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 created the video for November/ December's theme of "Work Completion".  
Our focus for October was "Organization".  Staff will be conducting random locker checks and students will be encouraged to keep their planners up to date.  Congratulations to Mrs Biller's class (again!) and Mrs. Huff's 3rd hour Leadership class (1st Marking period).
November was "work completion".  Staff monitored students late and missing assignments.  Congratulations to Mrs. Veenstra's 5th grade class and Mrs. Campbells 3rd hour Social Studies class! They will be creating our next video for January's theme of :  Motivation!Students will be setting personal goals.  We will work with them on setting short term reachable goals!

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