Parents will be able to register through the GCSC webpage at www.greencastle.k12.in.us. All state and GCSC forms required for registration are available online.

All returning students will need their Harmony information to register. While the usernames and passwords remain the same as last year, all students will receive an email on July 20 confirming the information.

Any parent who does not receive the email containing their username and password or has questions about online registration should contact GCSC Database Coordinator Carol Call at ccall@greencastle.k12.in.us.

Online registration may be completed from any computer with internet access. Any parent who does not have internet access or would prefer to receive assistance with the process is encouraged to register at the GCSC booth at the Putnam County Fair July 22-30.
