A Note from the Principal
Thank you so much to everyone who joined our NORSE Award Assembly on Wednesday. This was our first time including families at a NORSE Assembly, and students loved having special adults in the audience!
A HUGE shout-out to our 4th/5th grade student leaders, who worked hard to set up the cafeteria for the assembly and worked as greeters for our visiting guests.
⛄️Winter is HERE! Thank you for sending winter gear with students this week. It made for some fun recess time! We are always taking donations of outgrown coats and snowpants that are still in good condition.
🚙Reminder that our back car line lot has a slight incline and can be very icy! Remember to take it slow now that ice has arrived.
As usual, if you need anything at all, please feel free to call, text, or email: (231) 534-4439 or email@example.com.

Note: Students who are reporting sore throats are often ending up testing positive for COVID. Keep an eye on symptoms and let us know if your family needs an at-home COVID test! We will always send an email notification to your family if a student in your child's class is at school and then tests positive for COVID-19.
Wow! All Students Participating!

Invitation: Winter Concerts
Join us for our Winter Concert! Because there is limited space in the Auditorium, we ask that you try and attend just one of the performances so that as many families as possible can attend. Any parents, grandparents, family members, or friends that can attend the afternoon concert are encouraged to do so as there will likely be more space available.
December 15th Day 2pm & Evening 7pm Performance
At Suttons Bay Auditorium
$5 Suggested Donation at the Door
We look forward to seeing you at the show!
