Summer is flying by and our staff has been working really hard to get our school ready. As some of you may have heard, we had a very small electrical fire here at school on August 2nd. Our neighbors and fire department responded quickly thankfully and minimal damage occurred. We're working extra hard to get the whole building cleaned and ready for school.
There may be a change in transportation this fall due to us having only one bus driver. Right now it's looking like Powell Township School staff will not be able to transport students who attend Negaunee or Marquette Schools. More information will be forthcoming after the Powell Township School Board meeting on August 15th. Please contact your student's school district directly with any questions.
School starts Tuesday, September 6th and we're all really excited! We have some new faces again this year due to 3 retirements and one resignation. Mrs. Errica Ingram is our new Special Education Teacher, Mrs. Jessica Laxo is our new Preschool / Kindergarten Teacher, Mr. Tom Gauthier is our new Maintenance Technician and Mrs. Amy Venier is our new Behavior Aide / Playground Supervisor.
Our bus will be dropping off and picking up students on the Deutsch Avenue (Thunder Bay Inn) side of building just like we did pre-Covid.
I'm sure there is a lot more to update you on and I'll be doing that soon. Enjoy the rest of your summer and we'll see you soon!
