Sophomore - Senior Parents and Students: Summer Youth Police Academy
Each year the Grand Rapids Police puts on an academy for current sophomores, juniors, and seniors in high school. The academy is one week long and is a great opportunity for students interested in law enforcement to see what it is all about. It can introduce them to opportunities and positions in police work via classroom and hands-on training. The program also affords those who are eager to know more about police work to learn. You can go to www.JoinGRPD.com or see the attached flier. They are hoping to have at least 30 young persons in the program this year.
KH Students of the Week!
Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.PERSONAL MASTERY SPECIAL EDUCATION ENGLISH LEARNERS TECHNOLOGY IN THE CLASSROOM
