Hello Middle School Community –

Parent-Teacher Conferences 

Our fall student-led parent conferences will take place this Thursday (5:00 to 8:00 pm) and Friday (1:30 to 3:30 pm). We encourage all parents to attend with their child who will lead them on a review of their 1st quarter work along with an opportunity to meet with each teacher for a brief discussion of their academic progress. Conferences take place on a first-come, first-serve basis. Lines can be long on Thursday evening so we encourage you to attend Friday’s afternoon session if possible.

Reminder – Friday, November 12th is a half day for students.  Dismissal is at 11:30 am.

SEAB Applications

The Greenspire School District is seeking interested candidates to be a part of our first Sex Education Advisory Board, or SEAB. The SEAB functions in an advisory capacity to The Greenspire School’s Board of Education in accordance with Michigan Laws. The purpose of the SEAB includes periodical reviewing of sex education curricula and materials to ensure: a) age appropriateness, b) developmental appropriateness, and c) medical accuracy, with the ultimate goal of promoting healthy development and reducing rates of sex, pregnancy, and sexually transmitted diseases among students.
