Student Led Conferences

We are so excited to hold Student Led Conferences THIS Wednesday! Our students are prepared and ready to show you what they are working on! If you have not received a time for the conference, please reach out to your child's teacher.

Kindergarten Enrollment for 2023-2024

Kindergarten Enrollment is open! Students that will turn 5 by August 1, 2023, are eligible to enroll. Please go to the MCAS website and click on the link. We can't wait to meet our incoming kindergartners!

If you would like help registering a child for kindergarten, please come in this Wednesday between 12 and 6. You will need to bring a copy of your child's birth certificate and shot records as well as your picture ID and address verification.

Winter Weather and Recess Reminders

As the cold and snowy weather continues, please remember that we go out for recess unless the windchill is below 12 degrees. Students should be dressed for the weather to be able to be outside for 15-20 minutes.

Students will only be allowed to play in the snow if they have both snowboots and snowpants. Otherwise, they will remain on the blacktop and play there during snowy days.

If your child needs winter outerwear, please reach out to our counselor, Mrs. McFerson, 219-873-2117, ext. 6906, or email at vmcferson@mcas.k12.in.us.

Chromebook and Tablet Reminder

Please remember that while students are taking home their devices each night in case of inclement weather, they need to make sure they bring them charged and ready to go back each day to school. Remember, during inclement weather days, we will be holding zoom classes so students MUST log on to be counted present.
