SLCS District Update

June 10, 2021

Note from the Superintendent

Dear SLCS Families and Staff Members,


On behalf of the entire community, I want to offer “Congratulations!” and “Best Wishes!” to the members of the Class of 2021 and their families.


Seniors from both SLHS and SLEHS have upheld the tradition of excellence associated with our district through their many accomplishments in the areas of academics, athletics, and the arts. This was evidenced as honorees and their families gathered earlier this week for the senior honor’s assemblies at each high school.


Through their many accomplishments, each senior has represented themselves, their families, schools, and community with distinction throughout their time in SLCS. This Saturday, members of the Class of 2021 will enter their respective school stadiums as high school seniors and leave as high school graduates. May they forever wear the label of SLCS alumni with honor, dignity, and pride.


As the graduates look back over their school career, may this year serve as an example that no challenges are too great to overcome. They will move on from SLCS with the knowledge, skills, and confidence necessary to meet the promising future for which they are destined. May each of you make a difference in your piece of the world!

Congratulations Class of 2021!


Sincerely,

Steven P. Archibald


Superintendent

Special Education

The SLCS Special Education Department’s Adult Transition Program provides work based learning opportunities for our young adults (18-26 year olds). The adult transition teachers have worked hard to build relationships with businesses within the South Lyon Community, but we need more. If you own or know of a local business that would be interested in partnering with our adult students, please encourage them to call 248-573-8220 or email toths@slcs.us. Great things can happen when we work together. Thank you for your support of the South Lyon Community Schools Adult Transition Program.

SLCS Shout-out

This week’s shout-out goes to SLHS Art Teacher Niki Keena for her contribution and dedication to SLHS. In addition to quality teaching, she is the head of the Student Council. Niki is quick to volunteer her time for any cause. Her professionalism and natural leadership ability make her an exemplary role model for students and the SLHS Community.
