Dear West Branch - Rose City Families, Students, Staff and Community,
We’ve had an outstanding year as another school year ends and summer break begins once again. Our amazing students and staff have worked hard at achievement, and succeeded! Our graduates are heading into a new chapter of their lives well prepared for college and careers.
It is a delight to be finalizing plans to begin the repair of the pool, along with many other needed and exciting improvements across the district. The Falcon Raingarden Park at OHHS is back in full bloom and ready to accommodate visitors, picture opportunities and sponsors for engraveable pavers, too.
In our national news headlines we have, sadly, seen how important it is that our school buildings are safe and secure, which will require important safety updates in every building. To that end we are seeking a sinking fund millage proposal on the August 7th ballot and encourage our district families to go to the polls this summer.
We said goodbyes to a number of dedicated staff members who retired this year, and we are welcoming a great many new staff to join our dynamic team in the fall.
We will see many of our dedicated staff on and off throughout the summer months, some tutoring and others managing summer programs, many volunteering and a great many simply in their buildings preparing for the 2018-2019 school year, which is only ten weeks away.
It is an exhilarating time! Wishing you all a safe, fun and relaxing summer and looking forward to seeing many of you in the fall.
We trust you are encouraged by our efforts and successes and thank you for your continued support of West Branch - Rose City Area Schools.
Phil Mikulski, Superintendent
