June 9, 2023 Dear Families, Miigwech to the Student Council students under the direction of Dr. Dale and Mr. Donaldson for organizing a very moving retirement assembly for me this week. It was so inspiring and I really appreciate all of the cards, pictures, the JKL quilt, the rocking chairs and all of the well-wishes. It has been an honor to serve as your superintendent for the past twelve years! Summer school registration is closed but parents have the option of filling out the summer school registration form and placing their student on the waiting list. You will be notified if spots open up in summer school. Summer school runs from July 5th through August 10th and provides our students with many opportunities to enrich their learning experience. Students in summer school participate in many “hands-on” activities in the areas of Culture, math, ELA, science, social studies, and physical education. Congratulations to our Kindergarten students who graduated this week. It was great to see our little ones participate in their first formal ceremony. They learned so much this first year at JKL and we are so happy to have them as part of our JKL Bahweting Anishnabe PSA family. We are so proud of them! Congratulations to our 8th Grade Graduates who will move on to high school. They will be missed but we know they are well-prepared to handle any challenges which may arise. We wish them well and hope they will visit often. It was wonderful to have Ogimaa-Minisinoo present at both graduation ceremonies. Miigwech to all of our staff and volunteers who made our K-5 Field Day possible.The students had a great time playing and socializing with peers and staff on this almost “last day of school.” It was great to see many families and JKL Board members in attendance. Today is the last day for the 2022-23 school year. It has been a tremendous year and our students have grown academically, culturally and socially. Miigwech to our staff who dedicated themselves to ensure the success of each student. Moving forward into 2023-24, we will continue to integrate our Ojibwe Culture throughout our school day and nurture all of the gifts given to our students by our Creator. Have a wonderful week and a great start to the summer! I have really enjoyed my twelve years at JKL Bahweting Anishnabe PSA and know that Dr. Carolyn Dale will do a wonderful job as your new Superintendent! Have an enjoyable summer!

April 28, 2023 Dear Families, Administrators and Board members attended the annual Northern Michigan University Administrator/Board Workshop this week. Attendees were reminded about the importance of setting high expectations for every student and doing whatever it takes to have every child achieve at high levels. There was also a session on School Safety from Recon Management, a company who specializes in helping organizations to be as safe from threats as possible. Board members and administrators also had “break-out” sessions with peers to discuss leadership and Board topics, such as developing an effective Board meeting. Family Dodgeball Night took place again this week for the first time in three years. All participants had a wonderful time trying to win the “Golden Dodgeball.” Both Red and Yellow teams were cheered on by their fans and everyone took the game seriously while having fun.

April 21, 2023 Dear Families, NMU was here this week for an annual Monitoring Visit. They met with small groups of administrators, teachers, paraprofessionals, and students to discuss our school and various academic, social and cultural programs. They also took the time to visit classrooms and observe academic instruction in real time. Moreover, they came on the day of our Drum Dance Social so we were also able to have them visit this event as well. NMU was very impressed with our JKL students, staff and programming. They shared that JKL is one of the top Charter Schools which they authorize. A big “thank you” goes out to Dr. Gordon who presented at our PAC meeting on an upcoming MDE Mental Health Grant. Our school has the opportunity to use this grant as a one-time purchase for mental health resources to support both students and staff. Dr. Gordon received some input from parents and is also surveying our staff for ideas as to how to best utilize these funds. We will keep you posted as we move forward.
