The goal for the reading initiative is for students to identify their Hoosier Family of Readers and read each day throughout the summer. A reading family can be any combination of caring adults and children. Over 3,000 free online books are available for students through an IDOE partnership with MyON. For a message from Glenda Ritz, Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction and directions for accessing the online books click here http://www.doe.in.gov/hoosierreaders

West Noble Middle School wants parents to know about a resource for parents provided by the Indiana Department of Education. It is Indiana's Parent Information and Resource Center (PIRC). We know schools improve when they partner with parents. You can access it easily at www.fscp.org. This site gives parents helpful hints on helping your child.
New enrolling students should have a health record, birth certificate, a grade card from the previous school, and custodial papers if applicable. If the student is gifted or special education it is nice to have the supporting documentation.
