ILEARN Testing: Final Week: April 29-May 3

We had an awesome first week of testing and have completed all of our math sections for ILEARN. Next week students will begin language arts testing. Right now we are scheduled to test Monday-Friday of next week. Please help your child have the best opportunity for success by making sure he/she gets plenty of sleep the night before, and try to make those mornings as stress-free as possible for him/her. Please also try to schedule any appointments around those dates to avoid having your child pulled from their other classes for make-up testing (students will be testing during their language arts and math blocks). Students who are present each day during ILEARN testing will get their card stamped and will earn a free "sweats" day.

Medication Pick Up


Please pick up any medications your student may have in the school clinic by end of day on Monday, June 3. This includes prescription medication, over the counter medication, inhalers/ nebulizers and Epi pens. Any medications not picked up by 1:30 p.m. on June 3rd will be discarded as required by State Law.

Warren PRIDE Clean Up Day 4/27/19

Warren Central High School PTSA is proudly leading Warren Pride Clean Up for a 2nd year, and we are asking for YOUR help!
The event will kick off Saturday, April 27 at the Warrior Dome on the east end of our WCHS football field.
Check-in will begin at 7:45am.
Kick-off begins at 8:15am.
Buses will load at 8:30am.
Buses will return at 11:00am.
Lunch will be provided to all volunteers at 11:30am.
Some of the ways you can help:
* Organize your group, parish, organization, members, or staff to join us. The more hands we have, the more trash we get. (We can assign your group to your own location.)
* Sponsor us! We need $500 in sponsorships to provide t-shirts to all participants so they can easily be seen while performing this community act!
Because not all of our community has children in our schools or use social media, we would also like to leave signs announcing Warren Pride Clean Up.
Please contact MICHELLE SHUFFITT with all sponsorship inquiries. (317) 490-7752
* Donate! We are in need of trash bags, rubber gloves, and/or safety vests.
* Volunteer! We can use your help the morning of the event, registering volunteers, distributing shirts, organizing routes, and filling in any gaps!

How important is attendance for student success?

The single most important factor for student achievement and graduation vs dropout rate is student attendance (Reid, 2006). The state of Indiana with the new ESSA Plan has defined a student with "model attendance" as missing no more than 7 days of school. Anything over 7 days is defined by the state as "chronic abseentism." We have challenged our students to do even better than that and set a goal of missing no more than 5 days of school this year.

We do understand that there are situations that arise where an absence can't be prevented. Please help communicate those reasons to the school by calling the main line at 532-6800 between 6:00-7:00 a.m. to report the absence.

Excused Absences Include:

1. Personal illness or injury (please drop off physician's notes to front desk)

2. Death in the immediate family

3. Attendance at a family funeral

4. Religious observances required by church officials

5. Serving as a page in the legislature

6. Court appearance/court detention

7. Working at polls

Thank you for your help in setting up your child for success by making sure they get to school each and every day.
