Chalk Talk

By Anthony Berthiaume
Superintendent New Lothrop Area Schools

Dear Parents, Students, Staff, and Community Members,

I hope your family had a safe and relaxing spring break, just two months left and counting. Our kindergarten roundup and preschool registration is fast approaching. Kindergarten roundup is by appointment only and will be held Monday, May 7. Also, preschool registration packet pick-up has begun as of March 6. Please contact the elementary office at (810) 638-5026 for further information regarding both kindergarten and preschool registrations.

Additionally, our National Honor Society induction ceremony will be held on Wednesday, April 11, at 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium. This event reminded me that it would be nice if our staff, parents and community had a listing of upcoming events to recognize our students and possibly join us. Here are a few of our upcoming events to note:

2018 Clinton/Shiawassee Honor’s Luncheon - Tuesday, April 24 (students and administration only).

GAC Scholar Athlete Banquet - Wednesday, April 25 (students and administration only).

CTE Recognition Banquet - Tuesday, May 1 (recognized students and family and administration).

Shiawassee Scholars Reception - Tuesday, May 1 (recognized students and family and administration).

Science Fair – Wednesday, May 2 at 5:30 p.m. in the elementary school gymnasium.

Art Show - Thursday, May 17 at 6 p.m. in the high school library.

Baccalaureate - Wednesday, May 23 at 6 p.m. in the high school auditorium.

Senior Honors Night - Wednesday, May 23 at 7 p.m. in the high school gymnasium.

Preschool Graduation - Thursday, May 31 at 6 p.m. in the elementary gymnasium.

High School Graduation - Sunday, June 3 at 2 p.m. in the high school gymnasium.

Another event that I would like to call your attention to is a community meeting/breakfast with the Superintendent. This event will provide an opportunity for students, staff, parents, and community members to hear and have a dialogue with me about the current and future direction of the district. The event will be held on Saturday, May 5 at 9 a.m. in the high school cafeteria. Please RSVP by 3 p.m. Friday, April 27 with my executive assistant, Kelly Green at (810) 638-5091 ext. 2222 or via email kgreen@ newlothrop.k12.mi.us, so we know the number of meals we will be serving for the event. I am looking forward to hosting this community meeting.

It is a special time of year. As a district and community, we appreciate our students’ determination to succeed and want to recognize them for their accomplishments this year. I hope you are able to join us for these upcoming celebrations and events. We take great pride in making sure we offer the best education possible to our students in the classroom and with our extra-curricular programs. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. My office phone number is (810) 638-5091.

Yours in Education,

Anthony Berthiaume, Ph.D.
