    We do collect the Box Tops coupons. If you or a family member are saving them, you can send them in to your teacher at any time. Each one gives our school a dime. They really add up fast and we can use that money for anything we need for our building. Clip them and save them someplace all summer long then send them in to school in the fall.
    Thanks for helping us with this.

  • Weather Cancellations,Delays and Emergencies 
    What is the best way to stay informed of weather related and other emergency cancellations or delays?    
    1. Sign up for PowerSchool E-ALERTS! 2. Sign up for school closing alerts on the WWMT website
    3. Listen to local radio. WBET-Sturgis, WTHD-LaGrange, WLKM­-Three Rivers, WKFR, WRKR, WKMI-Kalamazoo and Battle Creek. 4. Check TV Stations. WWMT(CBS)-Kalamazoo, WNDU(NBC)-South Bend, WOOD(NBC)-Grand Rapids, WOTV(ABC)-Battle Creek, WXSP and CW7 West Michigan for all the latest information. If you don't get a phone call when school is cancelled, then our school doesn't have your correct phone number. Anyone who has given us a current phone number will be called when ever there is a school cancellation or delay. Please call 659-1565 if you are not receiving a call. 
    PLEASE BE SURE YOU ARE KEEPING YOUR AUTO CALL NUMBER CURRENT. CALL 659-1565 TO MAKE CHANGES.
