Message from the Superintendent
A Letter from the Superintendent to the Trojan Nation
If you have driven by Fruitport High School recently, you will see huge piles of dirt, foundations poured, and block walls going up. It is truly exciting to see so much progress in such a short period of time. In fact, I didn’t expect this amount of construction until after school was out in June!
We are working on ways to keep you updated on construction progress. One of the best ways to see our progress is to friend “Fruitport Community Schools” on Facebook. There you will see weekly updates in both pictures and descriptions of what was accomplished. We are also compiling pictures showing construction progress on our website under the heading of “Bond Information.” As a special feature, we are working to create a live feed of the construction site that you can access on our website. I’ll let you know if we are able to pull that off. Finally, I will be giving you monthly updates through my Letters to the Trojan Nation.
While I recognize that we have already “broken ground,” we are still going to celebrate this project with a “Groundbreaking Ceremony.” This event will take place on Monday, May 21, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. and be held under a tent on our property between the current high school and Edgewood Elementary.
This “Groundbreaking Ceremony” will give state government officials, present and past Board of Education presidents, FHS administration, students, and the leaders of the Yes for Fruitport’s Future group the opportunity to express their gratitude to the community for approving this project, and share what the project means to them and our community.
I hope you are able to join us for this historic event. I also hope that if you have a Yes for Fruitport’s Future t-shirt, you will wear it and participate in the photo op we are providing. You will have access to all of the professional pictures taken at the event via our website or from central office.
With that, we are wrapping up state testing and getting ready for end of year celebrations and activities which will culminate with the Fruitport High School Commencement Ceremony held at the LC Walker Arena at 7:00 p.m. on Friday, June 8. I hope that all goes well for you and your students as the 2017/18 school year comes to a rapid conclusion.
With gratitude to you and our community,
Bob Szymoniak, Superintendent
