Our community is incredibly supportive of our district as well. We have high-achieving athletic teams and award-winning extra-curricular programs. Despite having nearly 40% of students coming to us via school of choice, our constituents passed a nearly $17 million bond a few years ago to upgrade our buildings. We also were recently fortunate to have earned a $123,000 Michigan State Police competitive grant to upgrade security features in our buildings.
