Class of 2021 students & parents: This is just a quick reminder to those who have not completed their students FAFSA; the Michigan deadline for state aid is March 1. Thus it is very important to get this submitted as soon as possible. Even if a student is undecided right now, it would be a good idea to complete it anyway to give them the possibility of financial aid for college if they decide to pursue it in the future. It is a free application and provides free financial aid; please take advantage of it! Please let Mr. Frieswyk know when you complete it or if you have any questions.

As may have heard, there was an accident on M-115 near N. 9 Road after school today involving one of our buses. Our bus was rear-ended by another vehicle. Thankfully, no one was injured and all students were transferred to another bus and driven home. . The driver of the bus was uninjured and able to remain calm and support the students as they awaited the arrival of the other bus. Mr. Akom, Mr. Fowler and Mr. Charnes all went to the scene to assist in safely transferring the students to the other bus. Once again, we are very thankful that no one was injured and that all of our students are safe.

It was a successful week for our Mesick student-athletes who were finally able to get back in to action for the first time since March 9th! On Wednesday, our JH Cross Country team competed in Cadillac. Gunner Hallett (6th grade) and Bryce Akom (8th grade) each placed in the top 10 in their division. Cody Linna (7th) was able to go the distance and bring home first place for the Bulldogs! Last night, our JV Volleyball team fell in two close sets with Brethren while the varsity swept three straight sets against the Bobcats. The sets went 25-9, 25-21, and 25-16. Great Job to all involved. Our JH Volleyball girls take the court on Monday/Wednesday next week with JV/V Volleyball playing on Thursday. JV Football will be playing Thursday at Marion while the Varsity Football team will look to defend their conference championship at home on Friday night vs Marion. Please remember, at this point we are only allowing two spectators per participant at home events. As the season progresses, we will be looking at opening up the events to more spectators if possible. But again, for now there are restrictions including social distancing and wearing a mask at all times. We should have a streaming service up and running by next week so anyone who wants to tune in, will be able to watch the contests live via YouTube. Have a great weekend and Go Bulldogs!

Fall Sports Update:  Football is back!  The MHSAA has officially reintroduced Football back into the Fall 2020 schedule.  There are a lot of moving parts but JH, JV, and Varsity officially begin practice today.  JV/V will continue to have practice right after school while the JH will practice from 5-7 pm.  JV/V football will resume games next week with their regularly scheduled opponents (this can change, please check the Mesick app frequently to stay on top of changes).   We will update everyone whenever there is a change to the schedule or an update on a procedure. Junior High players who did not have a physical last year will need one before starting practice.  Their first game is currently scheduled for Wednesday, September 23rd. Also, please be aware that attendance for all home/away games will be limited to two guests per participant.  This means each participant in Volleyball/Football/Cross Country will be given two tickets that they will then disburse to family/friends.  You will need these tickets to be allowed to enter contests in Mesick or at an opponent's venue.  Because of the limit on attendance, we will be live streaming all of our home contests.  Please stay tuned for that link! If there comes an opportunity to add additional spectators at our home events, Mesick will do everything possible to make those accommodations. If you have questions or need clarification on a topic, please do not hesitate to email Coach Duby at dubyk@mesick.org.  There are a lot of moving parts and we appreciate your patience as we navigate Fall Sports!  Go Bulldogs!!

Cross Country and Volleyball will continue as planned.  A decision from the MHSAA on Volleyball contests will take place next week and we will communicate that information when it is received.  For additional details on today's announcement, please see the link below.   Our thoughts are with our players and coaches as they look to navigate this Fall without football.   https://www.mhsaa.com/News/Press-Releases/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/9189/MHSAA-Announces-Football-to-Move-to-Spring-Season-for-2020-21?fbclid=IwAR2P8O0np6qIEaU9MCDIPNMykXQZWQR1Xvg8hjUCl3Y9VXXxWwinnUJb3uE

With the official return to Fall Sports starting Monday, August 10th, here are some reminders:  Mesick Student-Athletes who have a sports physical from the 2019-2020 school year will not be required to get a new physical for this school year.  Instead, a MHSAA health questionnaire will be required and is available at the MHSAA website, in the main office of the high school, or will be provided by a head coach.  Any students new to Mesick Schools will need to have their previous school send over a physical form to Coach Duby dubyk@mesick.org.  JV/V Football will begin practice Monday August 10th, while JV/V Volleyball and Varsity Cross Country will begin on Wednesday, August 12th.  JH Football, JH Volleyball, JH Cross Country, and the JH Co-Ed Soccer team are eligible to begin practice on Monday, August 24th.  Please make sure all student-athletes report to practice with the appropriate attire, a face mask, and their own water bottle.  Coaches will be conducting Covid-19 screenings prior to every practice.  If you have not yet signed up for a Fall sport, it is not too late!  We are still signing student-athletes up for all of the Fall sports, including our Cross Country team who is coming off of a fantastic 2019 season.  Cross Country is an excellent option for those who love to run, want to stay active, or are looking for a way to get in shape for Winter and Spring sports.  We offer Cross Country at the Junior High and High School levels.  Please email Coach Duby at dubyk@mesick.org to get signed up or with any questions you may have!  Stay safe and Go Bulldogs!

Cash Opportunity for the Class of 2021: A letter was mailed home a few weeks ago about a new program we will be implementing for your class. Our program is called College-Bound Mesick, & it includes a few different exciting initiatives. For right now, we'd like you to focus on the first step of the first initiative - “6 Steps to $600.” We received a grant to promote the College Board’s Opportunity Scholarships & the steps included in applying for them. There are six steps in the program, including building a college list, updating your college list, applying to colleges, practicing for the SAT, improving your score from your PSAT/NMSQT that you took last fall, & completing your FAFSA. Our initiative offers you a chance to win $600 for completing these six steps. Any member of the Mesick Class of 2021 who completes these six steps will be entered into a drawing for $600; this drawing is only for Mesick students, so one of you will win! Each of these steps also enters you into the College Board’s scholarship competitions, so you have a chance at even more money. These are steps we would like all of our students to be taking, so we wanted to offer an incentive to you for completing the steps. The first step is building your college list on the College Board website, & that needs to be done by the end of July. You have two weeks left to complete this step! You can probably complete this step in a half hour or less. Please take the time to follow the instructions below. Login to your College Board account. Scroll to the bottom & click on Opportunity Scholarships. Use the search engine to find colleges that might be possibilities for you. Save at least six colleges to your college list by July 31. Email Mrs. Rasmussen with any questions. :-)

Hello again Everyone, After communicating all morning with 9&10 weather and our sound and technical teams and gathering the best information we have available, we have determined that the forecasted weather presents too many risks to have a safe ceremony tonight. We have made the decision to postpone the graduation ceremony until this Sunday June 28th at 1:00 pm. The student walk-through of the JR/SR High will take place beginning at 11:45 until 12:30. Students should report to the staging area near the concession stand by 12:45. The decision to postpone was made with safety in mind and knowing that we have a safer and more enjoyable option for our graduates and guests on Sunday. We have waited this long to provide the best ceremony to the class of 2020. We will only need to wait 2 more days. We are sorry for any inconvenience this creates for you and your family.

Hello Everyone, As you know, graduation is scheduled for tonight at 7:00. If you have been looking at the weather, you also know that we have a risk of severe storms this evening as well. We are keeping an eye on the radar, making contact with our connection at 9&10 weather, and communicating with our sound and technical crews, and we will be making decisions accordingly. We will have a final decision about the ceremony by 1:00 at the latest. Please keep an eye on your email, Facebook, and the live feed for further updates.

Preventing the Summer Slide Reading 20 minutes a day is Huge! According to research, a child who reads 20 minutes outside of school a day will learn 1,800,000 words by the end of sixth grade. WoW!

Hi Mesick families! As the school year comes to a close, it’s hard not to think about how different things are from years past. Last day celebrations, graduation, and other summer “kick-off’s” will also look different this year. There will likely be some emotions that come up as the end of the school year sets in. Some of you might feel relief and happiness, others may feel angry and upset, worried, or a combination of many feelings. Know that whatever you’re experiencing is valid and okay! Everyone handles things differently. To help focus on some positivity amidst the challenges, I encourage you to help your children think about the friends they’ve made, the lessons they’ve learned, and how much they’ve grown this year! What were some challenges they overcame? What were some positive memories? Have a sunny Monday! -Ms. Stevens

Hi Mesick families! This week’s focus is going to be on the family. Research shows that spending meaningful and fun time together as a family has a variety of benefits. Here are just a few of them. 1. Better Behavior Kids need strong, loving relationships with family members in order to develop well. Research shows that when teens spend more time with their parents, they are less likely to skip school or get in trouble with the law. Spending that quality time together as a family may be key to helping your kids stay out of trouble in the future! 2. Less Stress Feeling stressed by all your responsibilities? Take a break and have some family fun! Studies show that leisure can be an effective way to both cope with stress and protect against stress’s negative health impacts. So try making time for play time as a family to reduce stress for both you and your kids. 3. Stronger Family Bonds Time together doing something relaxing or enjoyable can help you draw closer together. Just like couples benefit from sharing fun activities, families need fun too! In fact, research supports the fact that spending leisurely time together as a family improves family bonding and satisfaction. Ready, set, play! “We may have our differences, but nothing is more important than family..” -coco (2017) -Ms. Stevens

Hi Mesick families, Day 3 of gratitude! Here are a few things you can do at home to incorporate and encourage gratitude. 1. Daily gratitude reflection There are many ways to incorporate gratitude into your daily life. One great way is for everyone to share one thing they are grateful for at the dinner table each night. Everyone gets a chance to reflect upon their day, and find just one thing to be grateful for. This helps children gain a little bit of perspective, and appreciate that while every day may not be good, there is always something good in every day. 2. Help others Encourage your kids to help others in age appropriate ways. Help them to find causes they feel passionate about and are interested in, and allow them to contribute in their own unique way, using their special skills and talents. It could be donating belongings or food to the homeless, volunteering their time at a nursing home, donating their pocket money to a good cause, participating in a fun run to raise money for a particular charity. Whatever it is, giving to others in need will help your child appreciate their own life and how fortunate they are. 3. Say thank you Using manners certainly helps us to express gratitude for others, but I’m not just talking about saying thank you to your brother for passing the milk at breakfast this morning. I’m talking about thanking people for the small things they do for us that make our days brighter. Express appreciation to your neighbor for always bringing your bin in off the curb for you. Let your friend know how much you appreciate her always being there to listen when you need to talk. Thank your mum for the way she always brings you a special home made treat when she comes to visit. Thank your child’s teacher for always showing up to class with a smile, even when she’s been up late marking homework. “Appreciation is a wonderful thing: it makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.” -Voltaire Have a great day! -Ms. Stevens

Hi Mesick families! Gratitude! What is it? Gratitude is one of many positive emotions. It's about focusing on what's good in our lives and being thankful for the things we have. Gratitude is pausing to notice and appreciate the things that we often take for granted, like having a place to live, friends, family, even computer or phone access. It's taking a moment to reflect on how fortunate we are when something good happens — whether it's a small thing or a big thing. We can use lots of words to describe feelings of gratitude: We might say we feel thankful, lucky, fortunate, humbled, or blessed. **the ‘Thankful Phone’ activity is hard to read. The directions say- “challenge those in your family to share a picture from their phone (that they’ve already taken) that best represents the items on the list. Explain yourself choices!” “We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.” – Cynthia Ozick -Ms. Stevens

Hi Mesick families! As we wrap up Memorial Day celebrations, this week’s topic of gratitude seems pretty relevant! We’ve touched on this subject before, but it’s so important, it’s worth reviewing again. Gratitude can: -improve physical health -improve sleep -improve psychological health -increase empathy -reduce aggression -enhance self-esteem -improve mental strength -increase social connection And more...! “Gratitude turns what we have into enough.” -unknown Have a wonderful week, -Ms. Stevens

Hi Mesick families! Day 2 on self-esteem. Kids who feel good about themselves have the confidence to try new things. They are more likely to try their best. They feel proud of what they can do! Self-esteem helps kids cope with mistakes and try again if they fail at first. This can help them do better in school, at home, and with friends and family. Here is a fun video for younger kids, all about what makes them special! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrPm7BasRBo Here is an encouragement jar activity for older kids (or for the whole family). There is such amazing power in beautiful words! “Beauty begins the moment you decided to be yourself.” -Coco Chanel Have a great day! -Ms. Stevens

Hi Mesick families! This weeks topic is self-esteem. What is self esteem, and why is it important? It’s used to describe a person’s overall sense of self-worth or personal value. It’s very important , because kids who feel good about themselves feel liked and accepted, confident, proud of what they do, and they believe in themselves. Kids with low self-esteem are critical of themselves, they focus on failures instead of successes, and lack confidence and a willingness to try new things at times. Self-esteem starts as early as babyhood and is important to grow from there! Early on, it can be showing positive attention, care, and acceptance. This week, I will share some activities to help build older student’s self-esteem. Here’s an activity that celebrates your child's traits and abilities through a self portrait activity! https://www.pbs.org/parents/crafts-and-experiments/build-confidence-with-a-self-portrait "The way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice." -Peggy O'mara Have a great week! -Ms. Stevens

Hi Mesick families! Connection and kindness- here are some ways we can stay connected in a time when we often feel so disconnected. Along with online platforms like google hangouts and zoom, and talking over the phone, here are a few ideas of ways to connect and take a break from screens: 1. Get a pen pal! Write a letter, postcard, or card to someone you know to let them know you’re thinking about them. Bonus- you can practice writing and patience too! 2. RAK- Random Act of Kindness. It’s important to follow social distancing guidelines, but that doesn’t eliminate all kind acts! Here are some examples: write or draw or create something to send to a friend or an older adult who may be lonely at this time, make a positive sign to put in your yard (or a neighbors), leave a note for your mail person or another essential worker as a thank you, send a note or thank you to your teacher or school staff, or even help out a little more around the house! 3. Make a gratitude jar- try and get your whole family to participate too! Write down things you are grateful for (small and big) put them in a jar, and read them at the end of the week. 4. Every family has a different schedule, but try and find 10 minutes or more to do a non-electronic activity together. This could be a playing board game, playing cards, cooking a meal, a conversation, building something, learning something new etc. 5. Connect with nature! Get outside and explore, see, feel, listen and touch things in nature and remember that all things are connected! “Do small things with great love” -mother Teresa Have a kind weekend! -Ms. Stevens

Hi Mesick families! This week’s topic is kindness. What is kindness? Kindness is showing concern about the well-being and feelings of others. It’s the quality of being friendly, warm-hearted, considerate, generous, and more. Why is kindness important? Here are just a few benefits children will experience from learning values like kindness: 1. Happy children! Studies show that kindness activated the joyful area of the brain. 2. Improved health and less stress! Being kind increases happiness and decreases stress. 3. Greater sense of belonging! Even small acts of kindness create feelings of self-worth and belonging. 4. Increased feelings of gratitude! Children learn to appreciate what they have when helping others. 5. Better concentration! Kindness helps children feel good, and having a positive outlook increases attention spans and encourages more creative thinking. 6. Less bullying! Research shows that effects of bullying can be reduced significantly with kindness/related programs. Try some of these activities with your children at home! “In a world where you can be anything, be kind.” -unknown Have a great week! -Ms. Stevens

Hi Mesick families! Last day of emotional regulation info. Here are some tips for emotional coaching (we do this every day as parents/caregivers). 1. Be aware of your child's emotions. 2. Recognize emotion as an opportunity for connection or teaching. 3. Help your child verbally label emotions. 4. Communicate empathy and understanding. 5. Set limits and problem-solve. Please also check out the other handouts I've included-I hope they're helpful! Last, but not least, look for Friday's, "Bravo Bulldogs" post tomorrow to see some Elementary highlights of remote learning.

Hi Mesick Families, Emotional regulation, day three! To understand emotions, it helps to understand how they impact the brain! (please see accompanying photo of the brain that goes along with this explanation) Our brain is like zoo, filled with lots of different animals; each animal having a different role: -The owl sits calmly at the front, ready to solve problems and help calm the monkey down. -The monkey examines things with curiosity and decides whether a certain change of situation is good or bad for you. When he spots danger, he runs wild, scaring and agitating all the other animals, except for the owl which he simply throws out, so he can keep making a mess with no one to stop him. -The elephant has excellent memory. He sits there pretty quietly but only until he sees something that reminds him of an unpleasant experience. He then immediately alerts the monkey who runs wild all over again. -The rabbit is always on the lookout for danger; when he sees the monkey isn’t calm, he quickly runs away and hides. -The lion waits for the monkey to get started; that’s a sign for him to attack. -As for the penguin, the moment he senses that things are going bad, he freezes on the spot! Now imagine what would happen in a zoo with an over exaggerating elephant, a hyperactive monkey that’s constantly edgy, or a rabbit that runs and hides even when things are not that bad. Tough, indeed! Which animals run your brain? Why did we choose these animals? When do we respond from the penguin? When do we respond from the lion? When do we respond from the rabbit? What other animal would we add to the zoo? "Your mind is a powerful thing. When you fill it with positive thoughts, your life will start to change." -Anonymous Happy Wednesday! -Ms. Stevens

Hi Mesick Families, The focus this week is emotional regulation, and learning to manage those powerful feelings we all have. Here's one technique I love! S – Stop T – Take A Breath O – Observe – your thoughts and feelings P- Pull Back – put in some perspective – what is the bigger picture? P – Practice What Works – Proceed – what is the best thing to do right now? Next time you (or a kiddo or loved one) is struggling to get emotions under control, give it a try. Here's a video that helps explain further: https://youtu.be/4x35DyHwfto Please check out the included photos to learn more about understanding thoughts and emotions. "Feel the feeling but don't become the emotion. Witness it. Allow it. Release it." -Crystal Andrus Have a great evening! -Ms. Stevens

We all remember the teacher that had a big positive impact on our lives when we were in school. I consider myself lucky to be surrounded by those types of teachers every day at work (or these days, in virtual meetings). Happy Teacher Appreciation Day to the most caring, hardest working, most fun, teachers around! Mesick Teachers truly are the best!

Hi Mesick Families, This week were going to focus on emotional regulation! What is emotional regulation? It's about having the skills to control your behavior, emotions, and thoughts while you navigate life. We learn emotional regulation skills to help us manage the way we feel and cope with situations. To learn these skills, we first need to understand and identify feelings. The video below is for younger students to begin to understand anger and controlling it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxSKKtUdAjU This video is for older students, and is about understanding why we lose control of our emotions. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bKuoH8CkFc&feature=emb_rel_end Remember, THINK before you speak: "Is is True?" "Is it Helpful?" "Is it Inspiring?" "Is it Necessary?" "Is it Kind?" Have a great Monday! -Ms. Stevens

Hi Mesick families! Teachers inspire curiosity and a lifelong love of learning. They motivate, they support, they listen, and they go above and beyond for their students and families- and now they're doing it all remotely. This week is NATIONAL TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK! It's a chance for us to thank educators for all of the incredible things that they do! Here are some ways we can thank our teachers from home: *Give your teacher a shout out here, on the school media page and use the hashtag #ThankATeacher *Write a thank-you note, poem, or song for your teacher *Draw a picture for your teacher and send via text or email *Send a video message thanking your teacher *Get creative! How has your teacher helped and inspired you? Have a great Monday! Ms. Stevens

Please pull into the drive closest to the football field and stop in front of the sidewalk that leads to the office. Someone will be there to ask your student’s name and we will bring their locker contents out to you. Some students took all of their belongings home when the closure first happened, so be sure to ask your student if they have items in their locker. We have not cleaned out gym lockers at this point.

Mesick Class of 2020: To commemorate the hard work and dedication from our 2020 seniors, we would like to honor them in an event known as "Decision Day." Before graduation, Decision Day is a time for seniors to commit to their future plans, goals, and dreams. We are asking seniors to submit a photo of themselves displaying what they plan on doing after high school. Whether going to college, joining the workforce, or pursuing other goals, we want you all to be excited about your futures! Some photo suggestions include: dressing up in your prospective college gear, dressing up for the job you want, or dressing up to represent your future aspirations. We would like you to get creative and celebrate your achievements virtually! If possible, find a way to incorporate the hashtags #DecisionDay #IDecided in your picture! We will then share your decision photos on our Facebook May 8th, 2020! To sweeten the deal, we are offering each senior a $10 Amazon E-Gift card for participating in our event! (To be eligible, please have an email with an Amazon account ready.) *Please submit all photos to Mrs. Rasmussen @ rasmussenj@mesick.org by 9AM, May 8th.* Congrats Bulldogs!

Hi Mesick families! Last coping skills post of the week here. Why do we need coping skills? Without healthy coping skills, kids are more likely to act out-sending a message that says, “I feel out of control, so I’m going to act out of control.” Kids who don’t know how to deal with their feelings are also more likely to turn to unhealthy coping strategies as they grow older. Two types of coping include problem-focused coping and emotional coping. Problem-focused coping examples are: asking for support, addressing time management, getting organized, making a total do’ list, and having healthy boundaries. Emotional coping examples are: exercising, taking a bath, doing yoga, and talking with a friend. What helps you cope? “Times of stress are also times that are signals for growth, and if we use adversity properly, we can grow through adversity.” -Abraham Twerski Happy Thursday! -Ms. Stevens

Hi Mesick families! More mindfulness today. Remember, mindfulness is about attention, intention, and attitude. It helps lower anxiety and stress, and increase positive moods; it can help us recognize and regulate emotions, and improve our self-control. In today’s post, there are links to two sample mindfulness videos. One is a mindful owl and best suited for 3rd grade and under. https://youtu.be/0k_R7R1gIdA The other video is a two minute affirmation song for listening and breathing (I’ve told folks to breathe in as colors appear, and breathe out as they start to disappear). This one is great for all ages! https://youtu.be/0qJo87mmR9M You will also see a worksheet to help kids (and adults too!) practice identifying feelings (emotional awareness) and ways to address them. Lastly, you will see a list of 23 mindful activities to try! “That’s life: starting over, one breath at a time.” -Sharon Salzburg Have a wonderful Wednesday! -Ms. Stevens

Hi Mesick families! Today I want to talk about mindfulness, which is part of coping-our topic of the week. Mindfulness is like a little MINI VACATION for your brain. It’s a little break to give your thoughts a chance to rest, and creates space to help you figure out your emotions and feel CALM. Today and tomorrow I will post mindfulness videos and activities that y’all can do as a family! “In today’s rush, we all think too much- seek too much- want too much- and forget about the joy of just being.” -Elkhart Tolle Have a mindful Tuesday! -Ms. Stevens

A Parent Guide will also be included in the first mailing. Each student will be mailed their first four books. Please remember to report books read to KRN via text, phone call, or e-mail to receive your child's remainder of the 9 books. KRN will then begin our weekly reporting calls the first week of June.

Good Evening Parents, I just wanted to update you regarding school closure for the rest of the school year. We have been in discussion for a while on what we will do to provide distance learning for our students. We now have guidance and will soon be submitting a plan to our ISD for approval, Once approved we will be able to implement the plan. As you can imagine, this will take time to implement. We appreciate your patience with this implementation. We should have more information to you in the next couple of days. We are also aware that many students have items in their lockers or classrooms that they would like to gather. Please know we are working on a plan for this as well. I hope everyone stays healthy and well.

Hello All, it has been quite some time since we have been able to update you all on the state of athletics. Below you will find the most recent press release from the MHSAA regarding the Winter sports tournament and Spring sports. It is said with a heavy heart that the Spring sports season is officially cancelled. Before reading the statement below, we would like to present you with some good news. This past basketball season six Mesick basketball players were selected to the WMD All Conference teams. 1st Team - Lexy Abraham and Lucas Hayes. 2nd Team - Jillian Hillier and Logan Wienclaw. Honorable Mention - Elizabeth Hamilton and Robert Spoor. Congratulations to all! We will be releasing some off season sports workouts soon for the kids to complete at home. Stay well and we will be in touch! EAST LANSING, Mich. – April 3 – The Michigan High School Athletic Association has canceled the remainder of the 2019-20 Winter and Spring sports seasons, in compliance with the Thursday (April 2) “state of disaster” directive by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer closing school buildings and moving education online for the remainder of the school year to help decrease the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. This will be the first school year to not see MHSAA Finals played in multiple sports since 1942-43, when World War II led to the elimination of Finals in most sports. The MHSAA on March 12 suspended its girls and boys basketball, girls gymnastics, boys ice hockey and boys swimming & diving tournaments amid COVID-19 concerns. All activity in all sports was halted March 13. Spring sports to that point had begun practice, but not competition. The MHSAA’s Representative Council approved during its Winter Meeting on March 27 a series of concepts for completing the Winter tournaments and an abbreviated Spring season, contingent on the lifting of a statewide quarantine. The closure of school buildings into June made those possibilities void. The MHSAA’s Executive Committee, comprised of officers of the larger Council, affirmed the decision today (April 3) to cancel the remainder of this school year’s activities. “We are heartbroken to not be able to provide these opportunities for Michigan’s student-athletes, and especially seniors. We continue to hear from dozens asking us to hold out hope. But safety always must come first, and Governor Whitmer is making courageous decisions to safeguard the people of our state,” MHSAA Executive Director Mark Uyl said. “We understand as much as anyone how much school sports mean to athletes and their communities. We had ideas and hopes for finishing Winter and Spring and helping bring some sort of normalcy after this long break. But this is the correct decision, and we will play our part in bringing schools and communities together again when the time is right.” “For now, we cannot state strongly enough that all students, staffs and others follow the guidelines established to slow the spread of this virus – we all must do our part.” Because the five Winter sports were not able to conclude with Finals, no champions will be awarded in those sports for 2019-20. However, championships won at earlier rounds of those tournaments (District or Regional) will continue to stand. The MHSAA will in coming weeks provide guidelines and other information pertinent to this unusual offseason as attention is turned to preparing for Fall 2020.

Biology students Another assignment I usually give at this time is to make a family tree, except instead of the usual the goal is to track characteristics, like eye color, hair color, baldness, earlobe attachment, cleft chin, ear point and so on so we can use it to show how genetics-inheritance works. You could even try to track medical conditions like high blood pressure, talk to your folks to make sure they are comfortable with it. The other thing that sometimes comes up is difficulty tracing family, so if you have trouble with that find a celebrity you want to be "part of your family" and that you can find a picture of so you can see the traits you are tracking. There are lots of examples on line if you look, be creative and have fun.

Saturdays elementary boys basketball tournament for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders has been cancelled. Please see the attached press release from the MHSAA regarding current high school athletics: MHSAA Tournaments to Continue with Attendance Restrictions, Online Streaming of Finals EAST LANSING, Mich. – March 12 – Postseason events sponsored by the Michigan High School Athletic Association and scheduled for March 12-14 will be conducted as scheduled. However, attendance will be restricted at all events through this weekend, with updates to be announced Monday, March 16, for the remainder of the girls and boys basketball tournaments. The MHSAA Ice Hockey Semifinals and Finals will be played March 12-14 at USA Hockey Arena, with Lower Peninsula Boys Swimming & Diving Finals beginning Friday, March 13 and concluding March 14 at Oakland University and Holland Aquatic Center. Girls Gymnastics at Rockford High School also will be competed Friday and Saturday this weekend. Girls Basketball Regionals Finals are scheduled for tonight, March 12, across the state, as are Boys District Finals on Friday, March 13. Based on recommendations from Gov. Gretchen Whitmer suggesting attendance limitations, no spectators will be allowed for the three Swimming & Diving Finals, both days, or Saturday’s Girls Gymnastics Individual Finals. These events have the highest number of participants of this weekend’s events. However, for Hockey Semifinals and Finals and Gymnastics Team Finals – events with far fewer participants – a limited number of spectators will be allowed, as determined by participating schools, to include only parents, legal guardians and essential administrators. Basketball games during the next two days also will allow only limited spectators, as determined by participating schools and following these same restrictions.  Each competing school will provide the entry list of parents, legal guardians and essential administrators to the host site prior to each contest. To recap, here is a breakdown of sport-by-sport attendance and broadcast stipulations. Boys Swimming & Diving Finals Rounds: Preliminaries on March 13, Finals on March 14 Attendance: No onsite spectators allowed.

Online ticket sales have been stopped, and all tickets that have been purchased are voided and will be fully refunded. Fans not allowed to attend will have the opportunity to watch coverage of all three of this weekend’s Finals live on MHSAA.tv. Complete streaming of all 12 Hockey Semifinals and Finals games is scheduled, as is streaming of both the Team and Individual Gymnastics Finals and both preliminaries and Finals for swimming & diving. MHSAA.tv also will carry a number of girls and boys basketball games this weekend as part of its usual subscription coverage by members of the School Broadcast Program. The streaming of all three divisions of the MHSAA Swimming & Diving Finals and both Team and Individual Gymnastics Finals will be provided FREE OF CHARGE.  More details about access to these free feeds will be provided in the next update this afternoon. This remains a fluid situation, and another update will be released today, March 12, at 2 p.m. Updates will be posted to the MHSAA Website at https://www.mhsaa.com/coronavirus. The MHSAA is a private, not-for-profit corporation of voluntary membership by more than 1,500 public and private senior high schools and junior high/middle schools which exists to develop common rules for athletic eligibility and competition. No government funds or tax dollars support the MHSAA, which was the first such association nationally to not accept membership dues or tournament entry fees from schools. Member schools which enforce these rules are permitted to participate in MHSAA tournaments, which attract more than 1.4 million spectators each year.
