2022/2023 School Year, One Week In

Good afternoon, Blackhawks! We have made it through our first week of the 2022-2023 school year. Most of you are off to a great start. I know that there are some changes to work through and adjustments to be made. I thank you for reaching out to me so we can address them together, and for your patience in doing so. You have been great. There are some new pieces of information and continued resources below, so please read on.

What To Expect As The Year Progresses

Now that we are approximately one week in, here is what you can expect:

  • Expect your student to work for roughly 45-60 minutes per day, per course
  • By now, you should have been reached out to by a counselor regarding your course progress. These will happen once a week. It is extremely important that you respond to communication.
  • Your main point of contact for contact specific questions is your course instructor. If you need help doing so, don't hesitate to reach out to us at 248-627-1820.

NWEA - Secondary

Just like last year, all students are required to come into the building to complete NWEA testing. This year, we will test in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. Keep a look out for additional information. But here is what to expect:

  • Middle school will test at BMS
  • High School will test at the high school. Testing dates will be September 28th and 29th. This is for all ninth and tenth grade students. More details on times will come out next week.
