8th Grade Baby Pics

Posted by on in Greenwood Middle School News

8th Grade BABY/NOW Pictures
Who: 1st Semester 8th graders in Mrs. Vest’s Class

What: 2 pictures (1: Picture of you age 0-7     2: Picture of you now)

When: November 27-December 13(no later)

Where: Mrs. Vest’s room (hard copy) or Vest8thpix@gmail.com (online)

At the 8th grade exit, it is tradition that we show a video of the Class of 2021 as “youngsters” (0-school age) and then 8th Graders. If you would like to be part of this, you can either send in your baby picture/recent picture with your name on it, and give it to Mrs. Vest (Rm 210) or you can, instead, attach a jpg, png or gif version of your pictures to an email and send it to this address: Vest8thpix@gmail.com . We will return all hard copy pictures as soon as we are sure they are edited into the video. Have fun with it! Pick your favorite pictures that reflect your interests and personality…We like “Funny Photos” even better!    

*This is for students who have Applied Skills this semester. It will be an IN CLASS project completed by students, so it is necessary that they bring their photos in during this time frame. They will not be accepted next semester. Those having Mrs. Vest next semester will go through this process as well, so we can’t overload the students making the video with last semester’s students. Thanks for understanding.

Reality Store

Posted by on in Greenwood Middle School News

Plans are underway for this year’s Reality Store. Reality Store is a program for 8th graders and will be held on March 15, 2018 in the Auxiliary Gym. Students will select a career based on their interests and GPA.  The students will assume the role of a 28 year old and must manage a check book. They will be given wages for a month and then they must set up a bank account as well as make house payments, buy furniture, pay for child care, bills, etc.  Parents and community workers are needed to staff the various booths to talk with the students about their needs and budgets. No preparation is needed on your part and all information that you need will be given to you the day of the Reality Store. Workers are needed for all day and half day positions. If you can help with this year’s Reality Store, please contact Kyrian Marshall at kmarshall@gws.k12.in.us or 889-4040 ext. 4503. This is a very worthwhile learning experience for our 8th graders and we couldn’t do this program without the help of our volunteers. I look forward to hearing from you! Please consider helping that day! Continue reading

How to Get a Parent Canvas Account

Posted by on in Greenwood Middle School News

Canvas is our new student learning management system. GMS teachers can use it in many ways, including assignment explanations and downloads, online lessons, and a calendar of events and due dates. Parent accounts are available, which enable parents to view all of the information as well. 
  Click here for registration directions.
  Click here for information about registering multiple students to the same parent account.
  Click here for information about WEB and APP availability.

*There are a few ground rules to registering for a parent account in Canvas: 

1.       The parent needs to know the students’ lunch number and PowerSchool password.
2.       Parents will have to validate the account setup based on an email confirmation – they need to use real email accounts or else they will never complete the process.
3.       Only one account is needed – multiple kiddos can be observed with the same parent account.
