Grassy Creek students wore hats and donated a $1.00 to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Fund. Grassy Creek staff members Mrs. Snapp, Mr. Gammons, Mr. Ecker and Mrs. Smith braved the Ice Bucket Challenge this week. As we think about helping others, we want to support this worthy cause.
Grassy Creek is participating in a healthy, creative fundraiser with Art to Remember. Right now, your students are busy creating colorful, fun artwork and soon you will receive a personalized order form showcasing your child's artwork. There are over 30 keepsake products available this year! Please contact Mrs. Shea with any questions.
Please be sure your student's immunizations are up to date and turned into your child's school. Students without up-to-date immunization records on file by September 19th could be subject to exclusion from school. Check with the school nurse for immunization sites.
If your child is participating in the Free or Reduced Lunch Program and you have not received a new approval letter for the 2014/2015 school year, you must reapply by September 5, 2014. Unless you resubmit an application and are approved Free or Reduced Meal Assistance, your child's status will change to Full Pay. You will also be responsible for your child's textbook rental, which is due October 31, 2014. Forms are available in the school office, at the Warren Education and Community Center or online at http://www.warren.k12.in.us/food-service. For any questions or concerns, please contact the food service department at 317-869-4381 or 317-869-4389. You may also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In an effort to better communicate with our families, we are making a Nugget email distribution list. If you are interested in receiving your Nugget by email instead of a paper copy from your student, please send the following information to the school office.
