Change in Start Time of Schools for 2020-2021

Parents and Community Partners,

I am communicating a change in our school hours for the 2020-2021 school year so that you can make needed adjustments. Each of our buildings (GES, GJHS, and GHS) will start school 30 minutes later every Friday.  The only day of the week affected is Friday.  This time is very important because it will be used by the staff for instructional improvement.  It will allow them to collaborate in various teams to address curricular demands that require time to properly plan and implement.  We hope that making you aware in advance will ease any stress caused by the late arrival.  We take the loss of instructional time very seriously so we hope you understand how important this need for collaboration is for our educators.  The start times will be communicated numerous times before the beginning of next school year.  There are no changes in the start time for the remainder of this school year.

Welcome to Greensburg Elementary School, Home of the Pirates.

It gives us great pleasure, as Principals of Greensburg Elementary School, to welcome you to our school family.  Our highly qualified staff members strive to provide the highest quality education for your children. We are dedicated to meeting the needs of learners while providing rigorous and relevant instruction based on the Indiana Standards. We have high expectations for our students both in academics and behavior. Time to Teach, an evidence based, highly successful set of classroom management strategies is used to teach our students classroom expectations and procedures. Students will learn expectations and procedure for common areas in our school such as the hallways, restrooms, playgrounds, and the Pirate Cafe. 

We are truly excited that our school is 1:1! Each of our students will have the use of a device to enhance his/her learning experiences. Kindergarten and first grade will be using IPads. Second grade through five will be equipped with a Dell Latitude. Staff members are excited to integrate technology into the daily lessons and activities to enhance student learning.

Finally, we firmly believe that when children are surrounded with a support system that includes school, parents, and community they will develop into lifelong achievers and will become the leaders of tomorrow. Here are some ways you as a parent(s) you can help your child achieve academic success:

1) Reading with your child(ren) nightly;
2) Reviewing school work with them;
3) Helping with homework;
4) Insisting on appropriate behavior;
5) Calling or checking with their teachers routinely;
) Having high expectations for your child(ren). Let them know you expect their best, and;
7) Volunteering and supporting Pirate Boosters parent group.

Again, welcome to Greensburg Elementary School. Here’s to a FANTASTIC school year!
