Student Council

Giving Back

The student council held a contest to provide thanksgiving food baskets to those families in our area that needed assistance. The first hour class in each grade who collected the most non-perishable food received a pizza party courtesy of Yale Sunrise Marathon. Overall, the Junior High collected 25 overflowing baskets! Thanks to all who participated and a special thanks to Yale Sunrise Marathon.

The winning first hour classes were: Mrs. Barrett (6th), Ms. Biondo (7th), and Mrs. Macias (8th).

P.T.O. Meeting to Follow

Wednesday, Dec. 17th 2014 at 6:15pm

198 School Dr

Yale, MI

Once again, December will have no Parent Information Night Meeting (P.I.N.). However, there will be a P.T.O. meeting.

STAFF SPOLIGHT - Mrs. Morency / Mrs. Sheldon

Thanksgiving Lunch

Mrs. Morency's class put together a full Thanksgiving meal for parents and staff. The students in her class were responsible for preparing the dishes. It turned out delicious!

Mr. Keith Kodet

Mrs. Sheldon's brother, Mr. Kodet, came to visit Mrs. Morency and Sheldon's classes to speak about his job as a rescue diver for the St. Clair County Dive Team. He brought the necessary equipment with him and not only spoke about his job, but also showed the students the equipment and how it worked. As you can see in the pictures below, it was an engaging time that the students were excited about.

Mrs. Sheldon's Writing Club

The students in Mrs. Sheldon's Writing Club raised funds towards Blood Water Mission. Below is a thank you card we received. This is just another opportunity that our students and staff chose to assist others who are in need.
