Thank You!

I wanted to say how proud I am of our entire school community and how everyone has rallied to support each other. Thank you to MARESA, Pathways, GLRC, The Marquette County Health Department, our neighboring school districts, the HOPE organization, Pastor Thompson at Christ the King Lutheran Church, and anyone who reached out in support of our students and staff. Your kindness, presence, and willingness to help have made a tremendous impact as we continue to heal and mourn the loss of our friend.
