Thanksgiving and Christmas DETAILS

We recommend that you apply ONLINE by the early part of November for Holiday Assistance.

GSN's signature holiday assistance program significantly impacts thousands of families every year. GSN clients are always able to receive food baskets for both Thanksgiving and/or Christmas. Additionally, clients receive new or gently used toys and clothing for the Christmas season - as part of our Christmas Distribution.


In order to be considered for any GSN Holiday event - a yearly application is required. We prefer you complete the Holiday Assistance Application ONLINE. Contact the office if you need a paper copy, or visit any Hamilton County agency.

Everyone will receive some form of assistance from only ONE Hamilton County agency or source. No one will receive assistance without submitting an application (digitally/online or hard copy/mail).

Families will either be assigned to a 1) private sponsor (provided thru GSN) or 2) households will be assigned to GSN. Not both!


Social Emotional Learning (SEL)

Students continued the Second Step Elementary digital program, a researched-based social-emotional learning program designed to improve children’s social-emotional skills. Second Step skills and concepts are designed to help children both in and out of school.

Please see the Second Step Weekly Home Link attached at the bottom of the newsletter for specific information discussed in each grade level Week 9.

Snack Attack - Fishers Youth Assistance Program

NBE is pleased to announce the return of the Snack Attack program for those students in need. This program, supported by the Fishers Youth Assistance Program, is designed to provide students a little extra nourishment for the weekend until they can receive a hot meal at school on Monday.

Here's how the program works. Your student will pick up a small sack of food to be taken home over the weekend. The sack is filled with individually wrapped snacks such as granola bars, fruit cups, pop tarts, peanut butter/crackers, Goldfish crackers, etc. The type of snacks will vary each week. Please let us know if your child has a peanut allergy as he/she will receive a special bag of peanut-free snacks.

There is no cost to you or the school. This program is open to students that qualify for the reduced lunch program or have an increased need currently.

To be part of this free program, you must sign up your family online. https://forms.gle/xrKNaxRaLypSqKvV8
