From The Principal:

GLK-UAIS Families,

The 2022-2023 school year is off to a great start and we have some exciting events coming up.

Open House will be September 28 at 7pm.  The program will start in the cafeteria and parents will then travel to their students classes to meet with each teacher.  We encourage families to check PowerSchool to be sure parents know student schedules.  There will be an informational college application review presentation for interested SENIOR PARENTS ONLY before the open house program.  This will be from 5:45pm - 6:45pm.    

Also, the Student Senate will be hosting the annual Powder Puff football game against International Academy Macomb on October 1st.  The game will take place at Stevenson High School from 2-4pm.  We encourage everyone to come early for the tailgate from 12-2pm.  Tickets will be available for purchase at the gate ($3 for students and $5 for non-students).

Thank you,

Mrs. Beebe
