As many of you know, the landscape of Indiana education and its curriculum has changed over the last couple of years. Although we believe that these changes will have a positive impact on all Indiana students, we are making sure that our students in Warren are prepared for the real world once they graduate high school. In an effort to share some of the recent changes in curriculum and how Warren teachers are preparing our students to be ready for college or their career, we invite you to attend the MSD Warren School Board sponsored Community Dialogue on Wednesday, September 24th at the Warren Education and Community Center, 975 N. Post Road at 6:30 PM. This community dialogue, "How to Help Your Child in the New Academic Environment" will provide a backdrop on the current Indiana College and Career Readiness Standards and information to help you and your child be successful with the new changes.
Warren Township is partnering with the YMCA to offer School’s Out Camp during Fall Intersession, October 6th - 17th. Camp will be offered at the Early Childhood Center, for pre-school age, and Lakeside Elementary and the Ransburg YMCA, for school-age children. Activities will include arts and crafts, science experiments, cooking projects, and more! For rates or to register call (317)226-9122 or visit the website at www.indymca.org/classes-programs.
All Warren PreK-6 buildings will once again be participating in "Spread the Love" which is a campaign sponsored by Gleaners Food Bank and Shine FM. Students are encouraged to bring in unopened jars of peanut butter during the month of September. "Spread the Love" is designed to be a fun and engaging way for students to participate in Hunger Action Month and learn about the needs of their community.
You are invited to be a PAC Parent!
Does your child ever take too much time to do homework… need an extra boost of self-esteem…use social media…or choose not to follow your directions? As a parent, do you ever feel like you could use some support from other parents who have the same concerns with their children as you? If so, you are encouraged to register for our upcoming PAC (Parents are the Core) sessions. Throughout the 2014-15 school year, six sessions will be offered for parents. Topics include: how to determine what makes your child special and strategies for building these strengths, homework tips, discipline, your child and social media, and information Warren Township parents need to know. The sessions will be held from 6:00-7:30 p.m. at school throughout the school year. Free supervised activities will be offered for children, ages 5-12, who attend with their parents. PAC Kids is open only to children whose parents are
attending PAC. Activities will include crafts, computer games and activities, game nights, gym activities, fun projects, snacks, and entertainment. If you are unable to attend the session at our school, the topics will be offered at every other Warren Township elementary and intermediate academy. Call the school office or check the Warren Township website for this information. PAC Web Page>>> Contact the school office to register for a session.
