8th GRADE TRANSITION
TO HIGH SCHOOL INFORMATION
A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A FRESHMAN AT WARREN CENTRAL/WALKER CAREER CENTER
The Twenty-First Century Scholars Program began in 1990 as Indiana's way of raising the educational aspirations of low- and moderate-income families. The program aims to ensure that all Indiana families can afford a college education for their children.
Income-eligible 7th and 8th graders who enroll in the program and fulfill a pledge of good citizenship to the state are guaranteed the cost of four years of undergraduate college tuition at any participating public college or university in Indiana.

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
Creston Middle School has begun collecting Box Tops to earn equipment for our school. You'd be surprised at all the different types of items that have Box Tops on them...for example: Kleenex!! Ask friends and family to help too! Each Box Top is worth .10 cents to our school. However, don't hold on to them very long...they do have expiration dates. Students are asked to turn their Box Tops into their Success teacher or put them in the donation box in the Main Office.

RECYCLE YOUR PAPER PRODUCTS!
Recycle your paper products with us!! We have joined with Abitibi-Bowater to recycle paper...from January - July 2012 alone...we recycled 19.21 tons of paper. Just in that time we saved:
327 trees from being cut down
133,567 gallons of water
8,875 gallons of oil
1,153 pounds of air pollution kept out
of the air we breathe
57 cubic yards of landfill space
78,761 kilowatt hours of electricity
(That's enough electricity to completely supply 9 homes for a full year!)
We cannot accept cardboard or phone books, but welcome: newspapers, magazines, envelopes, junk mail, old school papers, greeting cards, advertisements, catalogs, paperback books, and paper sacks. See the yellow and green recycle bins in the back parking lot.
The students of Creston Middle School could really use your help collecting Coke points!! The valuable codes can be found:
- on the underside of Coke caps on 20
ounce, 1 liter, and 2 liter bottles
- on the inside of the cases on canned Coke
We use these points to purchase much needed supplies for classrooms and every lid counts! Please save these and have your student bring them into the Main Office. Ask family and friends to help too. You can also establish an online account and donate part of all of your points to CMS.
After enjoying your refreshing Coke, you can drop your aluminum cans into our BIG BLUE recycling bin located in the back parking lot. For every can recycled, you help save enough electricity to run a TV for 3 hours...while throwing that can away wastes as much energy as pouring out half of the can's volume of gasoline.
Creston Middle School is a Market Day school. Orders can be submitted at school or online (www.marketday.com). Creston's school number is 7551. All profits from the Market Day sales support PTSA activities and projects.
