Honor Club Trip
Our Honor Club was able to travel to visit Kalamazoo Community College and catch a basketball game at Western Michigan University last week. These trips are designed to expose our students to the many different offerings and opportunities available on local campuses. Our students had a wonderful time!
8th Grade Completed Scheduling for HS
Your 8th grade student was able to view a presentation in the Auditorium in regards to available electives for HS. The following day, all 8th graders had the opportunity to choose their classes for the 2023-24 School Year. They have registered their classes in PowerSchool and can share that information with you. We have included the information that was provided to them below for your review.
Please feel free to review the attachments for course descriptions and sample four year high school plans.

- 6th Grade students will be able to describe how strong emotions can influence the decisions they make.
- 7th Grade students will be able to:
- Distinguish helpful thoughts from unhelpful thoughts
- Analyze how unhelpful thoughts can negatively affect the decisions they make
- 8th Grade students be able to reframe certain types of stress as opportunities for growth.
