On Monday, April 23, Bill Gehringer from the Michigan Institute of Aviation and Technology will be presenting to juniors and seniors in the auditorium starting at 9 a.m. Mr. Gehringer will be speaking to students in the a.m. Building Trades class, Auto class, and CAD class, as well as other juniors or seniors interested in the field of aviation. Also on Monday, a representative from Ferris State University will be here at 1 p.m. to meet with students interested in attending their programs.
Kudos to the Senior Class for their performances of Seniors LIVE! Next up will be the High School Drama Club presentation of “Give My Regards to Broadway!” Performances are scheduled in the auditorium for 7 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday; April 26, 27 and 28.
On Friday, May 4, there will be a concert for Middle School students in the auditorium starting at 10:15 a.m. A quintet of Marquette area college students, “Eclettico,” will be performing. The group plays a variety of string arrangements for music of composers ranging from Bach to the Beatles and Mozart to Lady Gaga. This will be a nice opportunity for the students to learn about string instruments as well as hear some music that may be new to them. Per Heidi Troyer, the Community Concerts Committee is sponsoring this event. Many will remember Crispin Campbell, the cellist that performed here last fall. His performance was also sponsored by this Committee. Manistique Area Schools is grateful for this continued support of music in the schools.
Manistique High School will once again offer the ACT Test on Saturday, June 9, in the upstairs classrooms of the high school.
