Encouraging and developing the greatest potential of each student
Sisters attending Page Elementary School practiced giving to others when they chose to write a grant to help Family Promise of Barry County and make sure the kids who stay there have outdoor play items. Their efforts paid off with a grant from the Youth Advisory Council of Barry Community Foundation to help homeless families in Barry County.
As work progresses on the additional classrooms at the elementary schools, plans are being finalized for the construction of the new TK Learning Center. The TK Board of Education reviewed preliminary drawings at their December meeting. Construction is expected to start in late spring or early summer this year with completion anticipated by fall 2022.
Adapting to change is never easy, but it’s a much-needed life skill. Students, from kindergarten to high school, are getting some quick lessons again in adaptability as they moved from in-person learning in November to remote learning until a scheduled return to the classrooms Dec. 9.
In an age of immediate electronic messaging, some Thornapple Kellogg third graders are learning and loving the art of old-fashioned letter writing as they get to know elementary school pen pals in Texas. It’s a writing lesson with a real-world purpose that helps them practice basic writing skills like grammar, punctuation and writing complete sentences.
Taking over the leadership role in a new school district is never easy and doing so in the middle of the school year in a pandemic is about as tough as it gets. Dan Remenap, who takes over as Thornapple Kellogg’s new superintendent Dec. 14, said he’s ready, willing and eager to take on the challenge.
Thank you to the community for once again being so supportive of TK Schools and approving our bond. We are excited about the projects and are ready to start working on construction details and plans, requesting bids and beginning work.
