weekly school News
1. BoosterThon Fun Run: We had a blast today. If you had donations based on laps ran/walked, you should receive an email this weekend sharing the total owed based on laps completed.
A huge thank you to the many volunteers who came to help out today. We could not have pulled it off without you!!! It was also tremendously helpful that you had already completed your background check. I would remind you that if you plan to volunteer or chaperone field trips this year, go ahead and fill out the volunteer form that can be found at the bottom of this section.
We are approximately $200 from our overall goal so the company has extended to us the opportunity to collect donations through next week. If you happen to see family over the weekend that would like to help the cause, please feel free to share the information.
2. #thankfulThursday: We appreciate the many comments already supplied. We would encourage you to keep sharing these kind comments by using the link below. A few shared comments from this week:
"My daughter has Miss Strifler and Mrs. Glant and Mrs. Proper this year. I asked her who her favorite was and she could not decide because she likes them all so much!! That makes a momma happy ☺"
Mr. Berrier called to tell me about my daughter's good job on her NWEA MAP test. She was very proud of herself when she heard what he had said. She was nervous about having a "boy" teacher this year. He has made a real, positive impact on her life already! Please keep up the good work!"
3. Family Literacy Night: September 11th - 6:00-7:00pm (Click below - link updated - for more details)
4. Fall Book Fair: The Book Fair will be open daily from September 10-14th. Mrs. Elsbury is looking for volunteers from 8 am-11 am, 11 am- 2 pm OR all day to help out with the book fair.
Family Night will be Tuesday Sept 11, 6-8 pm. Volunteers are still needed for this evening as well. If you would be interested in helping during any of these times or have questions about the book fair, please email Mrs. Elsbury at email@example.com.
5. E-Learning Day/Attendance on this Day: Please keep in mind that our first ever K-6 e-learning day will occur on Wednesday, September 26th. More details to come soon regarding this day; however, we wanted to make you aware that your child's attendance on this date is based on completion and submission of the assigned work. If your child doesn't complete the assigned work, they will be marked as absent.
6. GCHS Cheer Clinic
7. Immunization Update: The Hancock County Health Department will be hosting a walk-in immunization clinic on September 26th from 8:30-3:15pm. This is the day before our exclusion date is set which gives you another opportunity to get the required shots before we would be required to call to let you know that your child will be excluded from school until shot records are provided. This is also our e-learning day where students will be working from home. Once students complete their assigned work, they would not miss any instruction on this date while getting the required shots. This will allow you some additional time to get this finished. For additional information or questions, please contact the Health Department at 317-477-1125.
8. School Dismissal Manager: You should have received an invitation last week to set up your account. Below are instructions for setting up your account. However, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call the office.
