HAPPY VETERANS DAY!!!
WHY THE HIVE
PRESCHOOL AND LATCH KEY UPDATE
WE ARE OPEN!!!
Both our GSRP and latchkey programs have opened and are running classes. I had the distinct pleasure of covering as a teacher in one of our GSRP classes this week. I loved being able to experience preschool firsthand. The experience really provided a lot of insight into the importance of our early childhood programs. Plus it was A LOT of fun!!! Our students are amazing!! They can build, count, and love to do art! IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THE GSRP PROGRAM, SEE THE FLYER BELOW AND BEGIN THE ENROLLMENT PROCESS!!!
PLUS, we started latchkey this week and it was full of exploration and science. I appreciate our parents that have worked with us as we get things off the ground. I look forward to working with the community to create an enriching and meaningful program for all students!
SOME END OF THE FALL SEASON HIGHLIGHTS!!

STUDENT ATHLETIC PASSES
FOOD SERVICE FOCUS GROUPS
In an effort to improve the dining experience in the district, the food service department is turning to its customers. They have gathered information through surveys and held several focus groups to try to provide a high-quality experience to our students.
A new addition to the high school cafeteria is the seasoning station! Students can stop by and add some custom flavor to their lunch. Thanks to our student focus group for suggesting this idea!

SENIORS NEED TO KNOW...
SENIOR GOOGLE CLASSROOM
Attention Seniors. In your graduating Google classroom, there are scholarships posted. Please check out the scholarships with upcoming deadlines. These are posted under the topics October Scholarship deadlines and November scholarship deadlines.
All of the scholarships currently listed are valued in thousands of dollars. One is even up to $200,000 and most scholarships are offering more than an award.
Do not wait until the night before the deadline as you may need recommendation letters and it is only appropriate to give someone a 2-week window to write you a recommendation letter.
Attention Juniors and Seniors:
Are you considering college? Do you have questions about the application process, campus life, and specific programs offered by colleges, or just want to gather more information to help you finalize a decision about what college you would like to attend?

The following colleges will be visiting the Concord High School campus in the near future: Grand Valley State University, Michigan State University, Eastern Michigan University, and Spring Arbor University.
