TK Transportation Information 2019-2020

Dear TK Parents/Guardians,
We are already thinking about what your transportation needs will be for the next school year. We have a new Transportation Information Form on our website that we will use for any changes you will need to make for the 2019/2020 school year. If you are new to the district, it is important that you fill out the form. If your student’s transportation needs will not be changing from this school year to next school year, there is no need to fill out the form.
Parents of 6th-grade students: Our routing software did not transfer the student’s information for students advancing from 5th grade to 6th grade. If you could please fill out your student’s transportation needs for the 2019/2020 school year using our Transportation Information Form, it would be greatly appreciated. Please fill out this form even if you plan to transport your child to and from school.

Principal Leaves Big "Princess" Shoes to Fill

Page Elementary Principal Mike Gelmi announced recently he was leaving TK Schools for a position closer to home where he would be able to spend more time with his family. Everyone can understand that. Kids grow up so fast. But his leaving the district definitely leaves some very big "princess" shoes to fill. Gelmi leaves a legacy of wacky hats, socks, wigs, and especially reading month challenges he's happily shared with students year after year.

Page Principal Announces He's Leaving TK

Good morning Page Families,
I wanted to communicate with our Page Elementary families that I have accepted an elementary principal position at Central Elementary School in Grandville Public Schools for the 2019-2020 school year. It is a K-6 building with some opportunities to grow professionally and half the distance from my home near Zeeland.  I am really looking forward to the opportunity but also excited to be able to be home at different times to do things like coaching my boys baseball team etc., that just doesn't work currently with the commute.  The distance and family time is the biggest reason for my decision, but excited about a new opportunity to grow.
