Engadine Consolidated Schools

by Angie McArthur Superintendent

We had a great week for homecoming last week. Congratulations to the volleyball teams and the varsity football team for their victories during homecoming week. There were some great athletic contests during the week. Congratulations to the Homecoming King Devon Legault and Queen Hannah McArthur.

Many helped make the week successful, including the student council, cheerleaders, Walter Hanson, the Mackinac County Sheriff’s Office, Garfield Township EMS and Fire Department, and Matelski Lumber.

This year, Engadine Schools started a program called ZAP in 6th through 12th grades. ZAP stands for Zeroes Aren’t Permitted. Homework is intended to be a meaningful way for students to practice concepts to cement their learning. When students come to class without their homework completed and ready to submit, instead of a zero, the student receives a ZAP for their next lunch period. The student then has an opportunity to work to complete the assignment during lunch. The goal is for students to prioritize learning and come to class with homework completed and ready to be submitted.

Thursday, October 27, is Dig Pink, promising a great evening of volleyball between the Newberry Indians and the Engadine Eagles. Come out and enjoy a competitive night of volleyball, and fundraising to support breast cancer research. The event begins at 6 p.m. at Engadine Schools. Let’s paint the place pink!
