Eagle Shout-Outs

Eagles Shout-Outs are a positive behavior recognition to a student from a staff member.  A student can be caught doing something good, helping a teacher or classmate or going above and beyond in the classroom or school.  Students are called to the office to be congratulated by Mr. McVoy or Mr. Bennett and their names are put into a weekly drawing.  Our 3 most recent winners are: Dylan Baxter, Cadence Veen and Stephanie Mueller.

Eagle Travelers

We are off to a great start with our Italy 2023 trip!  We already have 17 students signed up to travel with us and several parents.  We will be hosting fundraisers to help support these students over the next two years, so please keep an eye out for opportunities to help our students broaden their horizons and travel the world.  A web page is in the works, but in the meantime, feel free to contact Kelly Carlson or Dominic Taylor for more information.

Showcase 2021 is scheduled for May 26 & 27.  West Michigan Student Showcase is an annual celebration of excellence for high school youth of West Michigan.

Since 1981, high school students from Mason, Muskegon, Newaygo, Oceana, and Ottawa counties have had an opportunity to be recognized. For many of our student nominees, this will be the shining moment of their high school years – for others, the beginning of an amateur or professional career as actors, musicians, writers, athletes, and artists.
