Principal Update #4

Wildcat Nation,

It has been a very busy and very enjoyable 7 days since I last wrote to you. Last Friday we had a great turnout for the Wildcat Walk-About with beautiful weather. Thank you to all of the attendees and volunteers who helped make that a great community event. Speaking of volunteering, if every student and parent volunteered just 2 hours a month in some capacity we could have over 2000 hours of support and service to our community each month!!  That is roughly equivalent to a full year’s work for one person. If you would like to help with athletic tickets email Dawn Misiora misiorad@mapsk12.org or with concessions email Letisha Mikkelsen mikkelsenl@mapsk12.org. 

Last Saturday afternoon I took one more opportunity to enjoy our beautiful beaches and great Lake Michigan temperatures.  While walking for exercise, I ran into Kiley Miller and her mother Amanda. Of course I took the opportunity to ask Kiley about some of her classes and the start of the year.  I also quizzed her.  Mr. Kerr will be happy to hear that she nailed the Geometry questions, confidently explaining arcs, nodes, and traversals. . . on the beach no less!

Tuesday, I was able to see Mr. Brunson and the Cross Country teams compete on one of the toughest courses in Michigan at Branstrom park in Fremont. The grassy and dirt hills combined with narrow wooded trails with more hills challenged Cammie Erickson, Delaney Schultz, Grace Torsch, Claire Genter, and Ashlyn Beck as they scored for the girls and Owen Fairchild, Clay Johnson, Braeden Johnston, Jimmy Thommen, and

Nathan Davis as they scored for the boys. I am sure they all slept well that night.

Thursday I was able to watch a little bit of our Lady Wildcat golfers in action at the Montague Wildcats Invitational.  It was a pleasure to see Mackenzie Goudreau, Natalie Kellogg, Brooke Berry, Lauren Smith, and Abby Woller in action with great teams from all around the state. Sophie Brewer, Braylyn Bultema, Kennedy Johnson, and Cadence Fox won the B division!! Brook Berry had a busy day as I saw her leading the marching band in the parking lot for the 1st hour, competing in golf at OCT and then singing the national anthem at the JV football game.  

I also had the opportunity this week to spend some time in 19 different classrooms. It is always a highlight to see our students and teachers in action with the business of education. A list of students and teachers doing great things would be too lengthy for this update, but I feel confident that good things are happening.

Montague at Whitehall Football game tonight, with a dance to follow.  Radio: WLCS 98.3  www.983wlcs.com   Livestream: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQJCkA6I_SQ

Our sports teams are very busy next week with 18 events.  Please check out https://montagueathletics.com/ for the most up to date schedules and results. We have a few Blue Crew shirts still available at the high school office for $20. New this year we will also sell a Blue Crew Pass for $20 that will also get students into events free, for those that do not want to wear the shirt.

Please reach out if you have any questions as we move forward in the school year. 

 

Be True Blue,

Curt Hansen
