We are excited to announce Libraries 360 for the 2016-2017 school year. Libraries 360 is a cooperative effort of the La Porte County Public Library and the La Porte Community School Corporation with a goal to improve and enhance school libraries and ease access to public library resources. Students may borrow items from the public library and have them delivered to the school. They may also return public library items to the school library. Students will be issued a library card, making public library resources accessible and available to them. More information regarding this exciting program will be shared with all schools when the 2016-2017 school year begins.
Procedures to Access Work When Absent
All Kesling teachers are required to use Google Classroom to post daily work and assignments. Below you will find the step by step instructions on how to access Google Classroom from home.

Athletic Handbook Forms & Physical Forms
Athletic Handbook Forms & Physical Forms
With students beginning to sign up for Sports, we would just like to send out a reminder of the requirements your student must meet to be able to participate.
There are several forms that need to be completed before they can even try out for or begin practice in ANY sport.
These forms are divided into 2 separate packets:
- The Athletic Handbook includes10 Pages, with 3 Forms that need to be filled out COMPLETELY and SIGNED. Please do not remove these forms from the Athletic Handbook. We need the Athletic Handbook stapled together. This way, the forms are easier to file, and therefore, easier for the coaches to access. Some of these forms need the STUDENTS’ signature as well. Please be sure to have them sign before they turn their forms in.
- There are 4 Pages included with the Physical Form. A History Form (completed & signed by Parent/Guardian), a Physical Form (completed & signed by child’s Doctor), IHSAA Eligibility Rules, and a Consent & Release Certificate (signed by Student & Parent). These Pages should also not be separated, making them easier to file, and access.
These forms are available in the Front Office at Kesling, and should be turned in to Mrs. Satoski in the office.
We are PROUD of our Athletes and their accomplishments, and look forward to your child being a part of our team!
Thank you for your cooperation!
