THE WEATHER IS GETTING COLDER!
As we approach colder weather we want you to consider proper dress for the children: We know children like to come to school comfortable, but please remember the following guidelines; For girls; dresses, slacks or jeans. For boys; slacks or jeans. We encourage students to look neat in their dress. The way we dress is often the way we act. Short shorts, halter-tops and net shirts are not permissible. Shoes should be appropriate for safety and comfort. Please make sure that shirts and tops with "sayings" printed on them are in good taste. No alcohol, drug, gang symbols, satanic symbols, inappropriate language or pictures are permitted. Any attire that disrupts the educational process such as clothing that does not bit appropriately, underwear exposed, spaghetti straps, midriff showing and hats in the building are not permitted. Hip hops or low riding pants are not appropriate.

Morgan County Food Pantry
DEAR GREEN TOWNSHIP FAMILIES,
For many years, our school has been participating in the Christmas Basket Program for the Morgan County Food Pantry/Red Barn in Martinsville. This organization has filled a gap for the growing number of Morgan County families who find themselves in need due to illness, job loss, or other emergency situations. The Food Pantry strives to serve those who are in true need, and it is always a goal to help those in need move forward and improve their situations.
Please keep these families in your mind and heart as you grocery shop for your holiday events. Due to the rising need for nutritious food and the increasing numbers of those requesting assistance who are sometimes also homeless, we are asking for only one food item this year.
Our goal is to collect 247 jars of peanut butter
(12 or 16 oz. jars) for our 2015 donation.
That is one jar for every student
attending Green Twp. School.
Please help us help those who are less fortunate by sending at least one jar of peanut butter with each child attending GTS. Jars may be dropped in the collection box inside the school building until Dec. 18th at which time the final count will be made to see if we reached or even surpassed our goal. If our goal is reached, a celebration will be planned for the entire student body during the month of January!
