MacGregor's Message 4/6/18 

Dear Families,


Over the past few years, there has been a very concerted effort at Howell High School to encourage students to pursue post-secondary educational opportunities. For some students, this means attending a traditional four-year college or university. For others, it means pursuing an apprenticeship or entering a skilled trades program. This effort has been strengthened through a partnership with the Livingston County College and Career Access Network or LCCAN. To support this work, LCCAN is hosting a fundraiser on Thursday, April 26. The Championing Futures Road Rally is an exciting scavenger hunt that will take participants to locations along Grand River from Brighton to Fowlerville. All of the proceeds from the event will be used to fund scholarships for Livingston County students entering a skilled trade program in 2018. To learn more, please visit https://goo.gl/UvRu5f.


Today marks the end of the third quarter of the school year. As a reminder, we will not be sending home paper report cards. Instead, report cards will be available in the PowerSchool Parent Portal next Friday, April 13 at 8 a.m. If you have not yet set up your PowerSchool Parent Account, please visit https://goo.gl/CuCq4k. If you would like to receive a paper copy of your child’s report card, please contact their school’s main office.


In my last message, I invited you all to attend the 2018 State of the District event. However, I inadvertently provided the wrong date for the event. The 2018 State of the District will be on Tuesday, April 24 at 6 p.m. at Three Fires Elementary School. I apologize for any confusion this may have caused and hope you will consider attending.


Three Fires Elementary students celebrated March is Reading Month with a no device challenge and by collecting items for the Livingston County Humane Society. Recently students in Highlander Way Middle School’s medical detectives class completed a crime scene investigation and six Howell High School students have qualified to compete at the National Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) Students Taking Action with Recognition (STAR) competitive events in July. You can read more about each of these stories below.

With help from Officer Banfield, our school resource officer, the students collected and analyzed forensic evidence to find out who committed the crime. Officer Banfield taught the students how to lift fingerprints from items and showed them how police officers work a crime scene.
