Spring Break 2014
The school district is not changing the dates this year.
 Spring Break will start Friday, April 4 through Friday, April 11, 2014.  At this time a decision has not been made whether to add days on to the end of the year.  We have exceeded the snow days and are waiting to see how the rest of the winter plays out and also any directive from our legislators in Lansing. 



 



 


Senior Graduation Meeting January 23rd with Mr. Gough
Time is going by quickly for our seniors!   Mr. Gough discussed the important things students need to do to graduate.  Order forms from Douglas Photography were passed out for Commencement pictures (more are in the office). Senior parents were there to encourage the students to attend the Senior All Night Party.  They spoke about this being the last time they would all be together to just have fun. The students were reminded that if they need some financial help to attend, to contact the Senior Parents (contact information is on this page under the title "Senior Parents").
The handouts they were given are linked to the Information box to the left

High School Reminders
State Law Addressing Graduated Driver Licensing
The Michigan legislature recently approved changes to the state law addressing graduated driver licensing, placing new restrictions on teen drivers.  Effective March 30, 2011, the nighttime driving restriction for new drivers with a Level 2 graduated drivers' license (GDL) is 10:00 p.m.  In addition, drivers with a Level 2 GDL cannot have more than one passenger under the age of 21, except if the passengers are members of the driver's immediate family -- or if the trip being taken is to or from school or a school-sponsored event.

PARENTS

Parent Advisory Council

The Parent Advisory Council is a vehicle for parents to become involved with issues and curriculum areas of the high school.  The purpose of the Council is to inform parents of what is happening at the high school with regards to policy and what is being taught in our school; it serves as a rumor control device for us to hear what the community thinks or perceives as happening at school and to gain input from the community on issues directly related to the students’ needs

If this sounds like something you would like to become a part of, please call Di Dellinger, secretary at the high school, at 254-5202.  Meetings are generally held the third Tuesday of each month with some exceptions due to holidays.  Our next meeting will be on

Tuesday, April 22 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM

(Joint meeting with Middle School PAC)

Last meeting of the school year:

Tuesday, May 20, 2014 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

in the Media Center at the high school.

Look for the year calendar of meetings to the left on this page under Information.
