In Michigan, there are approximately 13,000 children in foster care. Right here in the Alcona/Iosco area we have over 90 kids in foster care and only 27 foster homes to care for these children. Foster Care identifies and places children in safe homes when they cannot remain with their families because of safety concerns. Foster families provide these children with the consistency and support they need to grow. What it Takes to be a Foster Parent? Foster children need caring individuals who can provide a safe and nurturing home. The primary goal during foster care is to reunite the child with his or her parents. This can take some time - we need caring adults who are willing to provide stability and safety for children in their care. For more information go to www.michigan.gov/hopeforahome or call 1-855-MICHKIDS.
Please see suggested High School supply list.

The physics classes had a guest from Harvard come in last week to introduce the students to quantum physics. Elizabeth Himwich taught the students for a week about advanced physics topics and Peter Mapes took interested students on a flight at the airforce base. The students learned how to take off and land the plane as well as simulated zero gravity and 2G. This allowed the students to experience the science that they learned about in the classroom.
