From The Principal

Dear Falcon Families,

This week has been a very heavy and emotional week for our staff, students and community. When a tragedy hits this close to home, it really takes your breath away. I believe the best thing we can do is to reassure our children, love them, and hold them tighter in times such as these. When it comes down to it, the world runs on relationships. When we feel valued, heard, and appreciated, the world becomes a better place. It is our job as educators to find that special value that each child has. It is what I expect the schools to do for my own children and what you can expect of our staff.

Our Falcon community is strong and full of love and support. Please pay attention to your child, talk to them, and please tell them to be very careful on social media. Thank you all for being so supportive during this week. Together we will endure.


If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me at 586-797-1600.

Go Falcons!

Tim Youngblood

Interim Principal
