Principal Notes:
As a result of strong parental interest in learning about talking to teenagers about sex and risky behaviors, we will be supporting a professional presentation at Fremont High School on May 30. We are limited to the first 50 people who RSVP. Please see below for reservations:

Fremont High School and Middle School parents are invited to a workshop, Talk Early & Talk Often, designed to empower them with tips and resources for how to talk to teen children about abstinence and sex. The workshop is at the High School May 30, starting 5:30 p.m. A free dinner will be provided to attendees of the workshop, which is for adults only. Child care will be provided for parents with young children, who will also be provided with dinner. Attendees will be entered into gift prize drawings. Register at or by calling 231.924.5350.

Graduation Sunday:
The weather looks very questionable right now for an outdoor graduation on Sunday. Because the weather pattern currently shows a brief window of opportunity from 1-4 p.m., we will be making a very late decision. We usually like to make the decision by 10:00 a.m. but we may be looking at a decision as late as 12:00 p.m. If we have any hint of rain, we have to error on the side of caution and move the event to the High School Gymnasium.

We learned today that we were ranked 26th in the State of Michigan for best High School Athletic Programs. Our participation and the large number of sports we offer weigh heavily on the rankings. It is nice to see our high rates of participation and large number of opportunities be recognized. As you folks know, I don't put a lot of time thinking about rankings but it is nice to know people notice what we are doing. The link can be found here:
