From The Principal

Wildcat Families:

April 13th marked the end of the 3rd Quarter marking period.  Grades will be updated early next week and report cards will be sent home electronically to everyone with a PowerSchool Parent Portal account, on Friday, April 20th.

8th grade students begin the MSTEP math test on Monday, April 16th.  All dates of the 8th grade testing are in the calendar section of the Wildcat Weekly.  We ask for your help in avoiding absences on testing days.

The 2018 UCS College Fair is being held on April 18th  at Henry Ford II High School (please note that HFII's driveway is one-way).  The College Fair will begin at 6 p.m.  Please see attachments for more details as well as a list of colleges and universities who will be represented.  It is always a great event and it’s never too early to start some post-secondary planning.

Finally, last week we held our first lockdown drill since the transition to the A.L.I.C.E. protocol.  Please take a few minutes to watch the video- -that students and staff have seen and to discuss the lockdown drill with your child.

By setting expectations and encouraging lifelong learning for all students, we create collaborative team members, knowledgeable thinkers, creative problem-solvers, and respectful, responsible citizens.
