From The Principal

Spring is here!

Hello Falcon Families,


I am looking forward to more sunny days this time of year.  Our kindergarten through sixth grade students are preparing for the district assessment during these last couple of months.  Additionally, our third through sixth grade students will be demonstrating their knowledge by participating in the State of Michigan's annual assessment (MSTEP).

We are thrilled to continue to meet the families of our incoming kindergarteners for the next school year.  An informational meeting will be held at our school on March 24, 2022 at 7:00 p.m.  Families are always encouraged to give us a call with any questions about our new online enrollment.

Lastly, the warm weather also brings many social events for our school community.  The latest details about dates and times can be found in our weekly Falcon News that is emailed out to families.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call our office at (586) 797-4900.


Have an amazing day!

Mrs. Brunetz
