Week of 11/28

A Message From The Principal

A three day week is upon us! We have two full days Monday & Tuesday & on Wednesday we have early dismissal at 1pm -- no Wednesday school will take this week.

We have around 7 weeks left of this semester. It may sound like a long way out but it's really right around the corner. It takes a village here at school and literally all around us to help students achieve their very best.

Native American Heritage Month!!!

November is Native American Heritage Month. This month is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, or histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people. Please help celebrate the month of November by wearing your moccasins, ribbon shirts and skirts, or traditional clothing to celebrate your indigenous history and culture.

The school encourages students to attend as many school events held after school as possible, without interfering with their school work and home activities. Enthusiastic spectators help to build school spirit and encourage those students who are participating in the event.

However, in order to ensure that students attending evening events as nonparticipants are properly safe-guarded, it is strongly advised that all students be accompanied by a parent or adult chaperone when they attend the event. Students under the age of 13 must be accompanied by a parent or adult chaperone to attend school events. The School will not be able to supervise unaccompanied students nor will it be responsible for students who arrive without an adult chaperone.

The school will continue to provide adequate supervision for all students who are participants in a School activity. Students must comply with the Code of Conduct at school events, regardless of the location.


Dual Enrollment is a wonderful opportunity for high school students to take a college class at Northwestern Michigan College in Traverse City. Enrolling in college coursework while still in high school can build a student's college confidence and it also increases the likelihood of degree completion. Students with a 3.3 GPA are eligible for dual enrollment and should see Ms. Schmidt with any questions. Jason from NMC will be here Monday and Thursday to help students with the application process and answer any questions.

Senior Parents! Please click here for Scholarship information. Scholarship opportunities will be added as they arrive in the counseling office. Most scholarships become available in the Spring.

Student safety is our number one priority at all times and one way that we can make sure that we are doing that at all times is to keep exterior entrances closed during the school day. Please do not prop exterior doors open at any time during the school day. We will be stepping up our efforts to keep doors closed, so please don't be surprised if the doors are closed after you prop them open.
