#WhyYouMatter Speaker Series - Video Link

Our #WhyYouMatter theme this year comes from a partnership with a county-wide mental health campaign called #wishyouknew. The #wishyouknew campaign aims to spark honest conversations by sharing our truths, feelings, successes, and hardships in an effort to better support each other and connect as one Chelsea community.

This year we kicked off our campaign with another Speaker Series at CHS. It featured some incredible speakers who poured their hearts out on stage. The assembly featured an amazing performance by John Zainea and Katie Minnick (CHS teachers), and powerful speeches from CHS student Riley Thorburn, Alumni Derek Schaedig, John Daniels (Coach), Art Finger and Valerie Johnson (CHS teachers).

I hope you will take some time to watch the video of the Speaker Series. Maybe it will help you think about how you would finish the sentence "I wish you knew...." (because you will - its coming to all of your buildings soon!)


"We wish you knew how grateful we are to work with such amazing people in this district!"

SWWC - Cosmetology Competition - Skills USA

On February 4 the SWWC Cosmetology program participated in the regional Skills USA competition held at the Oakland Schools Technical Campus NE in Pontiac. Cosmetology students from the region competed in the categories of Cosmetology, Esthetics, and Nail Care. Chelsea students Phoebe Gibb and Logan Brosnan were among the competitors. Logan Brosnan competed in the Esthetic category, carrying out daytime, evening, and fantasy make-up techniques. Logan took 5th place overall with an impressive mermaid fantasy design. Phoebe Gibb competed in the Cosmetology category, which required students to complete 3 different haircuts, and a long-hair, formal upstyle. The haircuts included both men's and women's cuts and styles. Phoebe's precision cuts and her intricate woven design on her elegant formal style helped her take 1st place in Cosmetology. She will be going on to the State Skills USA competition held in Grand Rapids in April. Congratulations to Phoebe and Logan!
