Begin Here.  End Anywhere.

We will provide a distinctly personal learning experience for each student.  We offer technology-integrated classrooms and flexible options to challenge our students.  When families entrust their children to us, we treat them with care, as if they are our own.   Our goal is to provide exceptional learning experiences to prepare students for their journey to college and/or into the work force, while developing lifelong relationships.  We invite you to join Tahquamenon Area Schools to be part of and celebrate your child’s many successes.

Coding

If you read the papers and listen to the news, the next wave of high tech, high paying jobs will be in computer coding and robotics. President Obama just signed a request that will designate more money for computer classes in schools. The demand for these jobs will outpace the available students to fill these jobs in the near future. By 2020 there will be one million jobs available in our country for people with computer skills according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Smart kids and adults are taking computer courses across the nation in the hope of securing these jobs. At Newberry Elementary, all our students take a computer course as an elective class. This class includes a component of computer programming, more commonly referred to as “coding” Our students can “Begin Here and End Anywhere” as long as they work hard and take the right classes that prepare them for their futures.

Elementary Summer School

Almost 40 elementary students participated in our 6 week summer school which involved blended learning with computers and also face to face instruction. Students worked at home on-line or with workbooks and then met on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week from 10:00am to 12:00pm. Megan Arens, Lori Puckett, and Michelle Furest were our summer school instructors. The summer ended with a fieldtrip to Mackinaw Island on Aug. 3 The research is clear that students who read and do math over the summer avoid the summer slide More...

School Board Recognition Month

This month is time to honor our volunteer school board members and all the great aspects of public education. Working in education has always been about service and leadership to the community and students. Taquamenon Area School board members develop policies and maintain the financial budget decisions that shape our school. They are responsible for our annual budget of $6.8 million, 718 students, and 48 employees. They are community members who give of their time without fanfare, or accolades. They make incredibly important decisions that impact the education of our students and ultimately the community. Although we should show appreciation for our school board members and the important work they do year around, this month gives an opportunity to recognize the dedication and devotion of these fine people who represent our community in serving our school. When you see these people in the store or out in the community, please stop them and say thank you. We want to take this opportunity and thank our Tahquamenon Area Schools board members who devote a significant amount of time to ensure a great education of our students. “Begin here, end anywhere” becomes a reality for our students as a result of their support and encouragement of our schools The men and women serving on the Board of Education for the Taquamenon Area Schools and their years of service are: • Chris Beaulieu 15 years • Tuffy Burton 14 years • Bruce Klussmeier 10 years • Sam Oswald 4 years • Stuart McTiver 1 year • Brian Rahilly 1 year • Michelle Zellar 3 months
