Builders club had a successful fundraiser for St Baldricks and our team the "Bald Bulldogs" led by Mr Wenz. We raised over $300 when students donated a dollar to participate in the Hat and PJ days.
We also had a great visit with our senior friends playing bingo and we hope to make one last visit before the year is out.

Seventh grade students recently participated in a Boater’s Safety course through the Macomb County Sheriff Marine Division. At the end of the course, students took a 50
question test over the material covered in the text and in class. If students passed with a 70% or better, they earned a boating safety certificate. 145 students out of 180 total (81%)
passed and earned their certificate. Eleven students earned 100%!
Students who received a perfect score of 100% are: Riley Ameel, Cate Kovacic, Gabriella Minor, Gwendolyn Pogodzinski, Emeline Rodger, Gabriella Selewski, Cassandra Yestrepsky, Alivia Cucchiara, Connor Kohl, Amber Trelfa and Lillian Zwiez. These students will be invited to a field trip with the other 100 percenters throughout Macomb County to tour the Macomb County Sheriff Marine Division station, go out on the Sheriff's boats, tour the DNR next door and have lunch with the deputies.
Congratulations to all students who earned their certificates!

Dress Code Remimder
Choose earth-friendly landscaping. When landscaping your yard, you can protect your kids, pets, and the environment from harm. Use pesticides sparingly. Put mulch around trees and plants. Water your lawn only when it needs it (1-2 times a week is usually sufficient) and choose plants native to Michigan. Once established, these plants tolerate dry weather and resist disease.
