Ranger News, Week of November 18, 2019
From the Principal
The student Council is sponsoring a non-perishable food drive during the days leading up to Thanksgiving. The theme for this year's drive is "Raymond Park CAN make a difference in the fight against hunger!" Proceeds will benefit the Sonny Day Community Center right here in Warren Township.
Ranger students and staff participate in this community service because:
- Hunger is a serious problem. Without food, we can’t focus on work. Children can’t develop the healthy bodies and minds they need to succeed in the classroom.
- 1 in 6 Hoosiers is hungry.
- In Central Indiana, the problem is even more severe for seniors and children, where 20% of residents face food insecurity.
The drive will be held November 20-25. Donations can be made through CORE Connect classes. The winning class at each grade level will be rewarded with a Sweats and Joggers day! The student council is encouraging Ranger students to give what you CAN this holiday season to support those in need.
John Kleine, Ed.D.
School Closure on Tuesday, November 19, 2019
NOVEMBER 19, 2019 - SCHOOL CLOSURE

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 08, 2019
Dear Warren Families,
Our goal in MSD Warren Township is to provide a safe and high quality educational experience. As you may have heard, Tuesday, November 19 has been designated as Red for Ed Action Day in Indiana by the Indiana State Teachers Association. At their most recent public meeting, the MSD of Warren Township Board of Education approved the recommendation to cancel school on Tuesday, November 19 in support of Warren Township teachers and staff participating in the Red For Ed Action Day at the Indiana Statehouse with colleagues from around the state. The MSD of Warren Township and the Board is supporting our staff participating in this event to improve conditions for Indiana teachers as well as to advocate for our students, our schools, and our community. By canceling school on November 19th, we believe this supports our district goal of providing a safe and high quality educational experience both short term and into the future. Further, the Board approved the utilization of our flex day on Friday, May 22nd as the designated make up day for canceling school on November 19th. School and district offices will be open on November 19th.
We recognize that not having school will create challenges for some of our families. We will be providing lunch to all MSD Warren Township students at no charge; the host sites serving will be the three intermediate middle schools from 11:00 - 1:00. We are working with the YMCA and Boys and Girls Club to provide opportunities for those families who need supervision for their child. Please monitor our digital app and district website for additional information that may be distributed regarding student activities and services available on November 19th. We are communicating this as early as possible to provide families with an opportunity to plan for the closure on November 19th. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for supporting our teachers and staff and the great work they do each day in our classrooms and community for our students.
