Good afternoon.  Depending on your son’s or daughter’s final grades, which will be posted by 2:30 pm on Thursday, he or she may qualify for Credit Rescue.  Credit Rescue is a program allowing students who fall just short of passing a course (they earn between a 55% and 59%) another chance to come to school, do the necessary work to the expected level, and earn credit for the course.  The first session is Thursday from 5 pm -8 pm, followed by sessions on Friday and Tuesday from 8 am to 2 pm.  Seniors must complete their work on either Thursday or Friday to be eligible for graduation.  The full schedule and more details on the program are posted here.  Students, who officially qualify for Credit Rescue, will receive an automated phone call on Thursday afternoon and can check PowerSchool to view core class grades that may fall between 55% and 59%.  Also, feel free to call the high school office at 889-4000.

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

Drop-Off/Pick-Up Procedures

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
drop off pick up

We wanted to provide you a reminder of drop-off and pick-up procedures:

*Please follow the indicated route (in yellow) to drop-off students before school and pick-up students after school at door 32 (until 2:40 pm or 2:10 pm on Wednesdays).
*Please avoid the front parking lot (in red) so staff can enter safely and buses can unload in a safe manner.  After the buses depart in the morning (7:15 am), some of you have been dropping students off in the front.  While not encouraged, please understand there will be no one directing traffic at this time and you should follow traffic rules and signs.  After the buses depart in the afternoon (2:40 pm or 2:10 pm on Wednesdays), there will be someone directing traffic at the "T" by the school until approximately 12 minutes after school ends.  Again, you should follow traffic rules and signs when no one is directing.

We understand and recognize this procedure may require you arrive earlier in the mornings or later in the afternoons to avoid lines, but we believe it is in the best interest of all students.  Thus, please make the necessary accomodations and adjustments to help each school day begin and end as best it can.

Canvas

Posted by on in Greenwood High School News
GHS now utilizes Canvas as a learning management system.  Teachers are being asked to do the following:  

1)  Maintain a front page with contact information along with course rules/information.
2)  Utilize the calendar feature to announce major work (i.e. tests, papers, projects, etc.).
3)  Increase student online submissions in honors' courses.

Many teachers are going above these year one expectations by including additional, useful information for students.  As a parent/guardian, you have the ability to link to your child's account and become an "observer" in Canvas to view what teachers post relevant to course material.  You will not be able to see any other students' information, scores, or work.

To sign up, go to the Greenwood High School homepage (http://www.gws.k12.in.us/greenwood-high-school).  Under the "Parents" link, select "Canvas."  You will enter your name and email address along with your child's username/password and you can begin observing.  We hope you find this system beneficial as you help your child stay up to date and perform his/her best in all of his/her academic pursuits.
