Principal's Message

Our building theme this year is to "Beat Average".  We, as a staff, have identified key components that will help our students to be successful at Mackinaw Trail.  Each month we will focus on one of the following components. 
Attendance/ Tardies, Organization (Clean lockers & binders), Work Completion (Late & Missing Assignments), Motivation (Setting Goals)
September we focused on Attendance.  Each homeroom kept track of daily attendance as well as tardies.  The class with the lowest percentage of absences and tardies was recognized at our all school assembly.  
Congratulations to Mrs. Biller's 5th grade class and Mrs. Crouch's 6th grade homeroom!  They will be creating the video for November/ December's theme of "Work Completion".  
Our focus for October is "Organization".  Staff will be conducting random locker checks and students will be encouraged to keep their planners up to date.  We encourage parents to support your child in their organization, by allowing them to find tools and systems that are meaningful for them. Some students are successful using planners while others find success with binders and folders.
November will be "work completion".  Staff will be monitoring students late and missing assignments.  You can help encourage your son/ daughter to become more personally responsible by having them check Parent Portal at home and explaining the grades they are getting.  Together we can make a difference!  
We will have our assembly on Friday, October 31st to reveal the winner of "organization" and kick off our next theme.  

The videos for each month will be posted at the bottom of this section.

After-School Tutoring

Mackinaw Trail is offering a free, after-school Math tutoring program starting Tuesday, November 4th, tentatively through March 27th, Monday – Thursday from 2:30 – 3:30 PM.  Math only is offered this year. Free transportation is available via the Wexford Transit Authority (CWTA) for a maximum of 12 students each day for those students who request that option and live within the drop off boundaries.  If the student is using the CWTA, additional paperwork needs to be completed and signed by the parent/guardian PRIOR to the student staying after school.  Forms are available in the office and on the rack outside of the office.

Students will need to sign up in the office no later than noon on the day they will be staying for tutoring.  Students MUST sign up EACH time they will be staying.  If you are picking your child up after tutoring, please be at MTMS no later than 3:30 pm.

Art To Remember

The PTO is holding an Art to Remember fundraiser and would love for all students to participate. 5th graders will create their art with Mrs. Crouch or with their Teacher. 6th graders were given special paper and instructions to take home to create their art on their own. Please return all completed art to the PTO mailbox. You will receive a order form in November. Those that turned their art in by October 20th will receive a personalized order form in November. Thank you for supporting your PTO! (For the website: For more information & project ideas visit )
