High School students have received their Chromebooks and they are doing an amazing job of adjusting!  The staff also has done an amazing job of working with each other and with the students in order to get the Chromebook experience off to a great start!  We are proud of our students and staff for their efforts to make this a positive experience for all.  - Mrs. McLouth, Secretary

The Middle School cross country team is having great success!  The conference meet held at Hart on Tuesday yielded impressive results with the boys' and girls' teams BOTH winning the WMC meet!  Not only did both teams win, Andrew Whitney and Adelyn Ackley were conference champions in both races.  ​We are proud to see members of the team improving with every race.

The third graders had a chance to visit Camp Newaygo, this was a completely free trip funded by the Gerber Foundation! The students were able to pet “Sonic” the hedgehog.  They also learned about animal adaptations, plants and vegetation, rocks and minerals, and they even made their own fossils! This field trip provided a hands on experience that served as an extension to the 3rd grade science curriculum. Our students really enjoyed this experience! - Mrs. Baker, 3rd Grade Teacher



We are proud to say that we had a great turn out at our family social event trip to Lewis's Farm Market this past week! The GSRP children had the opportunity to ride the "apple express" and learn about the different types of apples that are grown on their farm. Overall, it was a fantastic learning experience for our preschoolers and their  families!
