A Message from Kristi Teall, Superintendent
We are almost half way through the school year. Fall has come and gone and so have the uncertainties of coming to school. Our students are settled in and doing a wonderful job. Being a Shark is more than just attending our school. It is being part of our Shark family. Whether our students are earning Shark Fins for good behavior, wearing Shark attire to showcase their school, displaying Shark Pride beaming with excitement, or simply being themselves which is the Shark way, they are happy to be here every day. That in and of itself makes me smile.
In the fall edition of Shark Tales, I wrote: Sydney J. Harris once said, “The purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows.” In doing this, we will continue to do the following:
- Teach students to see opportunity in front of them.
- Teach them to become leaders for themselves and for fellow students.
- Teach students to “walk with” each other in times of need and struggle and to celebrate together in times of joy and happiness.
- Teach students what an education will provide for them.
- Care for our students.
We will always do the best for our students. That is a promise that I can make to all of you. Join me for coffee or conversation anytime. I would love to sit down and talk with you. Educationally yours, Kristi Teall

McCloskey to play baseball for Cornerstone University
Congratulations, Dylan McCloskey! Dylan signed his letter of intent to play baseball at Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He has come a long way to get to this point, as he mentioned in his statement he made during the signing. During his up and coming years, baseball was just a fun way to hang out with his friends and make his parents proud. McCloskey is an exceptional outfielder for the Sharks and plans to play right field at Cornerstone. At the end of the signing, McCloskey thanked all of the people who helped get him where is today and for everyone's unconditional love and support through the whole process. Dylan said, “It was cool to be able to share the experience with all of my friends and family and thank you to everyone who’s made an impact on my decision and life. I’m excited to compete.”
