3. December 8th = Greenfield Central 8th graders will take the PSAT 8/9 this semester instead of the NWEA assessment. The PSAT 8/9 is the first test in the SAT Suite of Assessments--which also includes Indiana’s graduation assessment, the SAT. See the letter below for more information.

4. Hancock County Christmas Connection- matches families with a variety of resources available to families in Hancock County for the holidays. Depending on family needs and resources available, families may be assisted through a donor program (where a family is “sponsored” for the holidays) or a community service group program (assistance provided according to service group guidelines). Attempts will be made to serve every family in need of assistance, but please know that completion of this application does not guarantee that your family will receive holiday assistance.

5. Applications for holiday assistance will be available in Student Services from November 1-19. If you have any questions regarding the program or applications please contact Kristy Tweedy, School Social Worker, 317-477-4616, ktweedy@gcsc.k12.in.us


6. After school transportation changes -- If you need your student to ride a different bus on a particular day, please communicate this in writing to the school office by 3:00pm. This will allow us to get a note that your student can present to the bus driver. If your student will be changing from bus rider to car pick-up, or vice versa, you would only need to communicate that change to the office if you need us to notify your student at school.

7. Are you in need of Food Support? Check out the Food Support Resources 2021-2022 document in the download section below to find locations and times for specific food support.

Due to a short week there will NOT be a new Cougar Connection next Friday. The next edition will be released on December 3rd.
