Treats on Monday

We worked a full five days this week!


I really value you and the time you have given to make sure our students have a great learning opportunity each and every day. Not to mention working thru the power outage this week too.


I am picking up treats for everyone Monday morning to help simplify your life just a little bit and give you one less thing to do in the morning. Thank you for all you do!


Hint....Death by Chocolate is my theme.

Building Leadership Team

Just a reminder that any staff member is welcome to attend the monthly meetings to help serve as the "guiding coalition" for the building. This team's primary responsibility is to unite and coordinate the school's collective efforts across grade levels.


Next meeting is Monday, February 10................3:45-4:45 pm in Media Center

Superintendent Flanagan

State Superintendent Mike Flanagan was asked to appear on Tim Skubick’s Off The Record show this week. The taping was yesterday morning and will air this weekend on Public TV stations across Michigan. The topics they discussed ranged from Snow Days, to reading scores and 3rd grade retention; school funding; the budget surplus; and the State School Reform District.

This link will take you to the program...hint you may want to fast forward a bit....

Science Fair Info Night

Pass the word that Wednesday, February 12 from 5-7pm, parents and students can drop in to explore topics, browse former projects and ask questions.
