  • Three Noblesville schools named 4 Star
    2/24/2018 Three Noblesville Schools, Hinkle Creek Elementary School, Noblesville West Middle School and Stony Creek Elementary School, have been named Four Star Schools by the Indiana Department of Education.
    The Four Star Schools designation is designed by the department to recognize great schools in Indiana.
    “Receiving designation as a Four Star School signifies a pursuit of academic excellence among students, educators, and the administration,” said Dr. Jennifer McCormick, Indiana superintendent of public instruction. “I am honored to recognize these Four Star Schools for their hard work and dedication in preparing their students for a bright and prosperous future.”
  • Noblesville Schools Meal Pack Program launches this weekend
    2/24/2018 The first of many weekend meals will be sent home to approximately 200 Noblesville children in need this weekend.
    Kristina Trusty, Hinkle Creek kindergarten teacher, started the Noblesville Schools Meal Pack Program to will provide meals to children every weekend of every month. These meals will have a variety of items that will be consistent and child friendly.
    Trusty heard of other meal pack programs in the area and realized Noblesville could benefit from a similar program. The Hamilton County Harvest Food Bank has been mentoring and providing advice to Trusty throughout the process.
    “When it was brought to my attention that surrounding areas were putting meal programs in place for children with food insecurities at home,” Trusty said. “I knew that this was something that Noblesville children would benefit from.”
    According to the United States Department of Agriculture Economic Research Service, 12.3 percent of households were food insecure in 2016.
    Elementary students were recently sent home with a letter asking their parents to respond if they would like their children to be included in this free of charge program.
  • Noblesville Schools dedicates new transportation center
    2/24/2018 Noblesville Schools officially cut the ribbon today on their newly-constructed transportation center at a public dedication event. The new center is located at 19790 Hague Road adjacent to West Middle School and replaces the previous location on Field Drive near Noblesville High School.
    “Our former transportation center was built in 1978 when Noblesville Schools served approximately 4,000 students and couldn’t provide the space we need today to serve over 10,000 students,” said Beth Niedermeyer, superintendent of Noblesville Schools. “Our new facility significantly increases capacity, providing room we need for our bus fleet, maintenance bays, office management, meeting space, driver parking and storage.”
    Transportation staff relocated to the new Hague Road location in January and bus routes have been running from there since school resumed following winter break.
