A couple of comments shared this week:

"Mrs. Hacker is such a wonderful person. She encourages the kids and shows them they are capable of great things. She even took the time to mail a card to our home sharing praise for our son. ❤️"

In the event of a snow day this year, we will continue to use the virtual learning model so that new instruction can be delivered and the year not be extended to make up for the missed day(s). Unlike with past snow days, we will be utilizing more "live" instruction which will mirror a typical school day. The day will consist of whole group and small group learning activities.

School Safety

A critical ingredient in the safe school recipe is the classroom response to an incident at school. Weather events, fire, accidents, intruders and other threats to student safety are scenarios that are planned and trained for by students, teachers, staff and administration.

Standard Response Protocol: Our school has expanded the safety program to include the Standard Response Protocol - Extended (SRPx). The SRPx is based on these five actions: Lockout, Lockdown, Evacuate, Shelter and Hold.

Please take a moment to review these actions. More information regarding this topic can be found at http://iloveuguys.org.

Safe Schools Alert

SafeSchools Alert is our district's tip reporting service. If you have information about a threat to our safety, do your part and report it. Please remember, you can remain anonymous. Should you have a need to report an issue, please click on the link below for details on how to do so.


Yearbooks are now available for purchase! To order online, go to ybpay.lifetouch.com and enter our school code: 10768421. Order your child’s yearbook today! Extras cannot be guaranteed.

Please contact Mrs. Hall, lhall@gcsc.k12.in.us, if you have any questions regarding yearbook orders or if ordering online is not possible for your family.


Our school will be participating in the SchoolStore program again this year. This online program helps our school earn cash without students selling door-to-door, collecting money or delivering products. Over 400 merchants, including Kohl's, Old Navy and WalMart.com, have joined together to offer up to 50% of sales to our school for shopping through SchoolStore.com.

You shop online for what you are planning to purchase anyway and support our school. Simply go to www.schoolstore.com, select our school (School code: 8981) and let the shopping begin!! Feel free to share with family members and friends.
