On Friday, Lincoln Middle School had a Shining Stars party for students with all As and Bs, along with all Os and Ss for conduct grades throughout the first five weeks of school. They had an assembly line ice cream sundae bar, popcorn, and a prize raffle. What a great way to end the week!
Most of you know by now, but we had to give the Brown Jug back to Center Line after Friday's game. Our Abes gave their all like always, and we'll do all we can to claim it back next fall. In the meantime, there are still shirts available to commemorate the big event. Both Superintendents Mrs. Bognar and Mr. Haynes (from CLPS) made a bet, so Mrs. Bognar will be wearing a Center Line shirt to the next Board meeting.
Last Thursday, 2021 Alumnus Kamryn Ivy took time out of her work schedule to come speak to the dental students about what it was like going though the LHS dental program and how it landed her a job this past June working as a dental assistant at Marlow Family Dental. Students asked great questions and she explained the importance of dental safety by helping students handle dental anesthesia syringes. Students are also practicing hand washing in dental lab .
Last Saturday, Coach A and our Abes Football team were able to travel to see the Spartans win after a great victory of their own Friday evening. Check out their perspective from the stands. Go, Green!

It's already the last week of Session One of Summer School! Time flies when you're learning and having fun. Check out some highlights of our enrichment classes - you'll be wishing you signed up with our awesome staff and students. Session Two will kick off next Monday, July 26.
Today kicked off our second week of summer school. Last week, we already heard choruses of, "I LOVE Summer School!" as children were getting on buses for the weekend. Our older students might say it differently, but they are taking every opportunity to recover courses and get ahead this summer. It's great having so many staff members and students around this time of year.
Last week, the Warren Weekly ran a feature article on Mrs. Avila being named a Teacher of the Year for Macomb County. This honor is well-deserved.

We appreciate working with you in Van Dyke Public Schools. https://www.candgnews.com/news/lhs-educator-is-countys-teacher-of-the-year--120911
Happy Thursday! Don't forget about our Food Service Department's Meet Up and Eat Up program this summer. There will be plenty of opportunities to pick up breakfast and lunch throughout the week. Take a look at the flyer, and we'll see you soon.
Good afternoon, VDPS Community! We can't wait to see our summer students on Monday. Although MDHHS has lifted restrictions in most public places, it is still recommended by the Health Department that masks are worn indoors for children and anyone who has not been vaccinated. We'll still be wearing masks inside during our summer program. We will have masks, sanitizer, and all necessary PPE available. We will see you on the 28th.
How's your summer going so far? We miss our students, but we are so busy getting ready for our summer programs. Be sure you've registered your elementary students, and don't forget to register secondary students next week. It will be a great summer of seeing everyone in person again!
