*The closer we get to the Holiday break, the more we need to collaborate and communicate with our colleagues on our students. Our students need us to be all hands on deck in supporting them over the next 2 weeks.... Be visible! Be in tune to what's going on! Be supportive of each other and our scholars! 

*Our new SW, Ms. Kim Johnson starts this Tues. She will be a great addition to a very strong SW team! Her office will be in the upper hall where the majority of our other SW's are located. 

*Hope that you can make the Choir Concert this Thursday evening at the Ypsilanti Free Methodist Church. Go out and support our Choir Program! 


Please Note:

No former student(s) are to come into the building during school hours. We are happy that they want to come back and see us, but we need to make sure that their visit is not during school times.
