Exploring Engineering and Stem (8-12yr olds) Workshops – First One This Thursday!

The program is called Exploring Engineering and STEM and is for tweens. Each month we focus on a different career area of STEM. One or more professionals will share what they do for a career with the kids and how they got into it, plus answer questions. Then kids do a hands-on activity related to the career area. The program meets once a month on Thursdays from 6:30-7:30 PM, usually at the North Branch Library located at 155 Riley Street in Holland.


Let’s Highlight Your AMAZING Kiddos!

Please use THIS FORM to simplify the process! *please note, there is a 5 image MAX, choose wisely.* -Social Media Team

October Lunch Menu

If your MIDDLE SCHOOL student is visiting our RE:Fuel Coffee Shop over the lunch period, they are welcome to bring a lunch from home or order hot lunch (free to all students all year) the day they are on campus.

If your HIGH SCHOOL student is visiting, they are welcome to choose either of the options, above or sign out to visit McDonald’s, Taco Bell, Blimpee or Thai Avenue. Purchasing lunch from these establishments is not free, however =).


NEW! Go Guardian Software

In order to increase students online safety, engagement, and accountability we are now using GoGuardian. What is GoGuardian software you may ask? It is designed to help us easily manage student devices, better understand our kiddos, and keep them safer online. Staff are able to see, in real-time, students following along with lessons (or not) in class and help re-direct those needing assistance. As always, please reach out with any questions you may have.
