Marlette Jr/Sr High News

November 2021

From the Principal's Desk

Can you believe that we have already completed a quarter of this school year? Time is flying by, but there is still plenty left to commit to doing our best! November is the perfect month to reflect and remind ourselves all that we have to be thankful for and the many positive events happening in our lives. I am thankful for my terrific family, an encouraging church, excellent teachers and support staff, supportive parents who partner with us to ensure every student's success, and students who try their hardest every day and always give 100%. I am also thankful to live in a community as great as Marlette! We may not be perfect, but we are working to improve every day. With the continued struggles associated with the COVID pandemic and increasing polarization of our country, we have to be intentional about what we focus on and how we respond (Habit 1: Be Proactive). If we are breathing, we have something to be thankful for today!

If you need to contact me, my office phone number is 989-635-4935, Google Voice number is 989-272-3718, and email address is Thank you all so much for trusting us with your children!


Our sports teams have been doing a phenomenal job this season. Volleyball plays Wednesday, November 3 - , our Football team plays Friday, November 5 -, and Cross Country states is Saturday, November 6 - Fire Up, RED!
