Hello Alcona Elementary families! In planning for our 2nd semester, we are getting a count of students that will be attending in-person and students that will be in our virtual learning program. If you plan to change educational choices for 2nd semester (from in-person to virtual OR from virtual to in-person), please contact the office at 989-736-8146. If you are continuing with the same option (staying in-person or staying virtual) for 2nd semester, no need to contact the office, we will plan for the same educational choice for your student. Please reach out with any questions that you have. Go Tigers!
It’s officially senior scholarship season! Scholarships through the Community Foundation for Northeast Michigan are now available! Apply at https://www.cfnem.org/ Local scholarships through Alcona High School will be available next week.
A new resource for schools, teachers, parents, and students is now available from Michigan's public television stations in early January 2021, offering supplemental programming to support learning for Pre-K to Grade 12 students, with a special emphasis on K-3 basics in literacy and math. The channel is already viewable through the internet at michiganlearning.org/live. Other public TV stations in Michigan are expected to add the Michigan Learning Channel within a few days. The Michigan Learning Channel has commissioned new lessons in math, social-emotional learning, and health and fitness - all of which are available at launch. A team of literacy education professionals selected the ELA/ELL content being broadcast at launch and is hard at work on a series of new literacy programs featuring Michigan teachers that will arrive by mid-March.
Dual Enrollment students: just a final reminder that tomorrow is ACC book pick up and drop off day from 8a-2:30p. Bring your fall textbooks to drop off in order to pick up your spring books. Math 112 & Eng 112 use the same book. See your email sent before break for more details.
