Congratulations to Mike Huss, who has served as our Custodial/Maintenance Director for many years in addition to Transportation Director for most of that time! While we will still have him with us through December, he will be retiring this year. Although we've asked him repeatedly to just stay, he seems to want some more time with the grandkids and his wife, Kelly. We can understand that! A posting for his position is this link https://5il.co/1fjxv on our website. Congratulations to Natalie Rogers! Natalie will be moving to the part-time Business Office Assistant position in the board office, utilizing her Business degree. This will allow her to still keep her role as our Communication Specialist working part-time on PR for the district. We're excited to have her in this new role starting August 12th. Please congratulate her! This means we will also have an opening for a Secretarial Aide position available which is available at this link and on our website: https://5il.co/1fjxu Also attached are postings for the following Schedule B positions which were added to the most recent contract to better support our student athletes: Boys Bowling Coach- Fall (https://5il.co/1fjxw); Mr. Francis will continue as the Girls' Coach Asst.

Bergen Mowery and Paige Lynch attended multiple leadership seminars as well as conducting classes throughout their three days at MSUPAC Drum Major Camp late June. They studied many different movements involved with conducting a marching band that they hope to put to good use this season. Paige and Bergen were also introduced to mace-work, whistle theory, and some intros to the famous MSU drum major back bending. They gained knowledge on how to better their position as co-drum majors this year as well as methods to help the band retain the most information they can out of this upcoming marching season. They are excited for the 2022-2023 marching season and can’t wait for everyone to join them on the field!

Dalton Rinehart was able to visit our soybean plot this morning for the Michigan FFA Association Crops Management Contest. While there, he evaluated flowering and insect pressure. Though there were Japanese Beetles present, there was little damage and the plot looked very good overall! Be sure to attend AgroExpo in August to watch our team presentation.

I hope this message finds you enjoying your summer and a more relaxed pace! There are several items on the August 2nd ballot pertaining to schools that I would like to share with you. If you feel willing, please share the information with others you know in the Coleman Community School District. Coleman Schools Operating Millage RENEWAL: The August 2nd primary is just weeks away and the Coleman Community Schools' Operating Millage Renewal will be on the ballot. You can vote now by Absentee Ballot through your Township or City Hall. Information about the Millage can be found at this link: https://5il.co/1cjdn This is NOT a bond and is NOT a tax increase, but a renewal ensuring the critical operations of Coleman Community Schools to pay for our teacher, staff, heat, lights and other operational requirements to run a school.  This is also a non-homestead renewal meaning it has no bearing whatsoever on your primary residence (which is your homestead). Non-homestead is applied to vacant land, second homes and businesses. The State of Michigan requires every school district to periodically get approval from their local voters.  Midland County School Resource Officer (SRO) Millage RENEWAL: This millage renewal is on the ballot in August as well, allowing for our SRO, Deputy Brandan Hodges, to be in our schools daily supporting and mentoring students, monitoring behavior, providing us updates on the latest technology and safety strategies and training for our staff and students, assisting with traffic and acting as a resource for administration, staff and Comet families. Again, this is a renewal of the current millage already in place.  Midland County Educational Service Agency (MCESA) Bond: Students from all Midland County Schools, including Coleman, receive support from the Midland County ESA for Career-Technical Education (CTE), Early Childhood Services, Special Education programming and funding and Technology Services. The MCESA has a bond on the ballot for August 2nd. This is a new bond specifically for use by ESA and the programs it supports. The maximum number of years the bond of any series may be outstanding, exclusive of any refunding, is 12 years. A homeowner with a home with a taxable value of $100,000 pays $50.00/year. For more information on this bond proposal, you can Google Midland County Educational Service Agency and click on the bond link on their homepage. Whether voting by absentee ballot now or in person on August 2nd, please get out and vote. Should you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact me at jmccormack@colemanschools.net or 989.465.6060. And if you would, please take a minute to share with friends and families of the Coleman Community School District. Excited to see our students and families at Open House on August 24th and in school on August 29th! As always, thank you for your support of our schools, Jen McCormack, Supt.
