weekly school News

We would like to welcome everybody to the 2019-20 school year. We hope that you have had an enjoyable summer and are looking forward to returning. We have been working hard to get prepared for the upcoming school year and wanted to share some information with you in preparation for your return. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the office at (317)326-3121. The office will officially open Wednesday, July 17th at 8:00am.

1. Registration Information - POWERSCHOOL (CLICK HERE)

- For Students who attended any GC School Last Year, online registration is now open for the 2019-20 school year through PowerSchool. To register your student(s), logon to the PowerSchool parent portal, access your parent account, and follow the prompts.

**Once registered, you should have access to your child's schedule, locker number and combination. Please be sure to PRINT this or WRITE it down to avoid the lines during open house.

- For students NEW TO GC (please spread the word to any of your new neighbors with school-aged children), we will be open for walk in registration on Friday, July 19th from 10:00am-5:00 p.m.

2. 2019-20 Supply Lists: CLICK HERE: These lists have also been dropped off at Wal-Mart in Greenfield.

3. 2019-20 Textbook Fees

- Textbook Rental: We would like to remind you that book rental payment is due no later than the first day of school. If you are on deferred payment, then the due date will be September 15th this year. We will have staff available to collect payment (cash or check) during open house should you like to take advantage of this opportunity. To avoid this line, please feel free to send with your child on the first day of school.

4. 2019-20 Open House/Meet the Teacher Nights

- Parents, information will be presented regarding the 1 to 1 computer program during this evening. You can view this at either 6:45 or 7:15 in your child's homeroom teacher's classroom.

5th Grade: 6:30-7:30pm ­ Wednesday, July 24th

6th Grade: 6:30-7:30pm ­ Thursday, July 25th

4th Grade: 6:30-7:30pm ­ Monday, July 29th

On the appropriate evening (see dates/times below), you will be able to meet your child's teachers. Your child will also have the opportunity to practice opening lockers and place items in them should they desire to do so. Again, we encourage you to print or hand write your locker number/combo as well as your schedule during the online registration process to save yourself from standing in line waiting during the open house event.

- Parents, information will be presented regarding the 1 to 1 computer program during this evening. You can view this at either 6:45 or 7:15 in your child's homeroom teacher's classroom.

5. Volunteer Forms (CLICK HERE)

- Once you are on the above page, click on the red apply button in the upper right hand corner to complete the process.

-If you plan to attend a field trip at any time during the year or volunteer in your child's classroom, we would encourage you to complete this as soon as possible. If you have not completed and passed this background check, you will not be able to participate in these events. It is at no cost to you so if you even remotely believe you might like to help out, please do this now. There is nothing worse than telling you in May that you cannot go on a trip with your child because this process has not been completed. Again, please take care of this now.

7. Medical Information - Please check the link for the latest on immunization and medical plan information.
