Pre-Holiday Post!

Every one is feeling it right now. There's a bit of an itch - a tension that is palpable. Students (and staff) need a break! We have been on a grind since the start of the school year, and this Thanksgiving will be a welcomed respite.

There are a couple of things to keep an eye out for if you're interested in seeing our middle schoolers in action!

  • The Robotics Team will be competing in Mason this weekend and in Howell on 12/3! Bleep, bloop, bleep, whirrrrrr (that's Robot-talk for "Good luck")
  • The Boy's Basketball teams have begun their seasons. You can find the full athletic calendar here.
  • Science Olympiad is practicing after school and will begin competition soon!
  • The Drama Club is working their thespian hearts out! 
  • Our Making Money class, with Mr. Thorburn, is taking a field trip to the Junior Achievement Finance Park in Detroit. For more information check out this link.
  • Our WEB Leaders are planning some fun activities for our 6th graders, but I've been sworn to secrecy... gobble, gobble.
  • 6th graders are headed to the Henry Ford Museum to watch the IMAX movie about our National Parks on December 1st. I can't wait!
  • Band, Choir, and Orchestra have concerts the week of 12/5
  • The first home swim meet of the year is 12/12. Come visit Beach to watch aquarial (I made that word up) students compete!

Don't forget, the trimester ends 11/22. Schedules change and grades are finalized.

Enjoy your Turkey Day!
