Encouraging and developing the greatest potential of each student
The Titanic, a basketball hoop and ball, a fox and a football, a water ride at Disney World, a castle and a flower. It’s incredible what fourth-grade students can create using their imaginations, a little ingenuity and some building materials.
Six Thornapple Kellogg High School students were honored today with the first of what will be monthly TK Strong Leadership Awards. The first honorees this year are Ava Hess, Gavin Czarnecki, Madilyn Chivis, Zoey Ring, Elizabeth Middleton, and Chase Dannenberg.
With pitchforks, shovels, rakes, wheelbarrows, smiles and positive attitudes, Thornapple Kellogg High School Student Council members joined in Barry County United Way’s Day of Caring by spreading mulch and spreading hope.

TK students to the rescue! Well – at least in a high school physics class simulated activity.
Three teachers were honored with the Shelley Erb “Above and Beyond Award” given annually by the Thornapple Kellogg Education Association. Erb is a retired first-grade teacher whose endless energy and enthusiasm for teaching is the inspiration for the award given annually to a teacher who goes above and beyond what’s expected.
Thornapple Kellogg High School seniors didn’t just show up for their last first day of school – they showed up nearly an hour early! Several members of the Class of 2022 gathered about 6:30 a.m. in Bob White Stadium to watch the sun rise on what they all hope is a great last year at TK.
