Principal Update #34


Wildcat Nation,


Last Friday we held the 138th Commencement exercises for Montague High School.  The event was live streamed by Catchmark Technologies, and can be viewed at  (Skip ahead to the 30 minute mark on the video).  While it is exciting to see our seniors graduate and move on in life, it is also bittersweet to know that we will not see their smiles and hear their laughter in the building as a group anymore.


Saturday we hosted the MHSAA Regional Track meet.  We had 15 schools with boys and girls teams competing throughout the day.  The weather held off for us, we had great volunteer help, 7 boys and 8 girls qualified for State as our girls Captured their 2nd consecutive Regional Championship.  Winning on their home track was extra special.  15 Montague Athletes that qualified for State Finals are Saturday June 4th at Kent City.


Monday morning 9th, 10th, and 11th graders gathered in the high school auditorium.  The 1st order of business was to advance 1 year in our seating design in the auditorium.  The class of 2023 took over the coveted “front and center” seats as the new leaders of the building.  The classes of 2024 and 2025 then “moved up” a section.  After that we heard a presentation called, “Shattering the Myths, The Power of a Choice.”  The presentation was hosted by DJ Hilson of the Muskegon County Prosecutor's Office and featured three guest speakers recovering from choices with alcohol, tobacco, and drugs.  The program allows students in grades 6-12 to hear the personal stories of people who have faced the untold consequences of substance use.   Shattering the Myths, The Power of a Choice.


Throughout the week our teams were at the mercy of the weather, with various games canceled or postponed.  Check out for all the schedule and score updates.


Enjoy time with your family and friends this Memorial Day weekend as we remember those who have died in service to our country. 


Make sure your students are checking grades and finishing any work/projects as we approach the end of school.  Students have 8 more days to complete the school year.


Be True Blue,

Curt Hansen
