This morning an adult male, who appeared to be intoxicated, stopped at both our Elementary and our Jr./Sr. High School buildings separately, requesting access to walk through the buildings. He was not allowed to do this and was asked to leave and has not been back. We contacted the Lenawee County Sheriff’s Department to report the incident. At no time were our students in danger and all is well. We will contact the Sheriff’s Department if he should return. As a reminder, all building doors are kept locked throughout the day and anyone wanting access to either building must be buzzed in by office staff. Both offices are aware of this incident.

On Friday, October 15th, the Sand Creek Community Schools, in cooperation with the Sand Creek Athletic Boosters, will conduct a recognition ceremony and tribute to Penny & Gaylord Herriman for a lifetime of service and dedication to the Sand Creek athletic program and generations of Aggie athletes. The ceremony will take place at approximately 6:40 pm on Ayers Field prior to the start of the varsity football game with Morenci. Penny and Gaylord's sacrifice and commitment to improving the athletic opportunities for Sand Creek students left an indelible mark on our athletic facilities. Although Penny is no longer with us, she will never be forgotten...she is forever in our hearts...forever an Aggie. We will honor Gaylord and Penny (posthumously) with the placement of a permanent plaque near the pavilion on the south side of campus.

Washington DC Trip Update: We have heard from a few people who are upset they are on a waitlist again because they didn’t get the registration email and pay within 7 days. Parents may have not seen it and it was overlooked so they were put back on the waitlist. Parents should call Brightspark and inform them that they overlooked the email and was put back on the waitlist. All you need to do is call Brightspark, re-register your account and then it gives you the payment option again. So everyone who missed the 7 day mark can call and just have them reload it all and then they can pay. If you have further questions please contact Mr. Benge at firstname.lastname@example.org
