Meet the Teacher Night

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Parents:  This Thursday, August 10th is Meet the Teacher Night at Greeenwood High School.  Parents will have the opportunity to follow their child’s schedule to meet his/her teacher, hear about classroom policies and practices, and ask questions if time permits.  This event will begin at 5:30 on Thursday.  In addition, parents of Seniors can learn more about Naviance, an online program designed to help in the search for scholarships, college visits and applications and transcript requests in the IMC at 5:00 and then again at 7:30 Thursday night.  Again, this presentation is geared towards the parents of seniors, while the regular event begins at 5:30.

Also, parents, we are experiencing a high volume of traffic in the parking lot between the soccer field and the high school at both drop-off and pick-up.  Please avoid this parking lot, especially the curve at the far end of the lot, between 7:00 and 7:20 and again between 2:10 and 2:35.  Rather, please move towards door 32 on the east side of the building near the football field for both drop-off and pick-up.  Thanks for your help in this process aimed at keeping our students and buses safe.

Have a great evening and we hope to see you on Thursday night! Continue reading

Camp Kesem

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Camp Kesem is a nationwide, nonprofit organization that provides free summer camp and year-long support for children who have been affected by their parent's cancer. This could mean that their parent currently has cancer, has had cancer, or past away due to the terrible disease. At Camp Kesem, our goal is to provide support for the children who have experienced adult-sized problems at a young age, while also giving them a fun escape and a chance to bond with other children facing the same experiences. Our camp is open to any child between the ages of 6-16 and is completely free of charge!

Last year, Camp Kesem at Indiana University was able to serve 150 children from Central and Southern Indiana. This year, we are hoping to serve 190 children. With your help, we can provide these children with sense of community and lifelong friendships! If you know of any families that would benefit from our services, please have them email me at indiana.outreach@campkesem.org or visit our website at campkesem.org/indiana. If you would like more information or other ways you can help Camp Kesem, please feel free to email me as well!

Our registration for Camp 2017 is now open to new families and we have many spots available! We hope that we will able to serve many new families this upcoming year. Interested families can apply at this link: https://campscui.active.com/orgs/CampKesem#/selectSessions/1717902 Continue reading

Homeroom Updates

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
Students:  Please remember there are new homeroom procedures beginning this week.

1st Tuesday of the Month:  Regular homeroom

Last Tuesday of the Month:  Clubs/Teams/Activities may meet during homeroom.  Lists will be posted throughout school and electronically of those groups meeting.  Students are also encouraged to see one of their academic teachers to get help or make up assignments/assessments.  Students should obtain a purpose pass ahead of time (see below for more information).  C237 will be open to provide computer access and LGI 2 will be open for student collaboration.  Students should also obtain purpose pass ahead of time to visit either of these rooms.

Every Other Tuesday:  Same as the "Last Tuesday of the Month" with the exception that clubs/teams/activities will not meet.

*Purpose passes may be obtained from your teacher by either asking for one or the teacher may give you one.  Purpose passes for C237/LGI 2 may be obtained from the main office.

*If you receive a purpose pass you are expected go to that classroom.  If you receive more than one, please talk with your teachers to work out what is best for you.

*If you forget to obtain a purpose pass, you may still try and go see a teacher during homeroom, but since seats are limited, you may have to come back another day.  Thus, please see your teacher ahead of time.

*If you are going to see another teacher, you do not need to check in with your regular homeroom teacher.  Report directly to the teacher you are going to see at the conclusion of period 4 and you will sign-in when you get there.

*All students should be in a classroom and with a teacher for the duration of homeroom.  This opportunity is a response to both teacher and student feedback and provides the student with additional privileges/opportunities and hopefully a greater sense of ownership in his/her education.  Please understand these responsibilities and live up to the expectations and trust afforded you.  Students failing to following directions will lose these privileges, and possibly receive discipline.

We're excited about this opportunity and hope it provides all of you with another opportunity to further your education within the school day. Continue reading
