WELCOME BACK!

We hope you enjoyed your holiday break and are well rested and ready for the second half of the 2015/2016 school year! Second semester is only a couple of weeks away! For some of you, Graduation is right around the corner! Please see your mentor teacher to go over your Graduation plan. Keep in mind, the IGNITE lab is open from 7:30a.m.-2:00p.m. on Fridays. This is a perfect opportunity to catch up on courses, receive extra help, and take any tests needed.

A NOTE FROM MRS. CARLSON

Parents and Students:


Please keep in mind that IGNITE students are required to be logged onto Gradpoint for at least four hours per day, four days per week. Unless special arrangements have been made with me, this is mandatory and must be followed in order for students to remain an IGNITE student. If these requirements are not met, students may be dropped from the program. Please understand the IGNITE Academy Program is designed to allow students to work from home and school. We strongly encourage students to be in school as much as possible to earn their High School diploma. Your student's mentor teacher is available to speak to our students and parents about their Graduation Plan upon request. If you have any questions, please call the school at 810-591-4776.


Thank you

Mrs. Carlson

Principal, Ancillary Programs
