4. We will have a Scholastic Book Fair in our school library from October 25 - November 5th. Click here for more information.

5. College Go Week is an annual campaign to promote enrollment in colleges and universities across the state of Indiana. In our efforts to celebrate College Go Week, we will have some planned activities that begin on Monday. Some of these activities include daily announcements, dress up days, and classroom visits from our counselors. Please see the attachment below for the list of dress up days.

6. Friday, November 12, will be a planned e-learning day for all Greenfield-Central Schools. Students will not report to school and will complete learning activities from home. Teachers will be on-site for professional development, and they will communicate times for office hours to students. There will be a second planned e-learning day on Monday, February 14.

7. 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.

8. Fall sports pictures were delivered this week. Unfortunately, we noticed several pictures with errors (student’s name misspelled, the wrong team picture included, etc). To get these issues corrected, please contact Lifetouch through the phone number found in the picture materials your student-athlete received.

9. Wrestling practice will begin Monday, November 1 from 3:30-5:15 in the auxiliary gym. In order to participate in practice, athletes must have a physical turned into the Student Services office and have the online athletic forms completed online through RankOne.

10. 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.

11. 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.

12. 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
