From The Principal

tlietzHeadshotoct2018It’s almost unthinkable that we’ve reached December, but as my children remind me at home, we have only three more Monday’s until Christmas break!  We are not just in December but nearing the midway point of Quarter 2 and we will then race toward the end of the Semester and Exams just after the Winter Break.  This time of year moves fast.  This is when we value your commitment to your students more than ever as keeping them on track at home is important as the Holiday fun comes! 

The Holidays also bring with them a yearly opportunity for our school community to give back.  I am grateful for the generosity of our students, families, booster organizations, and all those who call themselves Chieftains.  We constantly strive to improve, while always remembering our rich history. Over the next few weeks we will collect for Toys for Tots, the Kiwanis Canned Food Drive, and will donate to Macomb Charitable Foundation, and so many other organizations in the area to bring joy to our community.  At a Chieftain’s core is to ensure the well-being of his or her tribe.  These charitable and service opportunities typify that dedication.
