MSDWC Schools Named 2022-2023 Family Friendly Schools

The Indiana Department of Education recently announced that three MSD of Wabash County Schools have been named 2022-2023 Family Friendly Schools.

Metro North Elementary School earned this important designation for the first time, joining Sharp Creek Elementary School and Northfield Jr/Sr High School which both earned their third renewal on the list.

Launched in 2015, the Family Friendly Schools designation focuses on addressing the academic, physical, emotional, and social needs of students while providing the needed resources and fostering active family involvement in the schools and the community. 

Schools that receive this designation have proven to:

  • Welcome all families into the school community

  • Communicate effectively

  • Support student success

  • Speak up for every child

  • Share power

  • Collaborate with the community

“Involving our families and community in our schools is paramount in addressing the academic, physical, emotional, and social needs of our students,” stated Superintendent Mike Keaffaber. “I am proud of the schools that have achieved this distinction of being named Family Friendly schools by demonstrating excellence in engaging families in their children's education.”
