The attached form can be completed, as little or often as you like, throughout the entire school year. We appreciate your support in growing the culture of gratitude that already exists at MIS!!

A comment shared this week:

"I am thankful for the time Mrs. Smith spends working with teachers, parents, students and our behavior coach to meet our fifth grade students' needs on a daily basis."

"Mrs. Sincroft, is always there for us students. She boosts our confidence to show us that we can do it. I know her goal is to see her students grow and to learn and myself/classmates are definitely exceeding that. She always makes us laugh and happy when going into her classroom. She especially loves to challenge us all to the best of our ability and be the best we can be. Mrs. Sincroft has changed my perspective in math so much and has made me love it again. If she wasn't my math teacher this year I would have struggled a lot and never would have been able to relieve my stress. Thank you so much Mrs. Sincroft!"

Math bowl news

If your child is interested in participating in math bowl this year, have them be on the lookout for try-out information next week. As with most everything this year, this will be a virtual after school opportunity, and there is a high probability the competition later this spring will be virtual as well.

Student council news

Over the past two weeks, the Maxwell student council has been collecting hats and gloves to help keep the students of Greenfield-Central K-6 Schools warm this winter. Due to the generosity of our MIS students, parents & staff, we collected a total of 135 new hats and pairs of gloves that will be shared with our elementary-aged friends in GC.

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.
