SEEKING DONATIONS: MUNISING HIGH SCHOOL ADVANCES 3 STUDENTS TO FORENSICS STATE FINALS. On April 28, Munising’s team will collaborate with Westwood High School to send the students on a charter bus to compete in the MIFA State Finals sponsored event. Munising has qualified at least one student to participate in the BCD Michigan Interscholastic Forensics Association statewide event for at least two decades or more. Fortunately, this year’s event will be in person instead of via zoom meetings. Unfortunately, due to the expense of hotels, judging, transportation and participation, the team’s past fundraising will be largely depleted. Students will have a very lengthy Saturday, April 29 of competition, anywhere from 8-12 hours for the 12 different categories, initial rounds, semi-finals, and final rounds. Friday will be used for practice, and Sunday for an early afternoon return. Forensics provides students the opportunity to represent the Munising Public School District at the state level. These Mustangs will travel to Troy High School to face hundreds of contestants at levels B, C, and D levels–all at the same time. Class A will have its own separate tournament. Forensics competitors specialize in public speaking using evidence, show huge confidence and problem solving, and two of the three competitors were ranked in the top 10 in the state last year. Munising will be hosting a public viewing of our state finalists at the high school around noon on Friday, April 22. If you are interested in viewing the performances or helping to sponsor a student, please contact Coach Heather Nayback. The estimated meal costs for this trip are at least $300 per student, excluding the coach. We are asking for community support to help give our students a great opportunity to showcase our public speaking skills and theatrical talent. Any donations would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for your continued support of the Munising Community! Donations may be made by check (preferred) or cash. Please make checks payable to "Munising High School" and write "Forensics State Finals" in the check memo line. Checks or cash may be dropped off in the office or mailed to: Munising Middle-High School 810 State Hwy. M-28 West Munising, MI 49862 Please direct questions to Heather Nayback at heather.nayback@mps-up.com or at her personal cell at 906 202 9098 and leave a voicemail or text message.

The students pictured below were the 2 winning teams from a tower building contest in class. Students used uniformly sized small sticks or blocks to build the tall structures. The structures of all teams had to be certified by Ms. Frantti to ensure that the proper instructions were followed. STEM is an acronym that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Students in the STEM course learn about the interplay of these 4 areas through project-based learning.

She is already planning to make changes that will hopefully lead to earning "1 ratings" in the near future. She also noted that the middle school band student also received good feedback from the judges that will enable them to improve.

QUIZ BOWL TEAM: Congratulations to the Quiz Bowl Team and Coach Lynch for a great season and representing Munising well in the semifinal match against Sault Ste. Marie on Friday.

COUNT DAY/ATTENDANCE REMINDERS: This Wednesday, February 9th is Spring Count Day and is a very important day for Munising Public Schools and all districts across the state as the number of enrolled and attending students determine the amount of annual funding a district will receive from the State of Michigan. It is critically important that students attend school daily and report to all classes each day. Also, students that are taking online courses must complete 2 two-way communications with their Teacher of Record. These communications are logged and are an important mechanism for pupil accounting of online learners. Improving K-12 student attendance rates in Munising is a priority and goal for the district as well as the newly formed Alger County Youth Services Task Force. ELIGIBILITY CHECKS/ENTERING GRADES: Ms. Anderson will be recording and reporting academic eligibility for our student-athletes to our coaches by NOON TOMORROW. The eligibility report is run at noon every Monday to determine weekly eligibility for our student-athletes. SPECIAL GAMES: On Thursday (2/10) the Hockey team will face the Marquette JV here in Munising at the Alger Centennial Ice Arena beginning at 6:30pm. This would be a great opportunity to watch our boys slap the puck. Also, this coming Friday (2/11) Munising will be hosting a quadruple header of basketball games against NCA. Preceded by two JV games, the Varsity match ups will be at 6:45pm (Girls) and 8:15pm (Boys). The Pep Band will play at both games and it will also be "Parents Night" at our Varsity games.

SEEKING DONATIONS: MUNISING HIGH SCHOOL FOUNDS "MICHIGAN YOUTH IN GOVERNMENT" CHAPTER; SENDING DELEGATION OF HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS TO THE CAPITOL IN LANSING. On February 16th, we are sending a Munising Delegation of 26 high school students and 3 teacher advisors/chaperones (Mr. Burtis, and Mr. & Mrs. Lynch) to the YMCA Michigan Youth in Government (MYIG) Conference. This program is open to all middle and high school students from across the state who are interested in the political process, current issues, and government. With an active high school program in place, Mr. Burtis and Mr. Lynch are considering starting a middle school MYIG program next year (22-23). This program provides students the opportunity to represent the Munising Public School District at the state level. These Mustangs will travel to Lansing for a 5-day 4-night conference. At the conference, the students will work with more than 600 students from all over the state, debating and discussing the most important topics of today. Students will also have the amazing opportunity to sit on the House and Senate floors of our Capitol and debate bills and proposals that they wrote with our own unique ideas. This program is a great opportunity to experience civic engagement, and provide experiential learning for students in both the legislative and executive branches of government. Earlier this fall, Munising High School was awarded a $9,880.00 grant that covers transportation, hotel rooms, and the majority of student/school registration fees for the conference. HOWEVER, IT DOES NOT COVER MEAL COSTS. The estimated meal costs for this trip are $2465. We are asking for community support to help give our students a great opportunity to learn and practice civic engagement. Any donations would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for your continued support of the Munising Community! Donations may be made by check (preferred) or cash. Please make checks payable to "Munising High School" and write "MYIG Meals" in the check memo line. Checks or cash may be dropped off in the office or mailed to: Munising Middle-High School 810 State Hwy.

MUSTANG REVISED EXAM SCHEDULE FOR JAN. 20, 21, & 25 Hello Middle-High School Students & Parents: We will be using the schedule that you see in this post. Please note that Thursday (tomorrow) and Friday exams will remain as originally scheduled. The exam schedule slated for today will be pushed to next Tuesday, January 25th (No school on 1/24 due to teacher PD). Next Tuesday 1/25, students will attend "SECOND SEMESTER CLASSES" for periods 1-7 and then take their 1st Semester, 1st Period Exam at the end of the day. The 35 minute class periods next Tuesday will be nice for teachers and students to review syllabi and classroom expectations together. Ms. Essinger will distribute 2nd Semester schedules to students this Friday, January 21st. Most coursework is available on teacher Google Classroom websites or through Google Docs, but for those students with concerns about accessing study materials for exams tomorrow, the building is now open and will be open through 9:00pm tonight. Students are welcome to come in and get materials out of their lockers as needed. Additionally, please note that there are 30 minute study periods tomorrow and Friday which will give students and teachers time to prepare. Stay warm today! Sincerely, Mr. Travis

Munising Public Schools was made aware of a post late this afternoon that has been shared nationally this week on the social media platform TikTok. The post refers to a threat to school safety on Friday, December 17, 2021. The post appears to be part of a national TikTok trend and did not originate in our school district. While we do not believe the threat to be credible, we will continue to monitor the situation. We are working with the Munising City Police and Alger County Sheriff Department in an effort to always keep our students, staff, and community safe. School will be conducted as a normal day tomorrow, and there will be an increased police presence in our school buildings. The situation again serves as a good example of why it is important to avoid sharing posts online that refer to school safety threats. Even if they are not credible threats, they can cause a great deal of stress and anxiety for students, families and staff. We ask our families to take time to talk to your students about the influence of social media and the potential consequences of engaging in this type of behavior. We must take every threat seriously and students face the possibility of suspension or expulsion, and serious legal action for making threats. We thank all of our students, families and staff for working together to ensure a safe, secure, and positive learning environment.

COMMON CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS FOR ALL LEARNERS AT MUNISING MIDDLE-HIGH SCHOOL: Today the Teaching Staff at Munising MS/HS shared our new "Common Classroom Expectations for All Learners". The staff has worked together for several months to agree upon what is expected and craft the precise language to convey our expectations. These 8 expectations are currently laminated and posted throughout the building in all classrooms and other locations. This document provides a uniform vocabulary for students and staff and focuses on characteristics and actions that lead to success. Promoting expectations rather than rules helps build a positive culture by placing an emphasis on doing right versus avoiding wrong. Feel free to talk about these with your students at home. Go Stangs!

On Thursday, December 9, 2021 at approximately 10:30am, a hand-written threat was found in a bathroom at the Munising Middle/High School. The Munising City Police were contacted immediately and investigated the written threat. Both the Munising Middle/High School and Mather Elementary went into lockdown mode for the safety of the students and staff. In a separate incident, at approximately 11:00am, Munising Public Schools was notified of a threat in a video that a student had made. Munising City Police began a separate investigation into the video, resulting in a student being removed from school and released into the custody of a parent. A report will be filed with the Alger County Prosecutor office for possible charges. The hand-written threat was deemed to not be credible by school officials and the Munising City Police, but is still being investigated. As a precautionary measure, Munising City Police will remain on site at the Middle/High School for the remainder of the school day, with school safety protocols still in place.

ATTENTION PSAT & SAT TESTERS & PARENTS - GRAPHING CALCULATORS ARE VERY IMPORTANT: For Fall Testing this Wednesday, October 13th (PSAT for 10th & 11th) and on October 28th (PSAT-9th & SAT 12th) it is recommended that student testers have a College Board approved graphing calculator. The approved models by brand are available at this link -https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt-psat-10/taking-the-tests/test-day-checklist/approved-calculators. It may be difficult to borrow or buy a calculator in time for fall testing, but it is extremely important that students have a graphing calculator for PSAT & SAT testing in April. Although numerous brands/models are approved by the College Board, if you are going to purchase one for spring testing, we strongly recommend that you select the TI84+ CE. This calculator can be purchased from numerous vendors, but this link enables you to review it online - https://www.amazon.com/Texas-Instruments-TI-84-Graphing-Calculator/dp/B00TFYYWQA/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=ti84+plus+ce+calculator&qid=1633966672&sr=8-3 In addition to being a useful tool that helps students to earn higher scores on PSAT/SAT, a good graphing calculator is a great classroom tool in Algebra, Geometry, and Precalculus.

Over the past few days, several Munising High School students tested positive for COVID-19. Due to delays in parents being contacted by the LMAS District Health Department because of the COVID case volume in their coverage area, school personnel will initially contact parents of students determined to be close contacts in school. Parents of recent close contacts have already been contacted by the school, and those parents will also receive a call from LMAS. An LMAS case investigator will also contact parents of the COVID positive student as soon as possible to determine if there were any close contacts outside of school. Due to Munising Public Schools doing universal masking, the new Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Quarantine Guidance allows the students determined to be close contacts to continue attending school, providing they are symptom free and test negative for COVID-19 for seven days after contact with the COVID positive student. This only pertains to students identified as close contacts in school. Munising school personnel will administer the COVID tests at the beginning of each school day. We thank our students, staff and parents for their patience and understanding in yet another challenging school year.

As many of you are aware, today Governor Gretchen Whitmer recommended, not required, that high school students move to remote learning for the next two weeks, and also recommended, not required, that youth sports suspend in-person activities (practices and games) for the next two weeks. The recommendation also stated that schools should make decisions based on input from their local health departments. The superintendents of all Marquette and Alger County schools met with their local health departments today and have made the decision to remain in school and continue in-person instruction, and to continue athletics with the required precautions. In Munising Public Schools, we’ve only had one student test positive for COVID-19 since February 3rd, and all spring sports athletes are now tested for COVID-19 on a weekly basis. Based on data from the health departments, while hospitalizations due to COVID-19 are rising slightly, overall rates in Upper Peninsula hospitals remain low. Thank you to our students, staff and parents for continuing to be diligent in wearing masks, staying home when sick, and taking the necessary precautions to keep everyone safe. We will continue to meet with our local health departments and follow their recommendations for possible closure if student and staff cases begin to increase.
