Important Dates to Remember

September 26 Board of Education Meeting 6 pm

Message from Superintendent Cybulla

Dear East China Schools Community,


The first days of a new school year showcase our joy for learning. Over the past couple of years we may have found new ways to learn but we also rediscovered how much we value our tried and true traditions. These first days of school bring us open houses, sporting events, theater productions, band performances, the chance to see old friends and make new ones.


This year we are excited to welcome 244 new kindergarten students to ECSD, and we have 365 seniors that will graduate at the end of this school year. ECSD, through the strategic planning process and our successful bond passage has planned for the county-wide pattern of declining enrollment. ECSD is in the process of consolidation and the renovation of all of our school buildings. I want to again thank our community for the support of the bond that passed in March of 2020. Through this support we will be able to update our student, staff and infrastructure technology, renovate all of our school buildings, update our playgrounds, update parking lots, open an Early Learning Center and build an Innovation Center that will allow us to continue to offer a variety of learning opportunities for our students as we become smaller in size.


As we move through this new school year please support the amazing staff in our schools as they dedicate each day to educating and encouraging our students. We are thankful for all they do for our students.

Marine City Campus Welcomes New School Resource Officer


Marine City Campus is proud to introduce our new School Resource Officer Tom Kenyon. Officer Tom is a part of Marine City Police Department; he is working full-time at Marine City Campus.

Officer Tom is retired from Madison Heights Police Department. He was born, raised and lives in St. Clair with his wife Melissa, who is a second grade teacher at Pine River Elementary. Officer Tom has four daughters, who all attend St. Clair schools Sophie, a senior, Avery, a junior, Grace, a freshman, and Celia, a seventh grader. He enjoys many outdoor activities, such as, hunting, fishing, camping, and running but his daughters' soccer and other extracurriculars do not leave him much time for these activities. Officer Tom, however, would not have it any other way.

Welcome to the orange and black!

Mrs. McNabb's Algebra 1 Class

Algebra 1 students used slope-intercept form to determine the number of rubber bands it would take to have Barbie complete a successful bungee jump. They recorded Barbie's fall using 1-6 rubber bands in class and used this information determine a linear equation for her to "safely" drop from the outside bleachers.

PLTW

Marine City Middle School PLTW students got to know each other by working in cooperative groups to "Save Fred". They had to get Fred in his life preserver after his boat capsized. The students were not allowed to use their hands, or harm Fred in any way.

7th Grade Pre-Algebra

Pre-Algebra 7th graders started the year off using teamwork skills to complete Build It activities.


Believe in Your Selfie

On the first day of school, students went around the building and took selfies for Ms. Gardner's classroom bulletin board, "Believe in Your Selfie!"

Work Based Learning Students at SCHS

Students in Mrs. Vojnovski’s Work Based Learning class enjoyed a sunny day beautifying St. Clair High School. With assistance from the owner of Vandenbosche Farms, David, along with Patricia Biebuyck, students planted their mums in pots and placed them along the front entrance of the school.


Mrs. Vojnovski and paraprofessional Brenda Daniel assisted Landon, Gavin, Michael and Samantha in learning some skills to help them in the workplace. They learned to listen, share their ideas on where to place the planters, collaborate as a team and organize their work area. The result was not only a beautified entrance to the school, but lots of smiling faces!


Thank you Vandenbossche Farms for your time and for providing the mums and other material and making the student’s day a memorable one!
