Last-minute staffing changes in the fall and wild weather in the winter could not derail an otherwise successful school year for Algoma School District. The school year was just over a month old when staff members that were a part of the Live Algoma Initiative traveled to New Jersey to collect their Culture of Health Prize from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. 2017 also saw high school students start their “pups” mentoring program with the elementary kids while alumni made sure future graduates had scholarships available for when they left Algoma. Superintendent Nick Cochart says it was great to see students and staff adjust to obstacles and do a great job doing it.
Students will have their last day of school June 8 and will not return for classes until September 4.
