Grass Lake Community Schools "Points of Pride"
The staff at Grass Lake Community Schools is happy that you are exploring our school district and welcome you to look deeper by reviewing some of our points of pride listed below
The Grass Lake Community School district is one of 13 Jackson County Connected Community Public School districts, meaning that we are working together to provide our county’s students with the support they need and deserve by sharing our instructional assets.
Thanks to our community’s support our buildings have all been recently built or re-modeled. We take very seriously our responsibility to provide funding to keep them properly maintained in the future. All classroom areas are climate-controlled to enhance the learning environment.
A stable fund equity allows us to maintain our academic programming and cash flow from year to year without requiring us to borrow money for operations, while allowing us to secure a solid “rainy day fund” in the event of an unforeseen emergency purchase.
Grass Lake Community Schools will embark on the utilization of $1.89 million in grant money to provide computing devices for all Grass Lake Kindergarten through 12th grade students some time during the 2016-2017 school year. View a letter from Superintendent Dr. Ryle Kiser for more information about the project.
Our Little Warriors Pre-School and Daycare has proven to be very successful as we care for children ages 12 months to 12 years old in our pre-school, latchkey, and daycare programs. We continue our relationship with area colleges to offer our students opportunities to dual enroll and earn college credits while in high school. Little Warriors also employs the Great Start Readiness Program for preschoolers.
We are confident in our abilities to implement new programs, including our cooperative efforts with Jackson County’s “Energizing Education”, our implementation of “The Leader in Me” program in our Elementary and Middle Schools, our Elementary School's supplemental fitness program, and our High School's "Ignition" mentoring program and advanced placement program, both providing multiple opportunities for individual student comfort and growth. We are also advancing our students' opportunities in STEM education (Science/Technology/Engineering/Math) with deeper curriculum integration and with after school programming, while also emphasizing the arts and manufacturing. Learn more about our STEM education at George Long Elementary School.
Our fine arts program offerings have remained consistent while we continue to expand our offerings..
Our interscholastic athletics and extra-curricular offerings are diverse, plentiful, and growing. Also, our community's youth offerings offer diversity and flexibility.
We are continually cooperating with local municipalities to create an active and vibrant community for all ages and interests. This includes opening our buildings for public use of our fitness facilities and meeting rooms.
Our bus fleet remains current and we continue to expand our transportation availability to families living outside of our school district.
We are excited about the positive direction of our school district and our ability to maintain financial stability while effectively instructing all students in our care. We invite inquiries from interested parties to further discuss the qualities of our school district and how we are supporting our students.
Our District's Central Office is located at 899 S. Union Street on the east end of George Long Elementary School. We look forward to hearing from you by calling 517-867-5540, Monday through Friday, 8 AM-4 PM, or you can learn more by going to our district website, or see our school district's Facebook page by searching for "Grass Lake Community Schools", or you can use our "New Student Inquiry Page" page for more information.
