Message from the Principal:

Welcome back from our wintery break. We have had some changes to our MAP testing schedule to better serve our students by focusing on MAP in early January and March just before we begin the state of Michigan’s new online testing process in late April. Also, we are very thankful for our Board of Education as we celebrate Board Appreciation this month. 

As we approach the end of first semester please talk with your child and their teachers if you have any concerns on their progress.

January 26th is the start of second semester and at this time students will be taking a few different classes as an elective course is typically only one semester long. This will be a chance for students to keep improving as their grades will start over for classes giving them another opportunity to further develop their academic skills.

Starting second semester we will be revising our building procedures to better serve our students. More information will be sent out once these procedures have been finalized for implementation.

CHANGE OF INFORMATION: Please make sure your student(s) contact information is correct and current. It is very important that this information is kept current at all times. Please make sure the contact names are correct as we will NOT release any student to anyone who is not on the master list. Please call or stop by the school office.

PARENT CONNECT: Is a web portal for parents to access information about their students. Lunch information, grades and news from school will be available with a simple login and password. Contact the school secretary to sign up today.

MEDICATION: All prescribed medications must have a written prescription form from the physician accompanying any medications given out to the students. Please make sure all prescriptions are clearly labeled, including inhalers. Inhalers must have a prescription on the box, or labeled on the inhaler without a box. This ensures us that we are administering the correct medications to your students. Thank you for your cooperation.
