Upcoming community forum on how heroin and other drugs are impacting Hendricks County

Several graduates have recently lost their lives to the use of heroin. There is a continued concern regarding the impact of heroin and other drugs on Hendricks County. How should it be addressed? Plainfield High School Student Assistance Counselor Justine Thompson says, "By being proactive - working together to understand the exact nature of the problem - and being a part of the solution as a community."


PCSC encourages you to attend a very important community forum addressing the return of heroin to all communities, as well as other substances that impact our youth and county.


Date: April 16, 2015

Time: 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.

Place: Plainfield Recreation & Aquatic Center


The first hour will include information presented by law enforcement and the prosecutor’s office. The second hour will be dedicated to audience questions, concerns, and discussion in a proactive manner. All are welcome.

Students at Clarks Creek surpass fundraiser goal in 2 weeks!

Congratulations to students at Clarks Creek Elementary on surpassing their goal and raising $4,642.96 in a recent Pennies for Patients fundraiser!


Student council members organized the fundraiser in support of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.


Program sponsor Jeff Van Paris says, "We have been doing Pennies for Patients for at least three years now." The 4th grade teacher used a DVD about a child with leukemia presented by the Peanuts characters to promote the event, first to the council and later to all Clarks Creek students.


"Our student council members felt the DVD answered many questions about the disease," said Mr. Van Paris. "They made commercials for daily announcements as a way to share information about the disease and the impact their efforts could have."


The top collecting class each week in grades K-1, 2-3, & 4-5 received free ice cream. The overall top collecting class in each group at the end of the two weeks was awarded a class pizza party!


"This is our biggest charity drive we do each year, but we pride ourselves in helping many other charities," explains Van Paris.


The school collected over 30 bags full of nonperishable food items for St. Mark's Food Pantry in January. Other organizations supported this year include Breast Cancer Research, United Way, UNICEF, Samaritan’s Purse, and Sheltering Wings, Riley Hospital and Wounded Warriors.

Music on the Horizon

Plainfield High School AP Music Theory students are preparing to attend the much anticipated March 20th performance by the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. The event brings the world premier of a piece composed by Mr. James Beckel, who was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in 1997 for his composition of The Glass Bead Game: Concerto for Horn and Orchestra.


Students are also looking forward to a classroom visit by Mr. Beckel at PHS later the same week where he will discuss the music theory he used to create his music.


Mr. Beckel has been with the ISO since 1969, and his music has been performed by numerous orchestras across the country.
