It was a bittersweet weekend for Mesick Athletics. Our football team traveled to Kingston Friday night for the first round of the MHSAA playoffs but unfortunately were not able to bring home a win. The magical season has come to an end but not before the boys were able to make history as conference champions and notch 11 selections to the WMD All Conference team. It was an amazing year for these guys and it will not be the last time we hear about them! On Saturday afternoon at the Cross Country State Finals Grant Fleis ran the race of his life and finished 27th overall. This outstanding performance allowed Grant to bring home a medal and also got him selected to the Division 4 Boys All-State Cross Country Team. Congratulations Grant and we can't wait to see what you do as a Senior! Monday provided a big time performance from the Mesick Volleyball team as they beat rival Buckley in the first round of District play. The girls will be playing tonight at 6:00 pm vs Traverse City Christian in the District Semi-Final. We hope to see everyone there cheering on the girls as they look to play in their second district championship in the last 3 years. Also tonight our JH Boys Basketball team will be playing in their second contest of the season at Bear Lake. On Monday the boys split with Brethren and are looking to rebound tonight at 5:30 pm. Have a great week everyone and we hope to see you at the game!

Congratulations! Congratulations to everyone, the operational millage has unofficially passed. Thank you for everyone who took the time to vote!
Hello All, I received the email below this past weekend. This is a testament to our students, staff and community. This was the first time Mesick has played Kingston in any event. Great job on leaving a great impression! Proud to be a Bulldog! Good Evening Gentlemen; As I said last night to Kyle and Coach Ream, last night was what high school sports is really all about. I witnessed 31 players, several coaches and numerous Mesick fans show the best display of sportsmanship I have seen in my over 40 years of high school athletics. Helping players off the ground, patting them on the back and helmet and even once a Mesick player pulled a Kingston players jersey back over his shoulder pad. Watching your team shake the hands of the MHSAA officials was an inspiration. In the cafeteria after the game every player and coach that was there said "thank you" for the pizza and drinks. The parents I talked to were extremely friendly and complementary on the night as a whole. Regardless of the score, because of what I witnessed, The Mesick Bulldogs were the true winners. I (we) here at Kingston High School wish you great success in the future and hope to see you again down the road. -- Thank You Carl Nicol Kingston Athletics

We have been receiving several questions regarding secure phase and what that means. Basically, it is a 'soft' lock down. The students start in a lock down which allows us to know where everyone is located. Then the day resumes as normal, no students/staff are outside of the building and we have tighter control of exit/entry. All of the doors are locked everyday this safety practice continues through the secure phase.
Dear Parents, As many of you know the schools were placed into secure phase this morning. We had an unknown vehicle on school property. All of the students were safe during our secure phase. After contacting law enforcement with no threat found, secure phase was lifted. I know hearing of a secure phase can be a concern, but we will always err on the side of caution. I am very thankful for Mr. Fowler and his experience.

What is the reason for an Jump-a-thon? We understand budgets are tighter, so rather than the traditional catalog fundraiser that requires us to split the profits in the fundraiser company’s favor, Mesick Elementary has replaced their fundraising with a Jump-a-Thon. This will allow parents and business community to donate directly to Mesick Elementary, so we can provide the services and programs that enrich our elementary students’ school experience. New prize incentives will be available for your child to earn. It’s also a great opportunity to educate our Bulldogs about physical fitness, while supporting a good cause for their school community.

We are seeking interest from all stakeholders regarding starting school before Labor Day. The ISD has again received a three-year waiver for all schools within the WMISD to begin before Labor Day. It appears that enough schools in the ISD will be starting before Labor Day which will open the CTC and WMISD before Labor Day. This is not stating that Mesick Schools will be starting before Labor Day nor does this mean that we will not. This is purely information gathering. Regardless of the start date on the next school year calendar, Mesick students will still be required to attend school for 180 days and have at least 1,098 clock hours as required by state law.

We are very fortunate that our custodians are licensed bus drivers and they are able to substitute when needed. Please be aware that substitute bus drivers may run late as they are unfamiliar with some of the bus routes. We will do our best to keep the same subs on the same routes. This will enable more efficient routes and familiarity with our kids. If your child’s bus is running late, we will make every effort to contact you. There is a state wide shortage of bus drivers. If you are interested in becoming a bus driver or substitute bus driver, please contact Bob Harris or Scott Akom at 231-885-1200 for more information. We appreciate your understanding.

Our students are excited to be receiving these books!
Tonight's volleyball match will be varsity only starting at 6pm.
We want to remind everyone that we are bringing back the homecoming parade this year! The parade will start at 5:00 PM this Friday and will run down 115 through town. We hope to see everyone out and about showing their school spirit! If you have any questions, please ask!

It was a big win for the JH football team last night vs Brethren! It was a total team effort in the shutout as multiple guys made plays on offense and defense. Our junior high volleyball team brought home a win from Mason County Eastern last night. The girls are undefeated so far this season! The JV and Varsity volleyball team will also play at MCE tonight as they look to move improve to 4-0 in conference play. Tonight's JV football game vs Marion has been cancelled as Marion needed to combine forces to ensure they have the numbers for the varsity game. The varsity game will kick off at 7pm Friday night here in Mesick. We hope to see everyone there!

Last night in Mesick was a busy one! We had JV Football and the JV/V Varsity Volleyball teams all playing in Mesick. The Mesick JV Football team moved their record to 4-0 with a 48-6 victory over Grand Traverse Academy. Offensively with great up front blocking the team rushed for 256 yards collectively and 4 touchdowns. Quarterback Gabe Parrish was efficient throwing the ball as he was 7-12 passing for 2 TD's and 1 INT. The defense was sharp as well collecting 70 total tackles, intercepting 4 passes (all four by Logan Thomas), recording a safety, recovering a fumble and a quarterback sack. The JV Volleyball team had a great team effort sweeping Bear Lake by scores of 25-9 and 25-13. The Varsity team also provided a great team effort and wrapped the game up in the 4th match in thrilling fashion 28-26. Congrats to all of our student-athletes!
Yesterday we were informed that our Varsity football game scheduled for Friday at Manistee Catholic Central was going to be moved to Saturday due to a lack of officials. This morning a crew of officials stepped forward allowing us to keep the game on Friday. It was important to both sides that we keep the game on Friday night at 7pm in Manistee. There is currently a need for officials across the state of Michigan. If you or anyone you know is interested in earning extra income as a side job, becoming an official is a fun and easy way to do so. If this sounds like it may be an option, please email Coach Duby at Dubyk@mesick.org. Have a great day!

Congratulations to our JV and Varsity volleyball teams as they recorded the first ever Mesick win in our new conference, the West Michigan D League last Thursday. Not only did they start the new conference off with a win, but they also recorded the first victory on our new court. Congratulations girls and keep up the great work!

I would like to remind you that the Mesick Consolidated Schools takes student safety very seriously. This summer Mesick’s Board of Education approved in hiring a school safety officer. We have hired Mr. Fowler. Mr. Fowler is a licensed police officer and is a tactical medical instructor. He will be helping our kids remain safe by training students and staff and assisting with various safety needs. Mr. Fowler will also be carrying a weapon. Mesick Schools will remain a weapons free school zone with the exception of Mr. Fowler. We will be introducing Mr. Fowler to the students so that they know he is safe and here to keep them safe. He will also be at tonight’s open house if you would like to meet him.
