1. Greenfield Central 8th graders will take the PSAT 8/9 this semester instead of the NWEA assessment. The PSAT 8/9 is the first test in the SAT Suite of Assessments--which also includes Indiana’s graduation assessment, the SAT. See the letter below for more information.

2. We currently have a Scholastic Book Fair in our school library until November 5th. Click here for more information.

3. Friday, November 12, will be a planned e-learning day for all Greenfield-Central Schools. Students will not report to school and will complete learning activities from home. Teachers will be on-site for professional development, and they will communicate times for office hours to students. There will be a second planned e-learning day on Monday, February 14.

4. After school transportation changes -- If you need your student to ride a different bus on a particular day, please communicate this in writing to the school office by 3:00pm. This will allow us to get a note that your student can present to the bus driver. If your student will be changing from bus rider to car pick-up, or vice versa, you would only need to communicate that change to the office if you need us to notify your student at school.

5. Fall sports pictures have been given to the kids. Unfortunately, we noticed several pictures with errors (student’s name misspelled, the wrong team picture included, etc). To get these issues corrected, please contact Lifetouch through the phone number found in the picture materials your student-athlete received.

6. Wrestling practice will begin Monday, November 1 from 3:30-5:15 in the auxiliary gym. In order to participate in practice, athletes must have a physical turned into the Student Services office and have the online athletic forms completed online through RankOne.

7. Are you in need of Food Support? Check out the Food Support Resources 2021-2022 document in the download section below to find locations and times for specific food support.

8. Hancock County Christmas Connection- matches families with a variety of resources available to families in Hancock County for the holidays. Depending on family needs and resources available, families may be assisted through a donor program (where a family is “sponsored” for the holidays) or a community service group program (assistance provided according to service group guidelines). Attempts will be made to serve every family in need of assistance, but please know that completion of this application does not guarantee that your family will receive holiday assistance.

9. Applications for holiday assistance will be available in Student Services from November 1-19. If you have any questions regarding the program or applications please contact Kristy Tweedy, School Social Worker, 317-477-4616, ktweedy@gcsc.k12.in.us

The Lockers New Look

By: Gustavo Contreras

Pictures By:Gustavo Contreras


If you haven’t noticed yet the boys basketball/football locker room got painted. During this week Mr.Wagner, Mr. Graupner, and Miss Dawson (she only put in a hour) painted the locker room themselves. In total it took about 30 hours to paint, so about a day and half an afternoon to paint. Although painting all the locker rooms would be amazing, they only plan on painting the ones they use. It’s not because they don’t want to, but because they managed to get enough basketball donations to afford it. So you might want to take a peek at the pictures below.

SCHOOL LUNCH REVIEWS


BY ANNA STUDER



WELCOME TO SCHOOL LUNCH REVIEWS! MY NAME IS ANNA STUDER, AND I AM A FOOD CRITIC. I HAVE BEEN TAKING PHOTOS OF MY LUNCH SINCE THE THIRD MONDAY OF SCHOOL. I don’t want to make the lunch ladies look bad, because they have to make lunch for a thousand students. THEY WORK SO HARD, AND I JUST WANT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT.
