Principal Update #21

Wildcat Nation,

As I reflect on the last couple weeks to write this update, (I missed a week) my mind bounces in many directions.  First I want to publicly thank Jay Mulder, Rob Patton, Lacey Dean, Dawn Misiora, Dave Erickson and the rest of the MHS staff for keeping things moving forward and rolling pretty smoothly.  They had to wear “extra hats” and take care of many items that I was not able to.

I would like to say I was spending time exploring career opportunities for our Wildcats. That was actually a byproduct of various life and school events that occupied much of my time.  Without boring you with a ton of details I will give you a brief list of the occupations we have interacted with in the last two weeks:  Hospice Nurse, Hospice Social Worker, Hospice Chaplain, Assisted Living Nurses, Assisted Living Activity Director, Assisted Living Administrator, Funeral Director, Cemetery Sexton, Estate & Trust Lawyer, Financial Advisor, Urgent Care Doctor, Family Doctor, Emergency Room Nurses and Doctor, EMT Ambulance Drivers, Hospital Security, Pediatric Intensive Care Unit Nurses (@Helen Devos Children's Hospital), PICU Endocrinology Team Doctors, Children’s Diabetic Endocrinologist, Diabetes Educator, Diabetes Social Worker, Pharmacist, Medical Insurance Representative, Behavioral Threat Assessment and Management (BTAM) Trainers, MAISD Superintendent, Muskegon County Sheriff, and all of the normal position in a school district.

The experience had been educational, but I would have rather been enjoying time with our Wildcat students and teachers.  They are doing amazing stuff.  Some I have seen, most I had to hear about.

Our FFA chapter did very well at the district contest they hosted on Wednesday and are sending 45 students to compete at the Regional Leadership Contest. All district winners and 2nd place finishers move on to regionals in two weeks at Lowell High School.  Congratulations to all of the competitors for their hard work preparing to compete and represent Montague!! Mrs. Feuerstein, Mrs. Lemmen, Ms. Kaminski and Ms. Schwass should be commenced for their work to prepare our Wildcats for these contests and their future.  We also thank Mrs. Lemmen for great photos.

With the SAT  test coming soon in April for our Juniors it is a great time to get Free SAT Practice through CollegeBoard.  

There will be a Wildcat Booster meeting on Monday evening at 5:00 pm in the MHS cafeteria for any interested in supporting our students and athletes.

Next week we have 17 athletic or academic contests. Please check out for the most up to date schedules and results.

Be True Blue,
Curt Hansen
