award, parents will be contacted by the classroom teacher.

This event will occur on May 31st:

      Awards (Cafeteria) 

      4th Grade 8:15AM– 9:00AM

      5th Grade 9:15 – 10:00AM

      6th Grade 12:15 – 12:45PM

      Lunch Times for Last Day: (these times are changed to accommodate awards and 6th Grade Celebration)

       4th Grade:  11:05-11:35

5th Grade:  10:30-11:00

6th Grade:   11:40-12:10   (We purchase only enough pizza for the students on this date.  If you plan to eat with a 6th grader on this date, please plan ahead by bringing your own lunch) 

  1. Clinic News:  Any medications stored in the clinic must be picked up by the end of the last school day. 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 2018-19 school year are now available in the clinic at MIS or on our website.

  1. CURRENT 5th GRADE PARENTS – PLEASE READ:  

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.
