Good Afternoon Warren Students, Families, and Staff,
We have a couple of important announcements for the week of August 17th.
It continues to be a great start to the school year. I have enjoyed watching our Kindergarten students, the class of 2035, settle into their first year of school, as well as our senior class of 2023, who are already thriving in their last year of school. We know this time goes by very quickly, and it reminds us of the importance of every day in between. Our attendance data keeps moving in the right direction, and I want to thank our students and families for helping us make this a priority this school year. I am confident that this will have a positive impact on our students' academic and social development throughout the year.
It is that time of year to get ready and register for the Warren Council PTA Homefest event on Friday, September 9th, from 4 PM - 7 PM. As part of this tradition, students in PK-8 are invited to participate in the Fun Run. Additionally, each elementary school and intermediate middle school’s PTA will be involved and will provide games for kids of all ages. Come see our high school students take on WCHS staff in a kickball game, shop from local vendors, and last but not least, purchase food from some of our local food trucks. Please register by using the following link, warrentwpcouncilpta.square.site, and look for additional information in your child’s school newsletters. We also invite our students, staff, and families to attend the home football game that night against Lawrence Central.

This year, Warren students will participate in three planned eLearning days, with the first one scheduled for Tuesday, September 6th. The purpose of these three days is to provide our staff with full days of professional development. The second eLearning day is Tuesday, November 8th, and the third planned eLearning day is February 21st. More details will be shared through teachers and school newsletters. The 22-23 school calendar is linked here.
In May of this year, The Far Indy East Magazine was launched to promote the inCREdible people, programs, and places of the Far Eastside of Indianapolis. This month, the magazine is focused on education and the great educational opportunities in MSD Warren Township. September’s issue will focus on health and wellness.
Thank you for your investment in our Warren students, schools, and staff!
Together…#WarrenWill grow our students!
