Message from the Superintendent
A Letter from the Superintendent to the Trojan Nation
After what has been a fantastic year with the passage of the bond issue and the fact that two of our schools were named Reward Schools, I want you to know that we are not resting on our laurels and are already busy planning for the coming school year.
For example, we will be offering 5th grade band for the first time in recent memory, thus strengthening our excellent and growing music program. We will also be offering STEM (science/technology/engineering/math) courses to all of our elementary students for the first time. These STEM courses will certainly help our students learn how to apply their learning to real-world situations in important career-oriented ways.
In addition, there will be a few significant administrative changes in 2017/18. First, after years of dedicated service, Fruitport Middle School principal, Wendy Somers, will be taking a year’s leave of absence for other endeavors. We wish her well. Replacing Wendy will be our current Edgewood assistant principal, Tim Tiefenbach. Then to replace Tim will be Sephram Raymond who has worked for our district as a PBIS coach and behavioral interventionist. We welcome them both to their new positions!!
In closing the 2016/17 school year, please accept my thanks and gratitude for sending us such great kids, and for all your support this past year. 2016/17 was indeed a special year, but we are treating it as a springboard for an even better year to come.
Have a great summer!!
